Hi – I’m Genny. Welcome to my corner of the web! I hope you’ll stay a while, browse around, and make yourself at home. And don’t forget to introduce yourself before you leave. It’s always nice to meet new visitors.

A little about me if you’re new here: I live in Northern California with my husband Mike and our two kids, where I balance motherhood with writing and love both. We have a dog named Bailey and a cat named Charlie and we’ve been through far too many fish and mice to mention.

When I’m not running our kids to soccer or swim team, you can usually find me writing, reading and reviewing books, or helping with communications at Courage to Be You, an amazing non-profit that’s building homes for kids rescued out of trafficking.

I love getting together with friends over coffee and sharing what’s going on in our lives. When I started MyCup2Yours, that was my thought; I wanted to create a place where people could spend time together and “share a cup”… finding encouragement, support, tips, and inspiration.

I hope you enjoy your time here; thanks again for stopping by. It’s so nice to have you over!

“Two are better than one… for if they fall, one will lift up the other.”
-Ecclesiastes 4:9

  1. I read your blog post on family size and how you figured out what number of kiddos you all wanted. I have 4 and still struggling with possibly being done. Anyways, something about your wording and even your profile photo had me curious because I thought, is this gal a christian or am I reading something into her that isn't there. Then you I saw you had the Ecc. verse at the bottom of your profile. You've got that inner light, thank you for posting your thoughts, they do inspire and encourage!
