I’m Bobbie Gross
liberal Mormon, frugal living ninja, freelance writer, graphic designer, poet, nerdfighter
I am an idealist (INFP), and I believe that there is good in all people. I love working with children of all ages, elderly people, and anyone who has special needs. I hate injustice of any kind, and despise abuse in all its forms. I’ve been compared to Mary Poppins on too many occasions to count, but when I see someone being bullied or treated unfairly, the raging lioness comes out of me.
Like all people, I’ve had good times and bad times. I currently own my dream home – even though it needs a lot of work! It was my salvation and refuge when a family scandal managed to tear apart my marriage and almost broke me. Now, I’m doing everything I can to be the strongest version of myself – fixing up the house, working from home, and keeping my eyes peeled for the happily ever after that could be right around the corner.
My qualifications range from published poems and conference presentations to my parents’ glowing reviews and a young author’s trophy from the first grade.

Life got in the way of my blogging. Annan and I got engaged and then married. School was crazy. The blog was placed on the backburner.
In 2014, I decided to blog full time. I rebranded the blog, started writing, and set a blogging schedule. I learned as I went along.
Blogging, writing, and designing are my full-time job (though they don’t pay the bills just yet). I am in this thing for the long-haul.

Calling all lonely romantics! I hope this post helps you see the beauty in yourself. Love yourself first.
You all know that something big has been going on in my life the past couple of months. If you know me at all in real life, then you already probably know what it is. But for the rest of you, I think I am finally in a place where I can talk about it. It's not that I...
