My heart is bursting as I type these first words on this blank page. I have so much to say, so much churning inside my heart. I am giddy with excitement and incredibly anxious, both at the same time.
I never thought of myself as a writer but I have always wanted to be and I do feel like I have a story to tell. When my husband and I lived in London I kept a blog to keep family and friends updated. When we came back to the States, I was readjusting to life with our 6 month old little girl and my time was consumed with figuring this whole motherhood thing out. The secret’s out though, I haven’t figured it out! I’ve definitely done a fare amount of growing in the short 5 years of being a mom, but believe me, I see many MANY more years of growth in the near future 😉
Our family has gone through so much over the past year especially. I want to share our story in hopes that it may encourage others walking on similar journeys, trying to figure out this whole life thing one day at a time.
My life is so different than I could have ever imagined it. Looking back, I can see how the Lord has fit every situation together perfectly to bring us to where we are even now.
I hope whether you are married or single, with kids or without, and everything in between, that you will find encouragement written throughout these pages.
I can confidently say that even though our lives are different than I would have planned, God knew beforehand every step we would take, each child we would welcome into our family, and all the challenges we would face.
Grab some coffee, or tea, probably some tissues occasionally (fair warning!) and read away. I can’t guarantee these posts will be all rainbows and sunshine, but I pray we will all learn a thing or two along the way as I share the good and hard as I look for the beauty in the brokenness of life.
