Thanks for stopping by! I wish we could meet in person. I’d love to know what brings you here and how I can be a good friend and prayer warrior in your life! Please feel free to comment on any posts you read or send me a note through my Connect page. I’d love to get to know you!

This is a place for encouragement and hope.You’ll find I write about the God of hope, and my prayer is Romans 15:13, that He would fill each one of us with joy and peace in believing, that we might abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit! My desire is to daily become more wholly His, that He would have my whole heart as I pursue a more surrendered, intimate and life-producing relationship with Jesus. I pray this is a place where together we can learn to rest in God’s grace to love Jesus more, draw nearer to Him, journey deeper in Him, believe bigger and live freer! Encountering God in the pages of His word is one of the greatest ways to know Him and hear His voice for every practical and impossible need we have today. God is real, and His word is relevant for marriage, parenting, friendships, hope, faith, trust, grieving, healing, believing and growing. I have personally witnessed the Lord deliver me from bulimia, alcoholism and a whole slew of bad decisions. He has saved my marriage, blended my family and miraculously altered our circumstances, so I believe everything He says in His word! Any time you visit, I want you to leave knowing Him more, not me. I want you to follow Jesus, not me.

When I have time to write, I often dedicate those minutes and hours to Bible study lessons I am teaching for women’s Bible study, retreats and events, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for new blog posts. But when I do blog, you’ll find those posts here. If it’s easier for you to subscribe than check back, you can subscribe to the right and receive emails when there’s something new.

A little about me…


I am a stay- and work-at-home mom of one teenage and three young adult kids, one of whom is married, so I’m a mother-in-law, too, and we’re expecting our first grandbaby! My husband of 22 years and I live in Texas, where we run our family-owned and operated custom home building business. We are loud and crazy, together learning to fall completely in love with Jesus and each other.

My life consists of early morning hours tucked away in the comfy chair in my office, alone with the Lord and without distraction. Well, that’s if you don’t count JJ and Gucci, my fur babies who constantly serves as a welcome interruption of cuteness. If I’m going to write at all, that’s when it happens. And I LOVE to write about God’s word, His truth and its absolute relevance and power in our lives. It is a message that burns like fire in my bones! 

JJ my distraction.

(This is JJ. Yes, someone needs to clean his face!

I try to exercise, which doesn’t always happen. I try to eat and cook healthy meals, which doesn’t always happen! I do love to cook, but I don’t share recipes here. I love fashion and shopping and hair and everything girly, fitness and health and reading. For all that, let’s hook up on social media!

I do hope you come back so we can be friends! May the Lord bless and keep you, make His face to shine upon you and give you peace!

Hugs and blessings!
