Hello world. Welcome to the blog of a small town Mississippi girl still adjusting to life in the big city.  Like many of you, I wear many hats (wife, mother, librarian, writer, to name a few) All of my favorite things combine faith, family and fun.

I have chosen the tag line “finding my way: living my purpose because I am “directionally-challenged”, which is a kind way of saying I do not have a good sense of direction and I get lost easily.  However, with the aid of GPS, I have found navigating a little bit easier.   I think this is a perfect analogy to our Christian journey in that even those with a good sense of direction need guidance.  I wanted to write a book entitled Directionally Challenge but Traviis Collins beat me to it many years ago.  It is a great book, by the way, but I digress.  I have since begun a book on spiritual direction (with a different title, of course) and you will find a little bit of the introduction to that book in my first post.  Please make yourself at home, take a look around and visit often.  I hope you will choose to follow me and share with anyone who needs a little encouragement or inspiration to follow the path laid out in Isaiah 30:21.
