I am an over 50-year-old married woman who works outside the home as a licensed clinical social worker in a public agency.  I have three wonderful adult children and two amazing son-in-laws.  I have four perfect grandchildren.  My husband and I live in a rural, farming community on several acres of land with our two horses, cat, and dog.  I have much experience in what does not work, in broken vows, and in heart-breaks that never completely heal.  I am discovering what does work and will be sharing these insights, among other things, with you.  It has taken me years to feel some level of peace within myself and my life in spite of the mistakes I’ve made.  I am a believer in Jesus Christ and I will be the first to say I am not a good disciple.  I respect the free will of all people regardless of their faith, religion, or lack thereof.  I do not think it’s my place to change anyone’s mind about what they believe although I will express my own views whether you agree or not.  Ultimately I hope to help hurting people in a hurtful world with a little shared wisdom and a lot of encouragement.
