This is Us

This show. It has grabbed ahold of my heart. It causes me to reflect on my marriage and my children Every.Single.Episode. It shows me that great people are flawed. Not that they can be but they are. We are all human and flaws are apart of that. Flaws are relatable. Marraiges that have ups and downs, kids that don’t always…

Dictornary.com defines fervent as: “having or showing great warmth or intensity of spirit, feeling, enthusiasm”. I absolutely love the definition of this word. 2018 is going to be full of changes and excitement and I want to have…

I am a mess

I am a mess. And not the cute mess as in messy bun and yoga pants but the kind of mess that really makes you stop and think what is happening in my life. Several months ago I thought I knew what I wanted and what the next chapter for me looked like but God had different plans. I had…
