My form confirmed this on the day of my birth and continues to do so each day.
I am a wife.
From the moment I fastened the final clasp at the top of my white satin dress and for the remainder of my days, this is a choice I make daily.
I am a mother.
September 16, 2001 was the day my identity shifted from creation to creator, consumer to provider, child to parent.
I am a follower of Christ.
It is what I was called and created to be and become. I am found most effective as I embrace all of the facets that God has crafted into my being.
I am a counselor*.
I share what I have gleaned, encourage, affirm and redirect all who seek my counsel to the One True Counselor.
I am a writer.
A precious gift presented to me by my Father. One that I've left packed away and protected for far too long. Gifts left in their packaging may never have wear and tear, but they will never be truly enjoyed by anyone.
I am determined that my life will be a legacy of all of the things God has called me to do.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10
*Please note that I am not a certified counselor, nor am I professing to be such.
