Hello! If you’re here, that means you’ve been redirected from an old blog (www.paintingwithpicasso.blogspot.com or www.buildingonjoy.blogspot.com), or you’ve joined me very recently. I’ve combined my two previous blogs – one focused on special needs and one focused on finding joy – into one blog that I’m hoping will allow me some opportunity to blog a little more broadly, yet keep focused on my own little corner of the world. So – WELCOME!
A little about me – I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, church-goer, joy-seeker, encouragement-giver, laughter-lover, homeschooling mother, coffee-drinker, piano-player, new knitter who loves spending time with family and friends. You can check out the About Me tab over on the right hand side to learn a little more.
I am a special education teacher by trade, which comes in helpful with our son who has some special needs. God was gracious that way! I firmly believe that everyone can learn, but that we often have to figure out specifically how to help someone learn. Not just that, but I believe that everyone has the capacity to understand who God is and that He loves them – regardless of race, gender or mental capacity.
I’ll be updating the blog over the next few days. I hope to be able to start blogging regularly again, next week. There’s a steep learning curve, having switched the blog to a new platform, so please understand that I’m climbing up that curve as best I can. It’s no coincidence that I just got hooked up with a great group of women who blog – a great source of help for all my questions!
So – welcome, whether you’re new here, or have migrated over from the other blogs. This is home now and I’m glad to share this journey with you!
