About Jamie (& Contact)

See Jamie blogThis family of mine includes a husband, five kids ranging from preschooler to married college grad (plus a daughter-in-law!), and one exceptionally intelligent dog. One child is mine by birth, one by marriage, and three via foster-adoption. {The dog is adopted, too, but she doesn’t know it!}

I do my best thinking with a steaming cup of tea in hand. I write because it’s how I think, how I process thoughts, how I learn from my experiences and re-live the best ones.

My blog serves as a repository for my abundance of words (to save my husband’s sanity!), an informal record of our homeschool, and a place to share my heart as I navigate the blessings and challenges of motherhood, marriage, and faith.

A sampling of my most popular posts:

On marriage: 25 Prayers for My Husband
On parenting: Becoming a Fun Mama
On homemaking: My Recipe Binder
On faith: I’ve seen what living looks like
On adoption: If Someone You Know is Adopting
On personality: How to be Friends with an Introvert

You’ll learn a lot about me and this sometimes-crazy life of mine if you stick around a while. But above all else, I hope you’ll see I’m just a clay pot, utterly useless apart from the treasure within. (2 Corinthians 4:7)
