About Me

For the past two years I have enjoyed allowing my crafty-creative side blossom. I've found an outlet for the part brain that needs to reinvent, interpret and express itself artistically. But long before I sewed my first stitch or painted my first stroke, I was a writer. I have spiral notebooks full of stories I wrote dating back to first grade. I majored in English Communications in college and aspired to become a writer. I even had one paid published piece my Sophomore year of college when a short story of mine appeared in the book, Stories for A Woman’s Heart: The Second Collection (a Chicken Soup for the Soul kind of book). But as time went on and my life became busier, those dreams of writing stayed that—something in my head and not on paper.

After stepping down from my job as the Children's Ministries Director at our church and staying home, I started to pray about how the writer side of me may be able to make a regular appearance. And not just in craft and sewing tutorials, but in story telling, devotional thoughts and eloquent journaling. A blog seemed the logical choice. But I didn’t want it to just be random. Or full of venting. Or unread. Or for my own glory. I wanted it to be something with a purpose that could make a difference in the lives and minds of others. So I prayed some more. And I feel like I’ve been given a story to tell. Satisfied with Adequate will be about my journey as a wife and mom while still having my own identity in the midst of those two roles. My faith will play a key role in the posts.

And when I'm not typing away on my laptop or sewing away in my crafty space, I'm having a blast with my two-year-old son (probably watching way too much TV), relaxing with my husband (again, probably watching way too much TV), getting lost in a book or making treats in my kitchen... all the while feeling a new life kicking within my belly and looking forward to its arrival in October.
