Welcome to March… and my blog, Crafting Hope by Heidi Mull.
For those of you who already know me, this post is an opportunity to get to know me better. I am currently enrolled in a blogging class to help me grow and improve. This is an assignment for that class.
For those who don’t know me… please allow me to introduce myself.
I am a forty-six year old, wife of 20 years, mother of 5 and “Gi Gi” to one grandson. I was raised in the same town I live in now but I went away to college and have lived on both coasts. I have a BS degree in Psychology with a minor in Social Work. I have spent the last 17+ years homeschooling my kids and being Mom.
In my life I have
worked in retail,
delivered singing telegrams,
worked as a case manager,
sang in church,
taught other children from ages 2 to 15,
worked at the US post office,
attempted various in-home sales businesses,
written poetry and short stories (unpublished to date).
I am caring for a husband who was assaulted and still suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury. I was primary caregiver for my Mom as she fought ovarian cancer and lost. I have witnessed several births and been present at as many deaths. There is much more I could list but all this is to say that I have lived.
I have sought for and fought for hope throughout my life. I learned, at an early age, the joy that comes from creating or crafting…anything. In these times of creating, I have developed a timeless connection to the Creator and the creative force inside of each of us. As a result, I have found that hope can arise out of chaos and pain. And that having a hope-full life is part journey–part process but definitely intentional. I invite you to look back at my previous post called “Let’s get started” to get an idea of how crafting hope works. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you as we join together in this journey of crafting hope.
Heidi Mull, who I am and why I am here.
