About me

Occupation Nanny
Location Pacific NW, United States
Introduction I am a young Christian working/married girl living in the Pacific NW, and am writing this "anonymous" blog to simply share my everyday thoughts, goals, dreams and rants with other women of all ages around the world. Sometimes life gets us down, but we always need to remember that God is in control, and as the song goes, life is "Just a Ride." I am an imperfect human, and can be selfish, thoughtless, and even unkind at times, but I strive to be the wife, teacher, and friend God wants me to be. I don't yet have any children of my own, but until that happy day I am a full-time nanny and (happily) accept that as my current role outside of my home.

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

I'll donate some of the money I make to those who most need it, invest some of it, keep some of it, and just remind myself that lots of odd people have written musicals.... ;o)
