Introduction

Well, I am very new here and have no idea where to begin. But I thought I'd start with two very important things to me.  My faith, Orthodox Christianity, and homeschooling.

I converted to Orthodoxy approximately 7 years ago. It is by far the most important decision I have ever made in my life.  Orthodoxy has changed my life.....all for the better.  I have always been christian, but I was born into a Roman Catholic family and followed that faith from a young age to just a year or so before converting to Orthodoxy.  The story of how I got there is a long one....a good post that I'll save for another day.

The second important thing is my children and how I homeschool them.  I have homeschooled my children for the past 5 and a half years.  Homeschooling has also changed my life.  My family has become so much closer in the years since beginning this adventure.  Once started, I was sorry I hadn't homeschooled from the beginning!  But now God has provided us with a third child to do just that!

Well- it's brief....but it's a beginning....and I guess that's why I started this!

    Welcome. I'm impressed that you have several manuscripts finished for children's books. I graduated from a children's writing class in December and am taking an adult class, but have been afraid to make submissions. Substitute teaching is my day job and because my three children have grown into adults I come home and spend nights and weekends obsessed with writing and reading. I read about writing and read for enjoyment and read to study how successful authors do it.

    This is a great time for you to be inspired by your children while they are still children.

    Good blogging.

      I saw that you also took classes from the Institute of Children's Literature. I took a couple classes from them several years ago. I also went to several conferences held by SCBWI and they were very helpful and encouraging. My writing stopped when I got pregnent. Homeschooling, cooking from scratch and a toddler take up to much time right now, but I hope to slowly start back up soon. Thank you for your comments and support! I wish you well with your own writing!
