Introduction You can read more about me in my Jan 12 2009 post on this blog, but here's the really short version. I'm a wife and mother. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Dana, for over 24 years. We have three beautiful daughters that are 20, 17, and 13. We live in Iowa now, but are originally from California and have lived in Colorado and Japan. I have written for The Little Way, an email list for Catholic wives and mothers, since 2000. The Little Way is just a way of consecrating the ordinary things we do in our vocations and recognizing that our responsibilities as wives and mothers are our path to sanctity. When we aren't at home you are likely to find us on a dance floor someplace, square dancing, round dancing or ballroom dancing. Most recently, I have been on a journey for better health and weight loss. It's been quite a trip! Currently, I'm still homescholing my 16 year old, just finished my BS in Sports and Health Science and I am Secretary of Pastoral Ministries at two parishes in Cedar Rapids.
