Day 22 of Advent: Simple Moments

“The true joys in life are not the grand gestures, but the simple moments.”

As I attempt to get through the hectic days before Christmas, I am really trying to keep that wonderful phrase in mind.

Whether it is having a cup of tea with my somewhat forgetful and elderly mother, or my teenage son wanting to have a chat with me as I am trying to get dinner on the table.

Just like the surroundings of Jesus’ birth were simple for such a grand moment in history, I want to enjoy these simple but grand moments in life.

As we celebrate the 4th Sunday in Advent where we light the Candle of Love, may you cherish the love God has made possible.

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
