I am beyond happy that you’ve taken a moment to stop by and visit.


Everyone has a story.

Mine isn’t any more difficult or easy than anyone else’s.

It is simply mine.


So, who am I?   Well …


I am a woman once broken, now mended and redeemed.

I am an author, blogger, speaker, ministry leader, and columnist.

I am a wife to an amazing man, a proud mother, and a blessed step-mom.

I am a lover of life's simple little luxuries. I spend my days writing, caring for our home and family, attending committee meetings, supporting my husband in any way he needs as he runs and operates an agriculture business (we're proud potato people!) …  you know, basically tending to the details of life.



Who doesn't love kisses in front of the Christmas tree?? 


I am a hugger, a voracious reader, a messy artist and DIY-er, professional recipe developer, blessed with the gift of hospitality, thriving with an autoimmune disease, and a believer in Jesus.

Life is full and often incredibly wonderful...


   I make no claims of perfection however.

You won't need to search very hard to discover my failures and hurts and struggles.

Yet, every tiny moment of each day, every discovery, experience, mistake, and lesson learned entwines together and creates my story. A story of redemption and a desire to thrive.

And while I have a long list of interests, and wear many hats in this life, everything I do carries the same intention at the core of it; to thrive in body and spirit despite illness and hardships, to live with grace and purpose through life's suffering, to pursue a fulfilled life in Jesus, and to encourage you to do the same as you live out your own story of redemption.
