I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in mathematics and did two years of graduate work in the same field before settling down to keep house and raise children. When folks accuse me of “wasting” my degree, I simply tell them I’ve used it to “stay home and multiply”
It also comes in handy when teaching calculus to our high schoolers. We’ve homeschooled all our children since the beginning and have graduated five of the twelve now (When Joseph graduates in May, I’ll be halfway done!).
When I’m not spending time with my husband or teaching our kids, I like to make scrapbooks, to read (and write) good books, to indulge in a wide variety of handcrafts, and to occasionally jog around the block. In addition to blogging at this website on the topics of education, organization, housekeeping, and family fun, I can also be found at my other blog, Loving Life at Home, where I mainly write about marriage, motherhood, and feminism. If you’d like to read more, check out my books.

A Few of My Music Videos:
And when I’m not singing hymns, I like to make up my own lyrics to popular tunes, such as these:
