Hello! I joined a little bit ago back in December, but I’m still trying to navigate the things. I found out about SGS through a friend who found her husband through it. I wanted to find other like-minded peers, and SGS seemed like the best place to find them. 😀 It’s hard sometimes to find people with similar beliefs, and it’s cool to have found a site for it. 😀
Small bit about me:
I’m the eldest of five kids. I work part-time as a preschool teacher (and have so far survived it), and I’m a speculative fiction writer. My first novel was published last November. I’m also a professional niece/nephew cuddler and they seem to tolerate it.
I attend a church that’s about an hour away, but it’s amazing and I love the church family there and that God put my family there (that story involves goats). I also teach there, so I also get to feel really old when I get students who weren’t even born when I started attending. xD
Random trivia: I have a major sweet tooth (almost anything chocolate), I was homeschooled all my life, and I don’t like mango (the exception would be the mango I had in Peru. That was the best mango and I have yet to find any in the US that compares).
So… yeah, that’s a small bit about me! I’m excited to be here. 😀

I just got on today and read your into. I am also here to meet like-minded people. I had an account several years back and did not use it as much as I hoped. I am giving it another go.
I think we have a few things in common. I am the second oldest of 5 and we were all homeschooled as well!
I am curious about when you were in Peru? Have you traveled much? And speaking of chocolate, do you like to bake? I am more of a savory person myself but I do love a good carrot cake:-)
Good to meet you!

I’m trying to remember I have an account some days. xD And here I thought I was more extroverted/social online than I am in real life. xD
Ooh, nice! 😀 I love meeting homeschoolers who come from big families!
I haven’t traveled a whole lot, save for a few vacations, or trips to visit family. I traveled to Peru to volunteer at an orphanage. I helped out a little with the kids’ schooling, and taught them some basic English. It was a fantastic experience, and it was my first time traveling internationally (and by my myself). But it was so fun and I almost didn’t want to leave them all. xD
I don’t bake a lot, but when I do I love making sweet things. I recently made latte spritzers (basically coffee-flavored cookies) and they were SO good!
Do you bake?

I am not a baker, but I love cooking. It is a kind of therapy for me. I love trying all different kinds of cuisine too. I basically just love food. Because I watch a lot of Korean TV, I have gotten pretty familiar with cooking this kind of food.
That is so funny that your first trip overseas was solo too. My first time on a plane, traveling abroad was to Swaziland Africa. I can totally relate! It was a humanitarian trip as well and I did not want to leave the kids either. It was very eye open for me to see how other cultures live. I think everyone should spend time abroad.
So how did you get into writing?

Ooh, nice! 😀 What’s your favorite dish to make? I don’t think I’ve ever had Korean food.
That’s so cool! What did you do in Africa? It was definitely a growing experience for me. But thank goodness for Google Translate. xD (Also, I’m pretty sure USA McDonald’s is missing out on the passionfruit ice cream sundae… that was amazing and I’m sad I’ve only seen it in Peru. xD)
I’ve loved to write since I was young. I’d started out by writing fanfiction of favorite Saturday morning cartoons, and then started my own original stories. I mostly write speculative fiction/fantasy, and I’ve loved it ever since. 😀
