Hi! I’m Cori. Thanks for visiting my blog. I spend most of my time being a wife and mom to my three kids in Small Town, Iowa. But, occasionally I feel compelled to write. Most blogs have a theme or a topic or a platform. This one does not. I’ve been pretty random about writing here, and I have a degree in journalism, hence the “Random Reporter” address. I’ve changed what I call this place a few times, but I’ve settled on “From My Pen.” You can read about how I got the name here. You can also read about my challenge of writing here.

“First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.” — C.S. Lewis
