Paper Bridges is: Adventures in homeschooling, books I've read, honest refections on life as a wife/mom to four (one husband, four kids, just so we're clear), thoughts on faith and Christianity in today's world. All the important things I want to remember. Like most of you, for years I've kept a journal next to my bed to record the things I want to remember. Blogging is my public journal. I welcome your
comments. ~Monica @ Paper Bridges

PaperGirl is a record of that which is joyful, tragic, achingly funny. Often, one entry comprises all of these things and more. From the desk of a professional freelance writer comes a kind of daily bonbon -- all the sugar, all the satisfaction, none of the calories.
I grew up between cultures on the islands of Indonesia and in the mountains of Papua. I gained another home in the amazing city of Chicago during my college years, and there I met and married my husband. I have a love/hate relationship with our current city of residence - Dallas (hello, southern conservatives!). I am a cynic, a believer, a writer, a thinker, and a global nomad.
