Hey ya’ll. I’m CJ. I’ve been married for six years to my best friend Jared. We have two beautiful, vibrant children: four-year-old Brookie and one-year-old Little Man. Our lives are crazy because we are silly. I hate clutter, love organization, and have a love/hate relationship with all electronics. Some days I feel like I have everything together as a mom, but most days I feel overworked, exhausted, and stressed. I have dreams of a future career in writing contemporary Christian romance and so I am immersed in my own little fictitious world. But despite all that, my relationship with Christ gives me everything I need to survive life’s wacky moments. We’d love to include you as we share our moments dipped in ink.

Howdy! I am the oldest weird member of the family. The children and I take turns being weird, while CJ is the mostly sane one. We are a very quirky family. I am a Clinical Research Professional specializing in pharmaceutical clinical trials. In other words, a science nerd with a mathematical flare. My hobbies include: quality time with family, stamp and coin collecting, art, and putting together model airplanes/automobiles. We enjoy family devotions and learning about God. I’m the technical assistant for the blog and will share occasional quirky moments with you. As we jot down our goings-on, please enjoy our moments dipped in ink.
For the most part, I try to follow a schedule so you know what to expect. However, I am a wife, mom, and aspiring author so at times I may fall behind. Here’s the schedule I strive to follow.
Monday (1st and 3rd): A Day in a Mom’s Life
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday w/ Christian Fiction (on break until August 15th)
Wednesday: Work-in-Progress Wednesday
Thursday (2nd and 4th): Writing
Friday: First Line Friday
Author interviews, book reviews, and book spotlights will be on the date that I determine with the author, publisher, or publicity group.
