My Story

Thank you for visiting!
I am a stay-at-home mom who likes to write about motherhood and adoption. I also share music that has inspired and encouraged me.  You might also find the occasional DIY project or recipe!

I just like to write what God is teaching me in my everyday life:

Love in laundry
Contentment in crumbs
Forgiveness in fruit snacks
Joy for the Journey.
A few years ago I read the most life-changing book
Andrew Murray's The True Vine
More recently I read his Abide in Christ
Since then, I have tried to live my life in the dichotomy of what it means to
Rest in the Lord
Work for the Lord
Some of my favorite things are:
I am currently in the midst of home-schooling my little Kindergartner (soon to be first-grader!). You can check out a post about that here.
Our family is currently going through the process of an international adoption. Check out our adoption story here.
Music inspires me.  It encourages me.  It gets me through some really hard days.
Books are sacred things to me.  Because I love writing, I love words.  I love to read good words and words that are put together well.  Check out my list of favorite books here.

I love to cook and try new recipes.  Although I do not do it very often, I may include one of my favorite dishes here as well!
....God's Word:
The scripture is the source of my love, joy, peace, and patience.  It is everything to me. When I fill myself with God's Word, I am changed.  His Word truly gives me the strength that I need every single day!
My family consist of the following:
My husband, Jason
My three children:
Jack Allen (born May 2008)
Jonathan "Titus" (born June 2010)
Emmalia Kate (born July 2012)
Our cat, Jesse
Our dog, Holly
and hopefully girl number 2 (via adoption).
