About Me

Born #7 of 11, nine of which were boys, I grew up having to prove myself. Not one ounce of “sissy” here (unless I see a spider, I HATE spiders). I am not a big risk taker but love trying new things. Confronting every kind of abuse in my family has me pretty much disowned but I married into a healthy, amazing family that has me feeling like I belong somewhere. I have four amazing kiddos, two girls and two boys. My last pregnancy helped reveal the presence of a very active autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s, that I am working hard to put in remission. I enjoy doing crafty, artsy things and cooking-although I would never call myself a pro at any of it. I love old movies, reading, singing and dancing around with my family; needless to say, our home is loud much of the time. According to a personality test I recently took, I am a extroverted introvert which has me totally confused; coming from a very dysfunctional home, groomed to fail, I am in the process of sorting out what is truly me and what is garbage. I have a relationship with Jesus and am learning more about what that looks like every day. I have many struggles but I strongly desire to discover more about who I am in God’s eyes and learning about Jesus does that for me like nothing else. This blog is for my journey and has no limits. I plan to have the time of my life.

  1. I’m here to say thank you so much for following my blog! I love the way you write, so transparent and real…just the way it should be between brothers and sisters in the Lord. We’re all on this journey, together, growing in our understanding of who we are in Jesus. I don’t have it all together, yet, either! I’m an abuse survivor, too. My past includes recovering from legalism, cults, and leaving the institutional church to find new freedom in Christ. I’m looking forward to exploring your blog and getting to know you better ♥.

    • Thank you so much for the kind words. I really related with some of your posts, especially the one about forgiveness (I think I “liked” it). Very similar to an institution me and my husband left a year and a half ago. When we first left it felt so isolating, I felt like I had been cut off by my family all over again. But the unity of Christ cannot be broken by the will of man. There is a great beauty in finding His church and His kingdom. I’m looking forward to it too. 🙂
