About

This is who I am.

I am a Mother. Four little girls call me “Mommy,” and I can’t imagine life any other way, and hey, without them my blogging material would be quite slim.

I am a Treasure Hunter.  I hold a degree in Classical & Near Eastern Archaeology. Yet, I learned that I loved people more than I loved dead civilizations and I became a missionary instead. Archaeology did, however, take me all over the world. I’ve traveled by plane, ship, boat, bus, taxi and camel-drawn cart and experienced enough adventure for two lifetimes. These days I don’t venture too far from home but I will always be a Treasure Hunter, that illusive beach shell and the local yard sale treasures are always waiting to be discovered. And once in a while, in a magical moment of inspiration, I even find treasure in a string of words.

I am a Survivor. That may be a tale for another day.

This is who I am. I am all these things and more.

I am one who writes.  I write with no agenda. I write simply, and for no other reason than I am compelled to write. I write because I am compelled. I write with the hope that something I have written would cause my Reader to depart from this silly little blog with a smile on their face. I write to touch a chord in a Reader’s heart and to give hope to those who have little or none. I write to bring light to the dark places.

I am one who writes because my life has already been written by the Hand of the Creator and I hope that somewhere in the midst of these feeble written (often ridiculous) words, He would be visible to those with eyes to see.

I have no goal or prize in sight, I write simply to write and display to the world my Clothing of Joy.

  1. Rebecca, I just found your blog this morning and have spent the last few minutes reading posts, laughing, and “liking” every single one. I’m a mom of 3 girls and I look forward to reading many, many more of your posts. Laughter is the BEST medicine and as a mom, sometimes it’s the only thing that keep me sane! 🙂

  2. This might seem odd because I’m not your typical demographic (a 19 year-old college student) but I stumbled upon your blog and found it very inspiring and uplifting. I want to nominate you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You deserve it! You can find the details here: http://marysaverageadventures.wordpress.com/2014/06/15/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/ . I know the rules or whatever say that you should follow me, but don’t feel pressured to! I probably don’t post anything that interests you but I just think you deserve this!

  3. Today you stopped by my blog and I’m so glad because your “like” on my recent post brought me hear. As a single mom of one for a mere few years back in the day, I am awed by your ability to single parent four children! God has indeed made you unique and special. Thanks for visiting me today.
