Welcome! I am so happy you stopped by and decided to spend some time getting to know us!

Headshot of Elizabeth - This Little Home of Mine

I am a pastor’s daughter, and I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am that I grew up with godly parents who have always inspired me to reach out to others.

I accepted their Savior as mine when I was a little girl and knew from a young age that I wanted my life to have purpose.

I wanted to give my life to serving other people.

My parents encouraged me to serve in church ministry and also with a children’s organization that they worked with for several years, and looking back, it is clear that God was establishing a pathway in my life that would lead to my serving as a teacher.

I loved serving as a classroom teacher, but when our oldest child was born, I transitioned to home!

How am I using my love of teaching these days? I’m homeschooling my kids!

Our family’s journey is something I love sharing with all of you!

My days are busy and oftentimes exhausting…I struggle with being patient, and I oftentimes find myself substituting coffee for sleep…but this life I’m living is a dream come true for me.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to commit my days to being a wife and mom, and I am even more thankful for my Savior who provides me with everything I need to accomplish the task.

I am not enough, but He is.

In this space, I hope you will be encouraged and inspired to seek Him.

Whether you are gathering ideas for teaching your kids at home, searching for a new recipe to cook for your family, or curious about our life with Down Syndrome or our journey to adoption, I am so glad you are here.

Much Love,


He has watched over our journey and always, always been faithful. Deuteronomy 2:7
