I’m so glad God brought us together to this little corner of the Internet. I’ve created this space with YOU in mind, so pour yourself a cup of something warm (make mine tea, please!) and stay awhile.
Here’s my hope for you: I hope this space finds you and keeps you. I hope you discover the words you need to read and uncover the messages God’s planted for you to find. I hope you’re encouraged and inspired and, most importantly, reassured that our Savior loves you just as you are.
As you read, I pray what’s written here draws you closer to God and that, through sharing what He’s done and is still doing through the dry deserts and lush gardens of my life, you’ll be supported along your journey. .

It’s hard to obey God when he calls us away from something we love, but he’s not angry if we need to wrestle it out or question his plan.
I was at the height of my career in non-profit marketing when I did the unthinkable; I walked away to become a stay-at-home mom and full-time homemaker. In the months following my son’s birth, I felt God tugging at my heart, calling me to lay down my professional ambitions and follow his lead out of the workplace and into the home.

As I snuggled next to my fur-baby Casey on the cold floor of the vet’s office, I knew that heartbreaking moment was just seconds away. Once I said my goodbyes, the vet would administer a shot, leaving me without my constant companion of 12 years. With my face buried in her furry neck, I whispered, “Jesus, hold my heart” as grief began to overwhelm me.
