Hi My name is Jean Schmuker. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and I am a retired school librarian. I can’t tell you how many times I have started on the journey of writing about my life and how many times I have kept putting it off. I am hoping the accountability of this program will be the incentive that I need. I am married to a retired city financial officer and our one and only daughter is moving this month to North Carolina to start a new job and snow less life. I am an avid scrapbooker and have told some short stories of my life in my scrapbooks but would like to get more organized. I live within an hour of beautiful Lake Michigan but rarely get over there. I am looking forward to working with this group and hearing your stories.
