I am over the moon that you are here!
I believe everything in our lives is a divine appointment set by God and our being here, together, is no accident. We have been reserved by the Lord Himself and knitted together, in this very space, so we can strengthen each other in the Truths of God’s Word.
I’m a crazy-in-love-with-Jesus and His Word girl, mama to five, wife to Scott and cancer survivor.
After 29 years of raising children, I’m in a new season with God. I’m watching, praying and sometimes holding my breath as my children move forward in life, relationships and work. I am loving aging parents and grieving one who’s entered the Kingdom.
I’m discovering new things about myself and where God is leading.
I’m thinking about re”fire”ment, finances and how marriage will look. I am seeking His desires for ministry, work, church and friends. Sometimes it’s easy. Often, not so much.
I’m in new territory and I’m chosing to embrace this leg of the race. It’s going to be a new and exciting adventure with God!
Jesus continues to encourage me through my “Ah-ha!” verses from Psalm 84:5-7
Happy are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Tears, they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength
till each appears before God in Zion.
Joy comes to me when I rely on the Lord and I am blessed because my heart is set on living life God’s way. I will go through some hard stuff here, on this earth, but God sustains me with Living Water from heaven. He drenches me with love, grace, mercy and the power of His Word. He gives me strength in numbers, too – other women to lock arms with on the journey. Together, we encourage one another in the faith to keep our eyes on Jesus and the place we’re going. And even though some of us might arrive at the Throne tired and worn, not one of His will be lost!
Some other stuff about me:
I am a 7-year Breast Cancer Survivor living in the hopes and promises found in Jesus Christ. I am hopelessly in love with my husband, Scott, of twenty-four years. We are blessed with five amazing children: Trey – 29, Will – 23, Christian – 22, Lillian – 20 and Joshua – 18. We have a fur-baby, too – an 18-month Labradoodle named Tucker. I’m a comfort-foodie and my favorite place is the beach. I am dreaming big things for myself and the women God loves.

Keeping it real
- Life always looks better on a blog and the only perfect thing you’ll find in my home is God’s Word.
- Everything I say is what God wants me to hear.
- I’m a woman, on my knees, daily seeking Jesus’ presence and purpose for myself and those He loves.
Strength to strength,
