Writing, creating yumminess from whole foods, digging in the dirt, and raising my boys and chickens and dreams, are embraced with joy. I am compelled to be outside as often as possible, blown away by my sweet baby boys, and learning to live love with my incredible (and challenging!) husband. Issues of injustice, both globally and locally, move me to tears and, hopefully, action. Conversations and questions surrounding simple living, expressions of faith, organic food, womanhood, and natural parenting, inspire and intrigue me.
I am often ovewhelmed with the vast amount of ideas and actions open for thought and application. My husband Jeremy is both cheerleader and ‘real life’ thinker for me in this regard We’re the Dreamer and the Doer; a perfect and frustrating match.
Newly in my thirties, I feel the past few years have aged me decades past. I am hungry for some sleep, healing through faith from bruises and breaks of people and words and experiences, praying for a growing family, and looking with Hope towards growth and understanding and maturity. So much has happened…yet much more needs to happen in response. Becoming. Discovering. Arriving at the next step…and the next.
I believe we are all created to do and share some very specific thoughts and actions during our earth-stay. I believe writing is this distinct expression in my own life and I continue to find energy, healing, and clarification through it. I welcome you to read and engage; question and encourage; reflect and discover. I desire my life to be a conversation, a shared journey. Through posting these words and thoughts and experiences, I’m inviting you into it.
