I've been blogging for many years, and it has certainly evolved over time. I have been beyond humbled and blessed by the places God has brought me.

Writing is my safe place and these days, I write when I can. Having a large family I homeschool and working from home makes my time quite limited.

Today, I find myself in a desperate need of rest and the need to be filled so I can pour out. 

As I am encouraged, my hope is to share that encouragement with you. Whether it's from fellow bloggers, authors, or my family.  I have a Daily Dose section on the site that offers a short encouragement, inspiration, or challenge each day, Monday - Friday.

I also have the Blog section that serves for longer articles.

I pray you will find this a place of rest and refreshment. 

You can subscribe to the Blog here and to the Daily Dose here. Or, you can sign up for both here.

You can follow me on Pinterest and Facebook.

On a personal note...

I have been married since 2000 and my amazing husband and I have seven children and 2 dogs.

Our children's ages are 16, 15, 13, 13, 12, 10, 8. Two of our children are adopted from Ghana, West Africa. You can read about that journey here

We also have 2 dogs: A 5-year old great dane named Kesse (means "big" in our Ghanaian daughters' native language). We also have a pug who's 4 years old whose name is Wrinkles. 

I am a follower of Jesus -- working out my salvation everyday and learning what it means to love God and love others well; always remembering love isn’t a feeling, it’s an action.
