About Me

Barbara2What can I say about me? I graduated with honors from the University of Northern Iowa with B.A. in English. I earned a Masters of Education in English from the University of Minnesota and a Certificate in Gifted Education from Hamline University. Over the past thirty some years I have taught in several academic settings including public, private, and home school. In addition, our family lived and worked as missionaries with The Navigators in Akademgorodok, Russia as leaders of a church we helped plant there. My husband, J. Andre, owns an architectural firm. Our son, J. Christopher, is Director of Communications and Campaigns at The Expectations Project and Founder at Recovering Evangelical, and our daughter, Claire, is a registered pediatric nurse at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, MN. Christopher and Claire are both married. One beloved grandson, two ‘grand puppies’, and two adorable grand nephews. My greatest joy is my faith-walk with God. Other passions include teaching, reading, writing, poetry, gardening, camping, and serving our beloved local church and neighborhood. Andre and I now live in Minnesota in the land of 10,000 lakes and quite a few mosquitoes.

    What can I say about… this marvelous woman I’ve been married to for 37 years? Pay attention – she has wonderful things to say.
