I think the most beautiful thing about recovery is knowing that I fell apart in the most destructive way imaginable, but by the grace of God, I not only survived, I began to thrive.

At heart, I am a historian. Inspired at a young age by my father, history — reading it, studying it, learning from it — became as much a part of my growth and development as my faith and my family. It wasn’t surprising then, that I became a history teacher.

I left teaching in 2008, but remain the history nerd I’ve always been. Because teaching is also in my DNA, I started writing and sharing my musings through social media and other outlets. Four years ago, I created this website, which is always evolving, but which has provided me with an outlet for my passion.
