Hey folks!

I’m Gloryanna and I’m one of those crazy rad folks who tried to convince teenagers that reading is cool. I taught middle school lit for six years to a bunch of eighth graders until I decided to take on a new line of work–being a stay at home mom.  I’ve been with my best friend who is now my husband for over 10 years and I’m pretty sure he’s an eighth grader at heart. He makes me feel at home by not taking myself too seriously and reminding me to laugh more in life. We have one baby monster with the cutest smile. Ever. Did you not see the pic above? Hopefully, we’ll add to our clan down the road sometime. Why not keep the crazy going?

I like to share stories. I like to hear stories. Stories of triumph. Stories that make me pee my pants from laughing so hard (and from having a baby. Seriously?!?! Who can still hold their pee after that?). I need stories that make me question my path in life. I think most of us connect with others when we hear where they’ve been. Where they’re going.

I’m new in this season of life–being a stay at home mom and being a brand new parent and continuing to be a loving wife and servant to others in the midst of it all. No matter what season we’re going through, God will reach out to us and remind us how much we are loved. His love is constant, and that is something that doesn’t change with the seasons.

My writing is here and there on the web, including The Huffington Post, Mamalode, BlogHer and Her View From Home.  To see all my published work, click here.

I hope that the variety of blog posts here will encourage you, make you pee your pants, maybe inform you, and fingers crossed, help you in some way. Welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere. I would love to hear from you! I’ll be stalking the comments section to hear from you.
