Who I am:
If you asked me what I wanted to do when I “grew up” at age 16 (in 1999/2000), I would have told you, “A housewife,” in which you’d laugh at me as I’d look at you completely serious. I married my high school sweetheart Rob in 2004. I am a housewife and homeschooling mom of our two sons. I am a woman who longs to see the oppressed come through restored and renewed! I believe in living each day with purpose.
What I do:
I am a Christian Anabaptist (Mennonite). I am the resources adviser and social media/blogger/newsletter writer for Justice Network; a New Jersey anti-human trafficking organization that spreads awareness and creates events to partner with various organizations around the world as well as promote fair trade and ethically created jobs.
Our family has been on a road to minimalism to lead a simple life. Having needs over wants is important to us. We don’t want to live in excess, believe in small home living, are doing less expense living with more hands-on tasks, spend more time as a family learning about life and doing fun (and cheap/free) things together, and help meet the needs of others with the extra money we save.
