This blog has been a prayer project of mine for what seems like f o r e v e r. I’ve been dreaming of being able to write and encourage ladies in whatever season life finds you in.
In the last ten years I’ve been through so many different types of seasons, as I’m sure you have too. From being newly married and serving on the mission field in Mexico, to raising three small children in a foreign country and learning how to be a mom and wife in that context. Soon after we moved back to the US to New England, to help with a church plant with my now four sweet kiddos. To most recently moving and starting over again here on the West Coast.
In each place I’ve met wonderful people and also found so much comfort in those relationships where you can just rest for a minute, plop down on a friend’s couch and just be real. Like–no makeup, laundry not put away, let me reheat you some coffee in the microwave, I’m sorry for the smell coming from my trash can kind of real.
I’ve also had periods of time where there wasn’t a relationship like that to be found, nor was I really a friend like that myself. That’s where the heart of this blog comes from. I hope it can be like a place next door that you can come with no pretense, a place to be built up in your faith, to rest, laugh, be encouraged and have a friend to do life with.
I’m a follower of Jesus, a wife to my best friend, a mom to three handsome, loud and hilarious boys, and one sweet and sassy princess. I love children and am a preschool teacher by day, on the evenings and weekends I love to write, serve in women’s ministry, and am also finishing my degree in Education. I know that can sound like a lot, and I’m realizing that mom brain is indeed a real thing, but God helps me day by day. Above all else, I love Jesus and my life is set out to follow Him and love others, and let everything else fall into place.
