My name is Claire. 

I like to write and don't really know what I want to be when I grow up.

I like weddings and babies and all the parties that go with them, but I hate children's birthday parties and try really hard to convince my kids not to have them. 

I like making stuff and waiting weeks days to clean up my messes.

I love Jesus and am thankful for the blessings, forgiveness and daily encouragement He gives me through fellowship and friends.

I love my husband and getting to raise our three kids with him. 

I love Sacramento and its art, food, music and small-town-on-the-cusp-of-bigness fun. 

And I love you for taking the time to read about me.

If you are visiting from The Influence Network, welcome! I have linked up for the Influential Women link-up, though I realize that I haven't exactly followed the rules and written a new post. That's another thing about me, I am a bit of a rule-bender! ;)

xoxo Claire
Gal.2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

God’s Word calls us to cultural engagement rather than cultural retreat. That is what it means to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. --Jerram Bar
