Stars Shine Bright on a Moonless Night

Speak Life! Life is multi-dimensional and amazing. My desire is to inspire you to see the adventure that life affords us and discover the light in each stage, process and even challenge you find yourself in.  Where does my help come from? It comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2)

About Me

Speak Life!

Welcome to Lookin' Up with Mountainbird. 
My multifaceted site reflects my multifaceted life.  I juggle lay ministry, writing, potting with clay, cooking, art, adventure, and sales/service of insurance, nutritional products and legal service plans.  This makes for many topics to share here.  My focus will be writing, health and wellness, cooking, gardening, nature and anything that inspires.   
My personal history is I am a mother of three grown sons, a former carpenter and professor of English and Education.  Missions and service are passions.  Now I help where I live and advocate two charities:  Children with Hair Loss and  the Anthony J. Falbo Memorial Fund (an art scholarship).  Formerly I served as a short term missionary to Thailand, Haiti, El Salvador and Ghana
Browse around my site and let me know your topic ideas and responses. Perhaps you'd like to be a guest contributor.  Let me know your fave topics or postings.  Formerly from the north but currently a southern gal, I'll say, "Love to hear from y'all--and come back now."
