I'm a 5th generation Oklahoma Panhandle Pioneer, born with one foot in the oil patch and the other in agriculture. I help today's pioneer families in homemaking, homesteading, & homeschooling as they navigate the Dust Storms of life with God's Divine help.
- Faith - Growing a Faith Mindset - Love YHWH, following HIM with all my being while soaking in His inspiration
- Consistency - Creating Change with Consistency - Love others with consideration of their time and value, being present in the moment with flexibility, durability, and adaptability
- Resilience - Developing Sustainable Resiliency - Care for self and imaginative creativity while keeping a sustainable lifestyle, knowing where I am in this moment is sufficient
- Legend - Creating a new narrative based on the romance of adventure with a Biblical cipher for truth - the wording or caption on a map or diagram explaining the symbols used
Organization – I'm an INTJ & Enneagram 5 (wing 6/4) personality type. Evaluation and efficiency are part of my wiring.
Creativity – I enjoy designing appealing logos, fliers, ads and social media images for businesses and events.
Multitasking – I thrive working under deadlines and stressful situations.
Flexibility – I work well alone or with others under a variety of circumstances.
Resourceful – I excel at working with limited resources.
Punctuality – I value the time of others and tend to be early for appointments.
Strategic - I analyze, research, plan and prepare for every possible contingency.
I love learning new things and thrive on seminars, conferences and workshops both online and in person.
Art: Calligraphy, Pencil Portraits, oil and acrylic painting and photo editing.
Commercial Design: 30+ years designing for businesses, churches, individuals, and homeschools.
Creative Writing & Web Design: I've had a web page or blog ever since internet has been available in our area. I have experience with Wordpress, Weebly, The Printshop, Picmonkey Photoshop, InDesign and more.
Sewing & Embroidery: I learned to sew on an old treadle and have owned and operated a machine with an embroidery unit attachment since 2000. I love tweaking old patterns and designing new variations for clothing, costumes, quilts and household items.
Management & Organization: Managing a home, business, ministry, and homeschooling six children all at the same time should speak for itself. Our happy family and debt-free business is evidence of successful management skills I have learned through the years. But I couldn't do it without Divine help.
I truly consider over 30 years of marriage, the consistent home training and education of 6 children to have a personal relationship with their Creator to be the greatest accomplishments of my life. The initiative of our graduates has been gratifying. One never really knows the impact they've made until they see others follow their example. Everything else I accomplish is bonus.
