Welcome friend!

Grab a hot cup of your favourite beverage. I've got mine! And come join me right here.


You don't have to be perfect, organized and your house doesn't even have to be clean (shhh! mine isn't!). But you and I can sit right here and visit with Jesus. We can learn from Him. Do life with Him. Even in the midst of all of life's craziness, we can know Him! Why? Simply because He is our ONLY. He is NECESSARY. And He is WORTH every minute we spend with Him.

So, let's take some time today to do what I love and that's spending time in His Word. This little corner of the universe will be our place to dig deep into the treasures of Scripture. You can use this for quiet time, a devotional, Bible study, small group, or just encouragement. It's all up to you!

But promise me this...you will keep chasing Jesus here and everywhere. Welcome friend! I can't wait to grow with you!

Eight Things Motherhood Teaches You!

  Motherhood has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding journeys I have ever embarked upon. When my kiddos are playing nicely together and there’s no trail of legos or crushed Cheerios in sight, being a mom feels magical and beautiful. But then there are days when I’m exhausted, and all I want to…

God’s will or your big dream? Which one would you choose?

It still feels like yesterday. With tears dripping down my cheeks, I held another rejection letter. I had cried so hard that day, the kind of ugly cry that leaves you looking like a morning zombie with mascara running down your nose and face. At that time, my big dream was to be a writer.…

Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Make A New Year’s Resolution!

I’m not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. The very thought of them makes me cringe. Still, at the beginning of this year, I sat down with my fun, bright neon pen and fluffy, big notebook (because I’m a born-again diva) and tried to think and plan all the changes I wanted to make this…
