This section used to be really stale. The typical biographical description. You know…my name is and I have accomplished such-and-such…and other such ramblings. I don’t really consider myself to be stale. Not that I’m an outwardly vivacious person by any stretch of the imagination. But if you read my blog enough, you’ll catch a bit of wit and humor here and there.
So with that, my name is Stephanie (here’s where the stale stuff creeps in). I used to work as an independent contractor for We Do Web Content. Basically, that means I wrote content for websites. And yes, believe it or not, I actually got paid to work from home! But after more than four blissful years of that, found myself back in the outside world. I’m now working as a secretary for my city’s school district.
I also used to be a professional blogger for Families . I dabbled in a variety of topics but my favorite was writing about teenagers. While many moms do better in the younger years of raising children, I have found the teen years to be the most enjoyable. Despite the chaos, challenges and all the other good stuff that accompanies this stage.
In addition to this blog, I can also be found sharing Real Inspiration to Real Writers. Writing is my second passion (in case you didn’t figure it out–being a mom is my first). I have other published works and teaching experience. This includes an online course I wrote that is now used in a correctional institution’s character-based program, creative writing classes with children and teens, writing a quarterly devotional for the Women’s Ministry Department of my church, co-leading an online Bible study, co-teaching a “Moms in Prayer” group and leading a Bible study called “Women of the Word.”
This probably sounds all super spiritual and stuff. But I’m really a mess in the hands of a Savior who is determined to make something beautiful out of me. That includes as a wife and mom to my three children (ages 20, 17 and 15).
So hopefully I haven’t scared you off. I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and would love for you to become a regular subscriber. Oh, and don’t hesitate to pass this along to someone else!
