I have been married for fifteen years and we are the parents of one daughter and three sons. When not scrapbooking or writing, I love to be doing anything outdoors! I also enjoy volunteering in my church's women and youth organizations. As a young mother and wife, I found I could combine my passion for scrapbooking with needs: to meet other women who loved scrapbooking, earn extra money, and stay home with my children. I began as a consultant with a new direct selling company and worked my way up to become a top sales/recruiting leader. Although the businesses struggled and I no longer work in direct sales I still am very involved in the industry.
I have been scrapbooking for over 15 years now. I have kept a journal since the age of 9. Journaling and recording my life has always been a talent that I am thankful for. Some of my ancestors passed their life stories in journals and I want my albums to show my future generations how faith affected my life. Several years ago when my third child was born and my oldest was only 4 years old I realized I needed to change the way I scrapbooked. At the rate I was going trying to record every move, every activity, they would need a U-Haul to move out just their albums. I had created over 22 albums in four years. I wanted my albums to record more about me, more about my feelings and more about our blessings. To be life lessons and something more to show my future prosperity my love for live, family and our Lord.
Then I was introduced to Faithbooking, the style I first saw was just including a scripture on each layout. Which is great for most but just as we are all created differently in our own way I saw it as something more. I wanted to create layouts that show gratitude, blessings, trails, all of those life moments that build your own personal testimony. Believing all along that it is for every religion or faith. It is a record of our journey in this life our personal recorded of each person's ever growing faith and authentication. What better way share yourself for your loved ones when they can know that my mother, grandmother, family member also struggled with this at one time or can read the record of a blessing in your life to see the same blessing in their own lives. A legacy of how God is involved in each of our everyday lives.
Because my passion is teaching and sharing, I am persistently pursuing my dreams of helping others create meaningful albums and to share their legacy through scrapbooking. I continuing to submit my work to the magazines, contests and teaching classes at my home. I love scrapbooking and feel that everyone deserves to be the star of their own book! I see Faithbooking as a creative way leave a meaningful legacy.
