Who Am I?


Now that is a loaded question! Who am I indeed?! I’m a woman who loves Jesus, is head over heals in love with her husband, and dearly loves her children. I am blessed even though some days I seem to forget how much. You know, when that daily grind hits, and I let my question become “what work can I get done?” instead of “what relationships can I build?”

I’m passionate about life, and I’m learning everyday how to live an intentional one. A life where I quit running to put out fires, and instead live fully right where I am–confident in who and whose I am. A life that ebbs and flows according to the Spirit, and not my every whim. Oh how my whims can quickly turn to chaos if not tempered with wisdom!

I’m learning. I fail often. But I try again. And again. Isn’t that how it should be? Pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and move forward once more. It helps with God before me, my husband beside me, and my family around me.


What will you find here? As my tag line says, I am “sometimes quirky, sometimes serious, always real”. I am random. I have an ADHD mind. I love life. Creativity sometimes flows faster than I can do anything about. I’m colorful as you will see with my ever changing hair. You will find all of this here.


I write and speak about faith, marriage, family, home education, home making, decorating, creativity, photography, writing, crafting, books, beauty, fitness, music–pretty much everything I love about this amazing life God has given me. I write about good times. I share about hard times. Because life is full of joy and sorrow. Peace and chaos. Beauty and ugliness.

I write life.

        Oh that is so funny. Glad to meet another ADD mind. I can’t wait to find out how this week’s trial went tomorrow. And you’ve really got me rethinking my own systems. :)

      Can’t believe how much we have in common, including an ADD mind. :-) So glad you stopped by my blog. Looking forward to getting your updates!

        Sorry for the delay in approving your comments. It’s been a little crazy as we get back into the homeschool group activities again. :)
