Me, In Real Life
I am a mom who likes to bake and cook gourmet meals as much as I enjoy negotiating opportunities for my public relations firm clients. I covet time spent with friends as much as I crave downtime in complete, blissful silence. I hear I’m an introverted extravert—whatever that means. Reading a good book in any genre is golden. Oh, and I’m a recovering sneak eater.
More than anything, I love Jesus. I am a Jesus girl. I want to live a life that is acceptable and pleasing to Him. But I guarantee you I’m not too stuffy.
I love my family—all of them, and there are a lot of us.
Fun Facts About Me
Oreo cookies are my weakness.
I have an Instagram account devoted to planning, productivity, and praying.
I detest the taste of chicken (always have).
Over the past 16 years, I’ve lived in Tennessee, Delaware, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.
I wear my glasses so I can hear. (I bet you do too.)
I don’t like to be told what to do. I ordered Fifty Shades of Grey while sitting in church listening to a Pastor rant about why it should not be read. I think I’ve read most banned books.
I’m a feminine woman who can’t style hair. Hey, I can do my own makeup. We can’t be perfect at everything.
The place I write is called “The Data Den of All that is Awesome,” and it goes wherever I go.
…Speaking of Writing
Outside of God and the people I love, words are my passion. Something about how a writer can use words to evoke emotion, entertain and inspire others to act moves me. It drives me so much that I write something daily.
Now, I’m ready and willing to share more than at any other time in my life. I want my words to entertain, encourage, and equip you to build, grow, and live in your purpose.
