Welcome to my blog! My name is Susan. I’ve been happily married to Doug since 1992 and we are blessed parents to teenagers Josh and Julia…as well as a neurotic Bichon Frise named Buddy. I am a native Pittsburgher (and proud Steelers fan!) but I love living in the mountains of New Hampshire. We’ve also lived in CT, RI, and south Florida.
I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. I have a B.A. in English and an M.Ed with a specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling. Before becoming a full time mom, I worked in both a community mental health center in PA and an AIDS Project in CT.
I was a homeschooling mom for 11 years until both kids entered the local high school as freshmen.
I am very active in my local church, where I help lead Bible studies and serve as a mentor for the Mom To Mom program.
I absolutely treasure my friendships. I am a voracious reader and I love hiking, the mountains and the ocean, traveling (especially trips back to my hometown), a good laugh, Cold Stone Creamery, the sound of my kids making music, and my photography classes.
The absolute joy and greatest adventure of my life is knowing Jesus Christ as my Savior. I will be writing from a Christian perspective. Recently, He has been teaching me how to treasure the time I have been given, to celebrate the beautiful gift of life. This blog will allow me a space to document His many and wondrous graces to me.
Life can be hard…but God is good.
Thanks for stopping by!
