To describe my life in a small paragraph feels impossible. I could list everything I do: I cook, I clean, I drive, I teach, I write, and I hope to do so for a long time. I could try for what I am: I’m a wife, a mom, a teacher, a writer, a victim, and a champion. But really, all of that seems trite; what I really want you to know is that I’m a woman on a journey through tragedy, through pain, through hope, through family, through faith, and through so much more. I hope you’ll journey with me.
