My name is Heather and I’m in my first year of empty nesting. I have children who are grown and little awesome grandchildren. I live in rural Virginia and am retired from teaching elementary grades. I am passionate about my faith, family, friends, and my calling both in teaching and in writing. I would like my writing to provoke a thought, an image, a memory, a desire, a hope, a wish, a dream. I would just like to be a credible witness to the world around me and how my God is ever-present and ever-loving in that world.
