My Writing

I've been on HubPages for a couple years now and really enjoyed myself. I did take a break for awhile, but I'm back now and wanted to update my profile page to reflect that.

I've written on a variety of topics with which I have personal experience such as parenting, homeschooling, self-employment, special needs children and complementary and alternative medicine. Now that I'm actively writing hubs again, I hope to continue with these topics as well as expanding into other areas of personal interest.

About Me

I was born and raised in Nebraska, where I currently live with my four children. From the time of my first child's birth through the fall of 2006, I was a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. I homeschooled my oldest child again for a short time during the '08-'09 school year as we searched for the best educational choice for him. I currently homeschool my two youngest children, one of whom is a special needs child with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (an autism spectrum disorder also known as PDD-NOS), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and other learning challenges. I love having the opportunity to be with my children and see them learning and growing in all aspects of life.

In the fall of 2006, I began a residential cleaning service. In 2009, I began homeschooling my youngest child and it was at that time that I began writing for several online content sites, including HubPages. I currently work online in content creation and various other venues, in addition to providing cleaning services. Whether cleaning houses or writing articles, I love having the freedom of being self-employed. Instead of answering to someone else, I can pursue whatever job interests I choose.

When I'm not spending time on my children or business activities, I enjoy watching movies (psychological-type thrillers are my favorites), and reading books of all genres.

I have dabbled in creating blogs and websites, but don't have anything to share currently. Hopefully that will change in the near future.

Update 7/19/2012: Well, I did just start a website selling different types of Christian items, mainly via Amazon and couple other online affiliate-type setups. The site is www.buychristianstuffonline.com and you're welcome to go check it out if you'd like. I'll warn you though, I just got started on it a couple days ago, so it's not really "ready" yet and still looking a little rough / cheesy.
