I am a follower of Jesus Christ first and foremost. I am also a wife (since December 2007) to Michael and a mom to 2 little boys (Cale and Gabe) who were born on May 16th, 2011 and July 24th, 2012. We also have a baby (our first pregnancy) waiting for us in heaven. My husband is a church planter and works various other jobs and I teach online counseling classes for a university and have a heart for mentoring teenage girls. Needless to say, we are busy! But… we love it… most of the time. In this blog, I like to share what I am learning in hopes that it will also help you as we go through life together! I have had many experiences that have and continue to… DEFINE me. Also, as a family, we are hoping for financial freedom (living independently) and I will reflect on some of the ways we are working towards this. Hope you enjoy it!
