Who I Am
Hello friends! I am Ruth Grunstra, and this is my parenting blog! I am very excited you've decided to check it out. My husband, Bernie, and I married in 1980 and he is a pediatrician and internist at Internal Medicine Pediatric Associates in Bristol, TN. We have successfully homeschooled our 8 children, and thoroughly enjoy our 4 grandsons. My desire is to help busy, stressed and weary parents truly enjoy their children, because the time we have with them is so unbelievably short. Let's learn from and encourage each other to make the most of our time. We are in this together!
I have friends of all ages, in fact my children are some of my best friends. I wear many hats...which are swapped out multiple times every day, sometimes every hour. I am someone who loves God, enjoys learning, and prays daily. I love being creative but struggle with time management. Last summer several of my husband's new moms asked me to start a parenting class. This blog-style website is the first step in fulfilling their request.
If you live in the Bristol Tennessee/Virginia area ask about the classes we are offering.
I truly welcome feedback.
So enough about me!! Tell me who you are and what you are learning. Let's get some discussions going that will help us all grow and learn. Our children deserve the best we can give them!!
This blog is designed to offer hope and encouragement to all parents. On the website you will find continually updated articles, links, hotlines and information pertinent to raising children today.
