HI! Welcome to my blog. A blog I refused to start. I was forcibly pushed into blogging, and I LOVE IT! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! I have met and interacted with people all over the world! I have never had so much fun. The psychobabble that I share on this blog is probably not the wisest on the internet, but if it resonates with a few, hey, that’ll do! I am a wife to Justin, and mother to Maggie, John, Luke, Sophie, Sam, and soon to be adopted #CodenameCharlie. We are also active in foster care and currently have a baby girl with us we refer to as #joybaby!
My husband (Isn’t he gorgeous!) Justin and I have a ranch near our home and we love to travel and “just be.” I have a Master’s Degree in Education, Counseling, and Human Development, but don’t let that fool you, I am not sure how I pulled that off. I also have an undergraduate degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (yeah, Home Ec.). I can cook anything, but don’t ask me to sew.So since this journey began I have been featured on numerous occasions on foreverymom.com and several other syndications sites including scarymommy.com and mamalode.com. Recently I joined the ranks with my friend and fellow author Kelly Balarie as a contributor on Kelly’s blog purposefulfaith.com.
Basically, you only have to read a couple of my blog posts to get the gist. It is pretty cut and dry. I love my husband and my kids, I am afraid of flying, my Xanax is on automatic refill, I am addicted to Jesus, Facebook, blogging, and babies. I love to travel and hang at my parents’ lake house outside of Houston, Texas.My dad is my #1 fan. My husband and sons don’t read my blog because they are dyslexic and are waiting for it to come out on audio. I have run the gamut in trying to raise perfect humans and I am proud to say… I failed. They are imperfectly wonderful! I am a Christian who tends to get snarky. I am anti-Jesus fish because I am a lousy driver, so I don’t think He wants me to advertise on my 12 passenger van for Him. And I have decided my political affiliation is Conservative, Liberal, Socialist. I have my own ticket.
I love sharing the stories that take place in these halls where I fully embrace the Lord’s presence… He wanders around, stepping in juice puddles and stepping over laundry. I love Him, but more, I like Him. I also believe the GOOD NEWS is just Jesus. I am not here to explain Him to you. He wants to know you – but that is between you and Him. I tell tales of my adventures with Him, as He is mine… I would love to hear how you know Him. And you can always connect with me on Facebook or on my contact page.
I also enjoy speaking (in general) and to MOPS and women’s groups. I am currently working on my second manuscript, but I have two fiction ones… they are on the back burner. I aspire to eventually hang out with Nora Roberts and drink cosmos. But don’t tell anyone that.
Given the opportunity, I hope to continue to write about Jesus and the lunacy in my life. I am honored you stopped by here. May your floors be sticky and your calling ordained! Love, Jami
