Here is a bit of information about me and the blog, including links in this paragraph and below to some of my most popular posts. I am a licensed attorney but most of the counsel I provide is clearly of the “in-house” type – tales of the trials and joys of life with boys. I write weekly non-fiction essays with the hope that something I say will amuse, encourage, or inspire you. I am a daughter of the South, born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, grounded at Auburn University, trained at Harvard Law School, and shaped by years spent living in New England and Texas raising 4 unique boys, all born in a rather intense period of 5 1/2 years. My sons are now ages 21, 20, 18, and 16. I write about raising boys, marriage, law, education, and those times in life when God gives us glimpses of His glory. I am married to my “Boring Man” Ed Powell and now live in Nashville, Tennessee.

A Quote from Flannery O’Connor
“I must tell you how I work. I don’t have my novel outlined and I have to write to discover what I am doing. Like the old lady, I don’t know so well what I think until I see what I say; then I have to say it over again.”
