About


I’m so glad that you are visiting my blog today! I assure you that I am just a regular girl. Probably a lot like you. In the midst of my crazy life, I am searching for a connection with my Creator and with community.

I am the wife of an amazing pastor who is truly wild at heart, a man’s man. We have six children of various ages, colors, and personalities. They are tweens and teens, each amazing in their own unique way. We don’t parent them perfectly. In fact, we mess up daily and ask for forgiveness often.

I am not organized by nature, but have figured out a few things a long the way to keep us all alive and clothed. Menu planning, chore charts, and planners are things I am learning to love. Learning. I have read every book about each and have taught younger women how to make it happen, but deep inside I fight the system. And fail. So, I have come to see them like gas for my van. Necessary.

I love to write. It’s how God works things out in me. If his voice can speak through my mess to you, I am truly bewildered and blessed.

I am not a super hero. I hung up my cape a few years ago. When I’m tempted to put it back on, I remember how tired it makes me. I think how foolish I was to believe that I could do it all, that somehow I had the power to be all things to all people, all the time. I lived most of my life under my own unrealistic expectations for myself instead of the grace of God. When I found freedom and hung up my cape, I began to live in joy and freedom. I pray you know that same grace.
