So, I won a little writing contest.  Very small, but still, very gratifying, both because I won, and because of the content of the story.  I want to post a link here, but… the winning entry contains my last name, which, heretofore, I’ve not published on my blog.  So, I won’t post a link…  If you’re my friend in real life, you can see it on my Facebook page, but I guess I won’t post it here.  Bummer.  (E-mail me, though, if you’d like to read the winning entry, and at my discretion, I’ll send you a link.)

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. I found you via the other website. Don’t worry…your last name is safe with me! I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your story…and believing in yourself, and the power of walking and prayer to get things moving along.

    I also wanted to mention my site where we explore the realities of birth, babies and beyond. We are always on the lookout for birth stories, so if you’d like to share your others with us, we’d love to have them. Our aim is to be a resource for expectant moms as they begin their journeys to motherhood and a point of catharsis for those of us who are somewhere further down the road. Hope you’ll check us out.

    • Thanks, Meagan! It’ll be our secret. 😉 Thanks for the visit and comment, and I will check out your site!!

      Actually, I think just about anyone can find out just about anything online, if they know how to look… but as a matter of current policy, I’m keeping my last name “private.”
