I am a 32 year old child of God. My husband and I have been friends since we were kids and married for over 10 years. We have five beautiful children through birth and adoption.

Christ is my Savior and my rock. He has blessed me and shaped me through my trials. I am so thankful for His love and grace.

I love to create. I have a special passion for DIY projects and and anything crafty. We are a family with food allergies to gluten and dairy so we take our passion for cooking seriously and love making new recipes.

Writing has always been a love of mine but has often sat on the back burner. When I was a child and young adult I loved to write poetry and reflective stories. Over the years I have become busy with life but I kept a journal for my children to have when they are older.

This last year I have let writing become more of a focus.

Over the last few years my husband and I have been foster parents to 5 children and writing has helped me digest the challenges and joys we have had.

One of my new favorite verses in the bible is James 1:2-3.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance."

I hope I can help encourage, relate and inspire.
