I quickly realized that I would never have perfect children because they do not have a perfect mother.
My children, like their mother, have days of joy and days of struggle. We're are a group of imperfect people striving to find the beauty in the midst of the madness. I can honestly say that my years as a mother have been an unique blend of opposites: joy and frustration, hope and fear, peace and chaos.
Motherhood brings about its own unique adventures. I catch myself saying things I never thought I would. Things like: "Take your foot out of the Doritos bag."
But, I am more than just a mom. I'm a woman, wife, and writer. My passion is to encourage and equip women through the written word. I love the power of a story. Our lives are molded and guided by the stories of those around us.
I'm a third-generation pastor's wife, and have been married to my handsome hubby for 8 years. We have three little boys who fill our days with plenty of adventures!
I invite you to step into my story, and I encourage you to share your own!

I have a B.A. in Mass Communications and Christian Studies (I like to claim that I'm a TV and Jesus major). In college, I wrote for our university newspaper and worked on the yearbook. I have always had a passion for sharing truths about God through the power of story.
A few of my blog posts have been featured on the MOPS International blog, Hello Darling. If you're not familiar with Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), it's a phenomenal organization and has been my lifeline as a mom of three young kiddos.
I also traveled to El Salvador with Compassion International in order to write about the work Compassion is doing to help free children from poverty. Compassion is also very near and dear to my heart. You can read more about my trip with Compassion here.
