When I Grow Up

At Lewis’ end of the year EK program, he said plans to be a football player when he grows up. Yep. I’m pretty sure I have a future 300 pound defensive end living under my roof.  I’ll proudly don the purple and gold and cheer on my little (I mean big) man as he pummels the opposition.

In a funny coincidence, I ran across this doozy from my early elementary years a few days ago. My first grade dreams didn’t quite come true. But I’m not even 40 yet. I’ve still got time, right?

I am a contributor at CT Women (previously known as Today's Christian Woman where I was a regular contributor as well). I blog monthly at and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul, Guideposts, Thriving Family and Creation Illustrated. Cancer made an unwelcome visit in my breast in January 2016, and I am now working on a book about breast reconstruction after having gone through the insane process myself. My incredible husband of 18 years, Corey, is my biggest writing cheerleader and together we are having a ball raising our three growing boys; Carter 15, Owen 14 and Lewis 10.

  1. Are those things spiders? Looks like your brother got all the artistic talent.
    Just kidding love you honey! You can sing for me any time.

    • Those are very obviously all of my screaming fans- not spiders 😉 Maybe I was actually dreaming about your future career. Since you actually do sing, and play the guitar and have piano playing skills that you’ve kept hidden for 14 years.
