I am a problem solver.  Remember that song from Sesame Street “There’s a Hole in the Bucket”

Don’t waste time complaining.  Figure out what’s wrong and fix it, dear Henry!

When I realize something has become a source of frustration, that’s what I do: figure out what’s wrong and fix it.  Then, instead of getting annoyed about a problem, I begin to derive simple joy from my solution.  This blog will be a place where I will share some of my Creative Solutions.

In addition to Creative Solutions by Julie, I also write reflections and insights on life and faith at Momilies and More.  Momilies are kind of like a “homily” written by a Mom, and intended for all who might be interested in thinking about the different ways one’s faith is lived out in daily life.
