About Me

179250_10200492565093796_424101713_nBeing a mommy was my childhood dream of who I wanted to be when I grew up, and my runner-up choice was to be a teacher. Well, I became a mother and I have been blessed to be a grandmother of 9 grandchildren. I recently retired as an elementary school teacher, teaching for 27 years, but taking a break in the middle of my career for 15 years to stay home and raise my two sons. I also have a master’s degree in guidance counseling.  Nothing has brought me more joy than being a mother and a grandmother. My last role is that of a pastor’s wife.  My purpose in writing this blog is to give hope and encouragement to other parents and grandparents.   Romans 15:4  tells us “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”

With hope,

Debra Smith
