A LITTLE PENCIL
And a big mouth. Punctuated by prayer. I'm a freelance writer and contractor for both secular and spiritual organizations. Over the years, I've been a research associate, an autism services aide, an executive director for a non-profit, a fundraiser (friend-raiser), an event planner, and even a chaplain at a mental institution! Yes, it's a little disjointed. But amid all the work, my husband and I raised eight wonderful children. Multi-tasking is my middle name, and I am lean and mean with a budget. I have mastered the art of juggling multiple priorities, and focusing the attention of "small" people on the big picture. So, sure, motherhood might not count much on a resume. But... how else do you become the Queen of the Possible?
