Family has always been important to me. I come from a family of 7 children, forged through a blended family. When my sister became paralyzed at the age of 14, I saw two separate families come together in love for her and for the relationships we all share as siblings. Facing a fire of tragedy […]

Earlier this year I wrote the first post about my word of the year. Read Be Brave. Work Hard. Don’t Give Up. This year… that word is TRUST. I have always struggled with this idea of “the unknown.” And the fact that I have been on pins and needles for the last year or so […]

Being a mom has pulled me, stretched me, and grown me more than I ever thought possible. And it’s ONLY BEEN 9 MONTHS since Kinsley was born. I had always heard that you never know how much love is truly in your heart until you have a child. Well that’s 100% true. It has made […]
