My name is Brenda Elving. I grew up in Southern California and earned a B.A. in Social Ecology/Human Behavior from University of California, Irvine. I enjoy traveling anywhere, shooting photos of anything, cooking ornate meals and baking artisan breads (if I could only do it all!) I do spend a lot of time reading and learning new things in addition to homeschooling my six children. My husband and I reside for now in a sleepy little area south of Austin, TX. The quiet, rural lifestyle gives me time to ponder God’s hand as I see it. I try to pepper each new thought with a photo or two from my camera so you can see more clearly what I see. Come along with me on my walk through life – I pray that we can grow together in the knowledge of God and ourselves, and I welcome your comments on anything you see.
