About Me

Here at The Mustard Seed, you’ll find the occasional poem, home decor tip, and maybe even a recipe or two.

And pictures.  Lots and lots of pictures.  You’re getting me, because let’s face it, that’s all I’ve got.

I feel overwhelmed writing this.  What do you people want from me?

I asked this very question to my Facebook followers, and because they’re amazing- they answered….with questions.  Below are a few that will perhaps give you a little bit more of an idea of who I am.  Enjoy, and I look forward to meeting you!   And hey, don’t be a stranger!!!  Join my Facebook page here.

Q & A

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I’d change how self-conscious I am.  I want to be more confident.  I’m basically faking it until I make it.

If you could move anywhere in the world where would it be?

Northwest Arkansas.  One word- FAMILY – I left home back in October 2000 with my husband of five months.  Duty called and we packed and moved.  A couple of times.

Other places I’d love to move to?

New England.  Maine (hey hey!  We just did!!), Massachusetts, or upstate New York.  Who are we kidding.  Anywhere in New England.  Four seasons.  Quaint towns. Oh be still my heart!

Why is your blog called The Mustard Seed? 

The mustard seed is just a tiny seed, but when planted, and nourished it grows and becomes something amazing.  Every dream starts with something small- a thought, an idea, a notion.  It can either be nourished, watered, and fed so that it can grow or it can be neglected and never flourish.

The first thing our dreams need in order to be planted is faith.  Faith that it can succeed.  I started this blog, after years of debating within myself “Can I do it?  What if I fail?  Is this stupid?”

Then there’s action.  Putting your money where your mouth is.  Walking in faith.

“……I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

I don’t know where this will all lead.  I have no idea what the future holds for me.  None of us do. But I’m going to take this small idea, plant it and see.  And that my friends is why this blog is called The Mustard Seed.
