I'm glad you stopped by Home Joys. This is the place I share about my life as a mother, homemaker, and daughter of God.

Our family in July 2018

Since 2008, I've written about the books I've read, sourdough experiments, garden successes, and various everyday events.
Ed and I - July 2018
Yes, he was a head taller than me.

In May of 2017, my husband Ed was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. Two years later, in May 2019, I began the journey of widowhood. I've been so blessed by the support of blog readers through this time.

Blogging changed my life. It built new friendships, taught me new skills, gave me new opportunities, and enriched my life in unexpected ways.
