My bare foot childhood was mostly spent hunting dinosaurs, building sofa cushion forts, transforming robots, sending Barbie on archaeological treasure hunts, and swimming in the pool. I pursued a degree from the University of Miami and taught elementary school until my babies arrived. Since then, I have been homeschooling two adventurous boys and two dynamic girls. I now leave the classroom teaching to my mathematically inclined hubby.
Although I love working with children in classroom and summer camp setting, my greatest joy is introducing young children to God’s loving promises found in Scripture. I currently worship and serve with my husband and four children at Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, NC. You can connect with me @heathermolendyk on Instagram.
I love to laugh. I crave honesty. I enjoy a surprise ending. I try to swirl all those components together in every piece I craft. If I can catch a reader by surprise, if I can make a person snicker, if can reach a person’s heart, then I have done my job.
