Born in Philadelphia and temporarily brainwashed in college. Graduated from Villanova University and quickly detoxed from the comfort of academia by lots of hard work and real life experiences. Quickly smitten by Gary and absolutely unwaveringly euphoric around him, still. Blessed with a daughter in 1991 and a son in 1993. Humbled by my son's severe illness in 1995 and grateful beyond measure for his eventual recovery which defied all prognoses. Discovered God among Epicopalians in an Episcopal Church and began to enjoy Him among Presbyterians, in a Presbyterian Church. Now in my sixties, I am content to understand God and His will for us in simple, wonderful and uncomplicated ways - among anyone, anywhere. Strongly believe and steadily receive His love and mercy, gratefully and with an open heart. Moved 14 times, in seven different states (that’s U.S. states, NOT the state of anxiety, shock, fear, happiness, menopause, etc.). Have written and published two books, discovered and sold a patent for a new treatment methodology using a little-understood hormone. Home schooled both of my children up until college age. Created and market a music-based phonics and reading curriculum for children who are developmentally challenged, wildly brilliant, or anywhere in between. Wrote and developed an extensive educational system for children with learning differences, ten years in the making. Blessed beyond measure, still crazy-in-love with the dashing Mr. Beck, and enjoy family time (and dogs) more than just about anything. Lacking in my life has been the physical presence of parents, who have both been deceased over thirty-five years. Never lacking, however, is my memory of them and their inspiration to live a meaningful life - always standing up for principles and seeking truth. I recently moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, where ocean views and walks on the beach are a part of nearly every day. I like to write… and have a few views about the world, many of which I post here. After all, this is ...not JUST a wife and mom.com!
