Welcome to my blog! My name is Pattie, and I've been here for over ten years in this little corner of the web, writing about books and writing. I am a wife and mom, newly-re-employed English teacher, writer, editor, proofreader, daughter, taxi mom, and not-so-secret book hoarder.
My blog's name comes from Nicole Johnson's book Fresh-Brewed Life: A Stirring Invitation to Lift Up Your Soul. I first saw Nicole perform at Wives of Faith in 1999, and her book was instrumental in a spiritual awakening in my heart.
I am a reader and a writer; this blog combines both.
That's not to say that I don't enjoy Georgia. I mean, check out this huge backyard, with a firepit my husband made himself! Pretty awesome.
In the fall of 2016, I'll be re-entering the high school classroom after a dozen year hiatus (other than substitute teaching, which I've done the past four years). Pray for me!
