I am so happy to have you here. To say I’m humbled would be an understatement.
You see, it’s you, my dear, who makes the journey even more rewarding. I’m just an ordinary girl seeking our extraordinary God. My hope is to bring you along with me as I get real with my life, praying and believing it brings life to yours.
Here’s a little inside scoop. I’m a Jesus lover through and through. His grace overwhelms me and his love has created a beautiful mosaic with the shattered pieces of my heart. For that, I will ever praise him. He is worth knowing beyond anyone else. Writing helps reveal the condition of my heart convicting me of areas in need of change. I love to read magazine articles to blogs to books but my absolute favorite is God’s Word. It’s life-changing, friend. I am a wretch married to my favorite wretch, and (so undeservingly) saved by grace. He’s a hard working country boy who still gives me butterflies.
The odds have been against us since day one, but thank you Jesus, you knew all along. Your grace and provision are enough.
I was a single mother of two precious boys ages 1 and 2 when my husband and I began our relationship. To be honest, I’m pretty sure he loved them before he ever thought about loving me. To this day he has never treated them any different than his very own. Priceless. A blended family wasn’t God’s design but there is a place for redemption and blessing in all the hard places. We then added three more little ones now having three rambunctious boys and two sweet girls. Love their little hearts, they know how to wear a mama out. Day by day the seven of us are figuring this life thing out together in which I hope to inspire others along the way.
I traded the dream of being a New York journalist, chasing taxis in business attire while sipping lattes for a stay at home mom/blogger (in an old farmhouse that I adore) chasing toddlers in yoga pants while sipping herbal teas. I would rather write from the tablet of my heart any day than an assigned magazine article. The dream I never imagined that I wouldn’t trade.
I am the queen of lost keys. True story: They have been found in the refrigerator…in the bag of grapes. Some people need coffee; I need the sunrise. Rainbows bring hope to my weary soul. My greatest housewife battle is SOCKS! Amen anyone? Late night heart to hearts are my favorite.I’m nuts over anything cooked in garlic. (poor hubby) Music is therapy to my soul. I’m not sure I could go a day without it. I enjoy change and embracing new adventures especially if it involves the outdoors.. Hot baths soothe the longest of days. Less is more in my opinion. There’s so much more to know along the way.
Truth is, I want to know more about you. What’s your story? Where are you in your journey and how can I better serve you through my writing? I am here to love you in the hard places and rejoice with you in the good. I hope to speak truth to the lies and weary places in your heart. I certainly don’t have all the answers but I serve a merciful God who does. Here’s to you, my friend and to a journey worthwhile.
