— St. Teresa of Avila —

“We always find that those who walked closest to Christ were those who had to bear the greatest trials.”

Vintage Pictures

Many of the posts I’ve written over the last decade feature vintage pictures of Generation X. I love old photographs. And, I love this quote:

If pictures have anything important to say to future generations, it’s this: I was here. I existed. I was young, I was happy, and someone cared enough about me in this world to take my picture.

Faith Posts

I was raised Nazarene and love my Nazarene heritage and the church that first taught me about Jesus. It will always be a part of me and I will always love and cherish it.

After attending the Catholic church with my husband and children for many years, I’ve decided to join. Join me on my journey as I become a 50-year-old convert.

Generation X

I remember hearing the name Generation X for the first time in 1991 or 1992. I was so excited to learn about my generation! It has been a privilege to blog for and about Gen-Xers for many years.

Motherhood is the greatest adventure of my life! To my husband and three beautiful children: You are my greatest blessings.

I am also a proud sister to my brother and two sisters. We lost our mom over Christmas 2017. I miss her so much. I’m glad I have my siblings to help me through it.
