M. Leigh Marrott's Bio:
Just one woman doing her best to fulfill her roles as wife and mother in a world where those roles aren't always appreciated or valued.
At a quick glance, I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mama. A military spouse. A college graduate with a AS in Social Work and a BS in Social Psychology. A Mormon.
On this side of invisible, I am an every-day-flip-flop wearing, sometimes quick-witted, often sarcasm-filled, trying-to-be-healthy-by-living-on-brownies, singing-it-out-loud, dancing-whenever, wherever-I-can, neuroscience-wannabe, adventure seeking, avid reading, ambitious writing, slightly rebellious kind of girl.
