Hi I'm Eowyn

I was a teen mom. I'm a writer, a Director of a Law Office, wife of an artist and the mom of a teen and a toddler. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was, and forever will be known as, a teen parent. I've been on my own since I was 15. I gave birth to my oldest son a month before my 17th birthday. With the help of family, I was able to earn a degree in Sociology while working fulltime and caring for my little one. I married my best friend at 30 and we had our second child a year and a half later. So now I am a parent of a 22 year old and an 8 year old. I've been a writer since I was about 13 and hope to finish a book that will help other teen parents fight through those early years. It's been hard to write because I've had to work so much to survive. Since college, I've been in the legal field as a bookkeeper and office manager. I like the work, but feel a strong pull to finish that book to not only help teen parents, but to also hopefully help with prevention.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always felt a pull, a longing, like something was missing. For a long time I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. I was born the daughter of a faithful Mormon convert, and still it wasn't until my late 20's that I realized what that feeling was. When I think about my Heavenly Father, I feel... homesick. I feel, what I can only describe as desperate to return to Him and be with my brothers and sisters again. I am a Mormon, because when I walk into a chapel or a temple, that feeling melts away. By stepping into those buildings, I am taking steps to get home. I know this church is true and that our brother, Jesus Christ, sacrificed himself so that we could go home one day.

How I live my faith

I taught little kids' sunday school for years and miss it desperately. My husband and I now teach the 16-17 age group in sunday school. It feels humbling to be teaching kids just on the edge of being adults that are so insightful and thoughtful of others.
