Hi There! I'm Jordan Laine Thomson. A writer at heart, an emotional exhibitionist, a proud mama, semi-cool wife, and world's worst small-talker. I believe I've been put in this earth to share my gifts with others through written & spoken word. I have a knack for people, despite my shy & introverted tendencies. Multi-passionate does not begin to describe my personality, it just makes things more confusing. It's my mission to inspire you to write, share & evolve.
