I was so pleased when Jerinda accepted my invitation to be a contributor on 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires. Her expertise in homeschooling products, tools for children with autism, and eco-friendly products offers relevant and valuable content to 3G2S readers.

Meet Jerinda:

"My name is Jerinda and I’m a happily married mom of two amazing boys, born in 2001 & 2007. Avery, my oldest, is a typical boy who loves to play soccer, read, watch TV, ride his bike, and play with his brother and friends. My youngest, Quinn, is a delightful child who takes great joy in many things such as his collection of rocks, his favorite toys, and his family. Quinn also has Asperger’s Disorder, which makes him think just a little differently than everyone else. In addition to Quinn having Asperger’s, my husband does as well. Our family dynamic is a little different than other families but we love each other and we do our best to make our life function for everyone.

In addition to being a mom and wife, I am passionate about leading a Green life in my home for my family. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, making small graphics, designing websites, researching topics that interest me, and helping educate people about living green and dealing with autism spectrum disorders. My family and our health is my passion in life and I take whatever steps I can to make our quality of life better."


Meet Todd (Resident IT expert):

Todd is my husband and the other sapphire of 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires. He is a regular blog contributor, who writes product reviews and offers the point of view of as a father and IT professional. He also shares some Silly Monkey Stories from time to time.


Meet Jake (a.k.a. The TKD Kid):

Jake is my "tween"age son and is a casual blogger on his own site Jake's Clubhouse.  He has co-written many reviews with me over the past few years and now has been promoted to a contributor, a role in which he will have blog posts and reviews published that are entirely written by him.
