I'm so glad you're here! Step over the Legos, grab a latte, and let's enjoy a moment together!
I hope my little corner of the web is a place where you can take a pit stop in your day to breathe deep, laugh a little (at my life or yours, both are appropriate), and be encouraged to lean on the Lord in whatever moment you find yourself in.
Most of the moments I find myself in involve dirt, dirt, and more dirt. I never imagined God would bless me with three boys in three and a half years!! But he did. And though most days I can't find time to run a comb through my hair, I wouldn't trade the beautiful chaos for anything.
Not only have my sons, ages 4, 3, and 1, taught me more than I ever knew about weapon noises and the need to constantly wrestle, but they have taught me how to find beauty in the daily messes, how to surrender my will for God's ways, and find joy in my weakness for the sake of glorifying His strength.
I love sharing my heart with girlfriends who understand, love coffee with Italian Sweet Cream, love writing poetry. I love hiking with my boys, getting a french pedicure, and soaking up five minutes of quiet. I could spend an entire day cuddled on the couch with a stack of books...but these days I mostly cuddle boys with salty-sweet necks that nuzzle into mine and whisper silly things in angel voices.
I love to count gifts...look for the ordinary beautiful that's actually a gift straight from God's heart to mine. Gifts that call me to joy. I love to shoot straight about motherhood...because it's the best and hardest thing I've ever done and some days it puts me on cloud 9 and some days I have to pray just to get through the next nine minutes. Motherhood. is. no. joke.
Did I mention I love my boys? Love being a mom?
I love my husband.
I love my Jesus. I want to follow Him each moment of each day, and help others to know and follow him, too.
And I love words. That's because I'm a writer.
So thanks for stopping by! Come on over anytime.
