Hi sweet friend! I'm so happy to welcome you back to this blog. It's a place for us to meet. To take a deep breath in, then out. Stay awhile and let me say a few things that I hope bring, well, hope to your heart and mine! Has this ever been you? (It's been… Continue reading Nothing figured out
This is a fictional account of the story of Rahab of the Bible. It is well-imagined and does stick to the correct facts laid out in Scripture, though they are few. The story takes greater depth and becomes heart-changing in the hands of one of my favorite authors, Tessa Afshar.
Many of us our familiar with this prayer from Matthew 6:9-13 which says, 9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven,hallowed be your name.[a]10 Your kingdom come,your will be done,[b] on earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread,[c]12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."[d]Matthew… Continue reading God, our Father in Heaven
I was sharing this with my husband. So much is going on within my heart and mind right now. I think it's a renaissance of me. God showing me the very heart of who He created me to be. And giving me the way forward to actually voice what has been stuffed inside for many,… Continue reading Renaissance
Do you ever feel like you just aren't enough? Don't do enough, can't give enough? Everyone around you seems to do the best they can and you come up short, again.

I'm usually able to stay in a bright place and find the joy, but doing that has been like pulling… Continue reading When it Just Keeps being Hard
2019 will always be the year I had my baby girl. She came to us "late" but early this year in February. Such a sweet gift and perfect addition to our family. I just finished playing with my son, laying beside each other laughing inside his tent. There's nothing that fills my heart so much… Continue reading 2019- Year in Review
I have been doing my dream job for the past 8 years. Since the age of 12, I dreamed of growing up to be a missionary. An African Children's Choir came to our church and my family hosted two boys. It was such an amazing time. We had so much fun and I was deeply… Continue reading Becoming what I wanted to be when I grew up

And along with that, my goal of using this as a platform to hear others' voices, a chorus of courageous ones together has not been happening. In fact, I've failed to post someone's blog who accepted my invitation to… Continue reading To the One
I’ve gotta write this down. It’s entitled “Postpartum Bliss” because that’s what this season has been. And it’s so starkly different than my first experience, struggling so deeply with undiagnosed postpartum depression. Part of me feels like I’m holding my breath, having squeaked by the first 6 weeks with only low moments, that I’m able to come out… Continue reading Postpartum Bliss
