I’m Mary, a banjo-playing pastor’s wife and mom of five. I love my church, my city, and my people. My heart beats for foster care and adoption. I’m list keeper of books, podcasts, and questions. I stumbled into homeschooling, and I’m making it up as I go along.
I seek to follow Jesus, love well, serve others, read good books, and watch my kids play outside. I grew up with the Indigo Girls and 90’s hip-hop. I dance like Beyonce and hate long-distance running. I love stories with too many details and somehow remember everybody’s name.
I have a fondness for throw pillows and candles. My husband makes me laugh more than anyone on the planet. A big, brown dog is the heart of our home and we’re still hoping the white one doesn’t turn out to be a lemon. I prefer sitting on the dock in the Lowcountry than a porch in the mountains. My kids drive me crazy at times, but I love them to depths I didn’t know possible.
I’m simply a work in progress.
This is just a glimpse into my nook and corner of the world.
