I’m a writer, a wife and mother. I’m passionate about my personal beliefs, but don’t inflict them on others — unless you ask. I grew up in a rural town with one stoplight and no McDonalds. As kids, we rode our bikes through winding country roads to visit friends. We were gone all day long and our parents never worried. As a parent, I tend to interfere, hover and worry. But, I’m working on it.
