love my family

Welcome In Love!

So, this is my fam damily! I am the simple girl on the left who paired up with gorgeous boy on the right–a guy who crushed my heart at first sight. After a ten-minute chit chat with him my junior year in college, I rushed home to tell my best friend I found the man I’m going to marry. She cackled, rolled her eyes to dangerous levels, and told me I was crazy. Twelve months later he proposed. And here we are, almost 25 years later, still ‘crazy’ in love.

Life is much quieter these days as my mom heart adjusts to an empty home. God dropped three apples from my mom tree in the first 3 1/2 years of our marriage, and somehow they’ve all grown up already, having left the orchard in pursuit of their dreams. My faithful dog, Charlie, fills in the gaps.

Motherhood is a gift. Timeless, priceless, patternless, and endless. This journey we share as sisters in Christ and mothers by heartstrings allows us to connect in the deep recesses of our souls in ways only a mother can understand. Our struggles are real and anxieties universal, which is why I created this space. Leaning in to one another and sharing stories helps us connect and find solace in knowing we aren’t alone on a motherhood island. Though our journeys are unique, our dreams, fears, joys, and sorrows overlap.


I invite you to join me as we wander into our mom hearts in search of our true self and reach upward to Jesus for guidance and understanding. Here we will celebrate and mourn, laugh til we cry and cry til we laugh. My role is to help you to feel loved and accepted for who you are, precisely where you’re at. And from that launching point, I’ll pray you forward.

Besides this homefront, you’ll find my writing out and about on the internet frontier at places like  Her View From Home,, For Every Mom, Thrive Global, HuffPost, Sammiches & Psyche Meds, If you are a fan of Guideposts, I’ve had a couple stories printed there as well in the July 2017 issue, The Inspiring Tattoo Connection, and the most recent February 2018 issue, “Goodbye, Kahrin.” (not online yet)

So, join the family by clicking here and let’s inhale and exhale God’s grace together as we learn more about who we are as women, wives, mothers along the journey He sets before us. We can inspire, encourage, and love one another forward through the beautiful role we’ve been given. When you sign up here you’ll receive a FREE download, “Who I Am As a Mom in Christ.”

Looking forward to your friendship as we swap stories of motherhood and all things sisters-in-Christ! Please feel free to reach out. You can contact me here.

Let’s know love and #BeLOVE, sisters.
