About me

  • I'm married to my high school sweetheart, but I always tell high school sweethearts they will not get married to each other.
  • My husband is the funniest person I know.  He makes my post-pregnant body laugh way too hard.
  • Our daughters (born in July 2011 and August 2013) are more than worth the effects of that post-pregnant body.
  • I have two great older brothers, five nieces and nephews, and awesome sister-in-laws (sisters-in-law).  My older brothers caused me to cry a lot (in good fun, I'm sure), but now it takes a lot to make me cry.  I thank them for that.
  • Before I went to my first dance with my (now) husband, my brothers and dad threatened him.  I also thank them for that. And for the record, he said it was worth it.
  • Number one word my students use to describe me.  Awkward.  I wear it as a badge of pride.
  • I love bullet point lists. 
  • Numbered lists bother me - too mathematical.  I try to avoid math at all costs.
  • I grew up thinking everyone loved the church.  Then I realized that not everyone does.  Now my goal is to do my part to help make the church the healthy and holy place that people will love - because Jesus is there.
  • Put twenty teenagers in my living room and my day is made.  Put twenty third graders in my living room and I'm locking myself in the bathroom. 
  • I never knew how much I loved babies until I had one.  I'm that creepy person who won't stop staring at you until you let me hold your child. 
  • I refer to John Wesley as J-Dub.  I don't think he'd mind.
  • Why "delightful days"?  Because in everything, I'm trying to seek the delight in our moments, the joy in every day.
