First and foremost, I am a happy wife and mother. God has blessed me with a beautiful family. I am from the United States, but I met my husband, who is Lebanese, after moving to the Middle East. We now live in Erbil, Iraq with our two wonderful sons, Charbel, named after St. Charbel, patron of Lebanon, and Paul.
In addition to being wife and mother, I am a homemaker and educator. When, after being with the kids and my husband, I have extra time that I don’t need for school duties, I enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting, playing the piano and writing. Note that cleaning is not on the list; however, I sometimes do that too!
In addition to faith and family, I’m interested in theology, philosophy, history, culture, and most other subjects. After marrying my husband, a cinematographer by profession, I added movie analysis to my list of likes as well. So, there’s far more I’m interested in reading, writing and talking about than I ever have time to get around to!
My husband works at the same school I do as Head of the Media Department. He also dedicates as much time as possible to a family mission project we’ve started, OneCatholic. OneCatholic is a network of Catholic websites seeking to unite Catholics and provide information about the universal Church and the individual rites within the Church, through the mass media. If God blesses our efforts, we hope to make OneCatholic an online Catholic TV station in the future. To get a feel for OneCatholic and find links to the various sites in the network, visit OneCatholic at www.onecatholic.net.
Our sons works fulltime on learning about life. They are just a year apart, and both love to play, eat, cuddle and explore the world.
For now, that’s our family. I look forward to editing this page in the future as we grow, change and learn.
