Hi All!
It's Susie and like you, I wear many hats.  I am a wife, Mom, Nonna, daughter, sister, friend, former teacher, and slightly Christmas-obsessed.  No role is more important than passing along a Godly legacy to our kids and grandkids. 
We are here to partner with you in that great and messy venture.  Messy, but oh-so-worth-it.  Let's dig in together to see what we can produce!
How did Roots to Arrows begin?
It all started in my classroom. 
As a teacher, connecting with my students and families was paramount for me. In order for kids to be their best and learn, they must feel safe, seen, and known. Finding out who they were and their strengths was my priority at the beginning of each year. Letting them openly share who they were with everyone else began the process of feeling safe and learning.
However, in public education, I couldn't openly share who I was - a Bible-believing, Christ follower. How and why I taught came from that place, but I couldn't openly discuss it. Wanting to provide a basis from scripture with my students and families captivated my mind, but I had to put a generic spin to my teaching, advice, and answers.
Openly sharing from my Biblical worldview about raising kids and grandkids is the focus at Roots to Arrows! (And yes, this is an actual picture of my second grade classroom). :-)
