About My Library

When we married, my husband and I owned several books ranging from theology to classic English works to science fiction.

Since beginning to homeschool in 2004, our library has grown immensely. It contains a large number of history books, science from the Christian perspective, and an assortment of various other topics across the curriculum. Plus, we have an interest in Theology, Apologetics, and socio-political issues.

Our library focuses on Christian and homeschool resources and we lend out to our local church and homeschool communities.

About Me

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a beloved wife, and a mother of two young adults whom I homeschooled.


After graduating from college with a BA in English with a literature emphasis, I worked for two years in a Christian book store, then I freelanced as a copyeditor and writer of articles for the Christian magazine market and served as the editor of the Northwest Christian Author newsletter for nine years (1994 to 2003) and wrote book reviews and a bimonthly author profile column for the "Christian Library Journal" from 1996 to 1998. I blogged for Academy Northwest (academynw.com), a hybrid homeschool/private school program from 2018 to 2023.

I currently blog at Lorinda's Ponderings on Substack.
