Welcome to Salt and Light!

I'm a 36 year old married (clumsy) Christ follower. I'm a teacher and I'm a mom to two little gals (3 and 5)...

and a fur baby named Lola. 

BABE. Couldn't help it.
 I love eating all the food, travelling and being outside.

I also love seeing people confidently express themselves, whether it's through words, style, tattoo art or cross stitch. I want to encourage women to explore the gifts God's given them and feel a sense of belonging and empowerment in their lives. 
That's one of the reasons I loved being a high school French and English high school teacher. Coincidentally, you know who else is a teacher???
Yup. Deena We're both on hiatus. Photo by Lovely Roots Photography
I've recently "retired" from that role but once a teacher, always a teacher always an annoying person at the park bossing other people's children.

In addition to the fun here at Salt and Light, I blog over at Grumbling Grace where I write about fails, faith and mom life. I try to keep it as real as possible on the internet and in the grocery store (sorry to the lady in front of me last Tuesday). 
I may become the voice in your head as I do a lot of the written blog posts here at Salt and Light (Rachel will be the actual voice in your head through our podcast). 

Long story short: Welcome! 

I can't wait to see where this community takes us in 2019.
