Writing plays a huge role in my personal life. I am a firm believer in constantly taking notes on things that need to be remembered, things I like or want to look more into, and the way I feel about issues close to my heart. I have journals all of the house, car, and my purse so that I always have something, somewhere to write on. Writing helps me release emotions in a positive way and helps calm some of the stress I deal with. Words are powerful and timeless in my opinion, and I want my children to be able to read my words and gain their own knowledge and understanding through it.
