What do you do when you’re a busy mom, aspiring novelist, tutor and homeschool mom? Why, add one more thing and blog! I’m a creative and often feel that I have things threatening to burst out of seams. I write, create and teach from a seemingly- every-growing optimism. I say my 30s is by far my favorite decade because now I’ve been witness to so many miracles, seen how many people have transformed and remained transformed. My name, Renee, really does mean “reborn.” I believe everything can be transformed and revived. Absolutely, Everything. Anything. I serve a Jesus whom I’ve learned about and served most of my life–but my understanding of His depths and the much bigger picture of what it means to follow Him make me feel, after 3 decades of following, that this life is so exciting–much more than I ever knew ten or even five years ago! So if anything I write or share here resonates with you, enjoy and come again! I may share everything from drawing tutorials to quiet musings of family life while I live my dreams of raising a family and finishing my first novel entitled Still House, a multi-generational story of two couples and the house that reveals their secrets, challenging each member of the family to choose whether they are merely the selves of their pasts–or if they will choose different futures.
