Why I Write

To stay sane? That might be the most honest answer.

But there is so much more to it than that.

I’m a writer…it’ s what I do.

If not on a blog or paper or in my journal, it’s in my head.

I’m constantly formulating what I’ll write about next.

That’s why I was beyond thrilled when my husband agreed to a separation this past week…in the blogging world, anyway.

For the past six years we have kept a blog together, Schroeder Scribblings. It is almost entirely devoted to the five years we spent in Indonesia and most recently, our transition back to the States.

I love it…it’s great, and if you want to know more about us than you ever dreamed possible, head on over there and check it out.

But it’ s time for me to have my own space.

You see, I’m on this journey. It’s an interesting one. First and most importantly, I’m figuring out what it’s like to be a mommy… at age 32.

I’m still working on being the best wife I can be to my amazing husband.

I still desire to make something of my life…yet be content with whatever that “something” is. I’m still transitioning back from five years spent in a developing country…hence, it is impossible for my life to ever be what it was before. And in the middle of this journey, my husband and I are more actively than ever before evaluating our relationship with God and what it truly is to be a follower of Christ.

We are learning so much… so much that I think I could already write a book about it.


I love the life I’ ve been given.

It doesn’t look at all like what I pictured ten years ago, but that’s ok. It’ s even better.

And I want to write about it.

Thanks for visiting…and I hope you’ll come back, kick off your shoes, and stay awhile.

Going barefoot is the best.
