My New Adventure in Life

avatar_doll_1As if I really need more adventures, right?  I mean, really.  I currently volunteer for 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control.  I am a wife.  I am a mother.  I am a small business owner.  I am a backyard farmer.

But there will soon be another title to add to that.  I will be a full time student!

I was being urged to go back to school to broaden my job search options.  As I was talking with the counselor, we came up with teaching, because that is something that I enjoy doing.  But as much as that sounds fun, I really can’t see myself teaching.

I was told to gather information that I would need to start school for a teaching degree.  As I was doing that, I ran across another program that really excited me!  I’m talking, got me giggly and antsy kind of excited.  Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Public Administration.

Not only will this help with my work at 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control and the new organization we have started branching from there AmMo PAC, by giving me a broader understanding of organizations and politics.  This will also give me a better understanding of politics, which I have been wanting for some time, many more job options when I have the degree and who knows where I can take that!

Anyone who feels like covering me in prayer, it would be greatly appreciated.  This is a four year degree, so it will be a strain on the family a tad.  But it will be something that benefits us greatly in the long run.

I have applied and am starting financial aid.  I should start June 2!


Book Review: Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matthew Bracken


This book…wow…this book was just awesome.  Can I be that informal for a second.  It was awe-some.

This novel has edge of your seat excitement, gripping storyline, characters that are real and events that happen and seem to threaten us as Americans now.

Matthew Bracken is an excellent author.  I was caught up in the lives of people so much that at times I had to tell myself to relax!  My muscles would be so tense that you would have thought I was the one in the story that it was actually happening to!

The conspiracies are bouncing off the walls in this book!

There is a second and third part to this book.  I will definitely be reading them.  I can’t wait to see what will be happening!

Spring is here

Washington State Elected Officials and Your Gun Rights ~ Governor Jay Inslee

First, I want to start this blog post with an introduction of sorts.  I do not believe that I ever shared on my blog the new position that I took on with a new organization called 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control.  If you have not yet heard of us, you can read our Mission Statement here.  On August 23, 2013, I accepted the position of State Coordinator for the Washington state chapter of 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control (1MMAGC).

official_1mmagc_logoThe past 4 months have been an awesome learning experience and has been a great honor.  I am so glad to say that I am involved in the fights for our 2A rights!  Thank you to all of the ladies, and men, who have allowed me to work with them.  🙂

Since part of our mission is to educate the public, I have decided that Washington needs to know about our public officials and their gun sense.  Politics is something that I have only started to really pay attention to in the past 6 or 7 years, so I’m still pretty new to it all and still learning.  Many of you may already know this information, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that there are others out there like me who just don’t know about politics.  So this is my attempt to clarify a little and educate.

With that said, let’s begin our first post.

Washington state recently turned over the governor’s seat to Jay Inslee.  What does his new role have in store for us?

Jay Inslee is a 5th generation Washingtonian and has been in the public eye since 1985, when he and his wife, Trudi, were involved in building a new public school for Selah, Washington.  He has since climbed the political ladder and even had the time to write and illustrate books.

But where does he stand on gun control?

According to the NRA and On The Issues, Jay Inslee receives an F on his gun control issues.  You can read more about this information by clicking this link here:

Inslee has been quoted saying that “the availability of guns that hold 30 or 100 rounds doesn’t make sense“.   In 1994, Inslee voted in favor of the Federal Assaults Weapons Ban.

Be watching for the new initiatives that are coming out for Washington to vote on.  I will blog more about them at a later time.  If you’re not registered to vote, please do so here, and help us all to keep our rights.  You can also find a voter registration form at any Driver’s License office.

If you are already a voter and would like to join the fight, please find an organization near you to join.  There are many of them out there.  If you’d like to join 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control, please fill out the volunteer application here and we’ll get back to you shortly.  There are many different positions available.  It’s not just for moms either, men are welcome and appreciated!
