About Me

I’m Judy. Welcome to my website!

For the past 40 years, I’ve been the Default Mom: a stepmother, adoptive mother, grandmother, teacher, counselor, and parenting consultant. I’m a Bible-believing Christian; in church every time the doors open. Although I’ve got enough professional credentials, diplomas, and certificates to be considered an expert, experience has been my wisest teacher. Aside from God, of course.

A native Californian, I’ve lived in the South for more than 20 years. My husband and I are now using our parenting skills on our pets: Auggie, the English Bulldog, and Pumpkin, our overweight cat. Our grown children live all over the country, and we have 29 grandchildren. As of this writing, we still have a son in prison.

Here is your chance to learn from my life.
