I was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut. I grew up attending church with my family. In seventh grade my husband and I were introduced by mutual friends, and quickly became good friends as we discovered our birthdays were only hours apart. Not to mention, we were born in the same hospital, delivered by the same doctor. Yes, I’m older, and constantly reminded of it! We continued as friends through high school and college, as he called me every year on my birthday. I knew then that something was special about our relationship. We married in 2000 and soon began our family, first Alexis and then Daniel, a couple of years later.
We are now raising our children in the same town where I grew up, and they both attend the same school where we first met. We are blessed to be very close to extended family.
After receiving my degree in education, I began a teaching career, took time off to start a family, and only recently went back to teaching. Currently I teach preschool in a nearby town.
I was happily working, raising my children in the Lord, and enjoying my life when I was inspired by Lexie to write a book. It took four years to complete my first book, The Longest New York Minute, which began a second career for me. Now God has opened a new door for me, and for the past couple of years I’ve been speaking at schools to students about writing and my experience, as well as at churches and other organizations on how God has been using me. I am also currently working on three other books, all geared for young adults.
Only recently did God speak to me about starting this blog. While it’s been on my mind for years to start blogging, I never quite figured out what I wanted to write about. This summer God revealed to me in a dream what He wanted me to do, and so whatareyouthinking247 was created!
Thanks for visiting, I hope you are inspired!
I’d love to hear from you.
