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 two beautiful daughters ages 7 and 5, a 4 year old son we adopted in 2012, and a foster daughter who is 4 and her brother who is 3 years old, both soon to be adopted.

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.
