Hey, I’m so glad you dropped by! I thought I’d share a little bit about me to help us get to know each other better.
First off, I’ve been married to my husband Dwayne for 25 years!
Doesn’t he look young there? lol We have been blessed with 5 children which is a miracle since I was once told I could probably never have children.
They are all a little older now so it’s hard getting everyone together for a family photo.
Fun facts about me not everyone knows: I LOVE CHOCOLATE!! Well, anyone who knows me knows that lol. I play the piano and I like to draw and paint. I hunt and fish with my family and last year I took up bowhunting! We also started camping last year and I highly recommend it as a way to relax and spend fun time together.
I love Christian music and Third Day is my favorite band. I like other kinds of music as well, some country and 80’s rock (seriously the best time to be a teenager)
I’ve worked as a social worker in healthcare for over 20 years and originally started this blog to talk about healthcare issues and help people navigate those crazy waters. However, the more I started writing I realized that more than anything I want to help people with other things as well.
Let’s face it, sometimes life is just plain hard. I hope to share some help, hope and words of encouragement with everyone who finds my little space on the internet.
Like most of you, I’ve been through some S.T.U.F.F. Stuff that makes you laugh until your stomach is sore and you are in tears, stuff that makes you so happy you think your heart will explode and then some stuff that brings you to your knees and rips your heart out. I’m pretty sure that’s called life and we have all been there.
In all of these moments, I’ve learned that God is there. He has always been there even when I didn’t feel His presence or see Him working. It is this firsthand knowledge and faith I want to share with others. Life is gonna happen. Good and bad. It doesn’t matter if we are ready for the things that happen to us or not.
A few things I have experienced are God’s never ending love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and presence. I hope to be able to share this with you as well.
I have a spot on my site for prayer requests. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer and I am happy to pray for you at any time!
I hope you enjoy this little blog and until next time, have a very blessed day!
