The Blog: Hi! This blog originally started as a private site where I could journal, post thoughts from my day, and – quite frankly – vent about things that frustrated me. In 2009, God put it on my heart to make my blog public and begin using it for His glory. It’s been a blessing to see this site evolve from what it was to what I desire it to be. I pray you might feel encouraged, inspired, and welcome when you visit. Kick your feet up & make yourself at home!
The Family: My husband, Matt (usually referred to in posts as “hubs”) and I married in 2006 but have been together since 2000. We were high school sweethearts and band geeks who, by the grace of God, survived a 5 year long distance relationship during our college years. We’re committed to a marriage that is not just good, but great (but certainly not always easy) –and I’m so thankful to have married my best friend. And now we have our amazing daughter, Madison Sophia, to add to the joy!
God has also blessed me with the opportunity to work with (in)courage as a Community Group Coordinator, which is an answer to prayer God put on my heart in 2012 during (in)RL. I'm also a contributing writer at Allume, a member of the Raising Generations Today planning committee, a humble member of Holley Gerth's God Sized Dream Team, and in the baby steps of a virtual assistant career. After all of the pouring out and encouarging, I find myself refreshed with the HelloMornings team and encourage you to sign up if you're looking to spend quality time with God :)
The Request :) I welcome and encourage comments on any blog post but I ask you to remember that these posts are about my life, my faith and my family. As Ann Voskamp and Holley Gerth so eloquently put it, “Only speak words that make souls stronger.”
