Foster Care & Free Falling

Practical. Durable. Gender neutral. Words I didn't dream of when imaging our future kids rooms. When I look at these bunk beds, although l do feel excitement, I honestly also have a fair amount of "how did this happen?". My heart has struggled immensely since this journey has become more and more real. Because by … Continue reading Foster Care & Free Falling


Our Foster Care journey: Q&A

We finished training! I forgot what it was like to sit "in class", let alone for 30 hours over the course of 4 days! Whew. Thankfully, the training was so incredible and 100% engaging. We feel more equipped and more unprepared...if that makes any sense at all! . I personally have been wrestling with lots of what … Continue reading Our Foster Care journey: Q&A

I look back on our wedding pictures as the memories get more distant and see two very young people. You can see the innocence in our eyes, and I … Continue reading 4 Years & An Update


Choosing Joy

Rejoice always. {1 Thessalonians 5:16} I love the simplicity of this verse. Rejoice. Always. It really is that simple. But honestly...some days I really don't feel like rejoicing. I don't always feel joy. Day to day God blesses me in so many ways and I love what he is doing in my marriage, in my church, … Continue reading Choosing Joy


Finding God in the Busy Times

It's been a while, blogging friends! This summer I did a few posts for The Loved Bible Project, but other than that I haven't been around much. Life has just been...busy! How do you find God in the busy times? I don't even feel like I'm in a busy season anymore. If you stay in … Continue reading Finding God in the Busy Times
