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.

In some way, I wanted to serve 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.

Why in the world I entered college as a Psychology major, I will never understand. It was clear that my heart was in teaching, and I quickly changed my focus to elementary education. A soft nudge from my mother helped to get me on the right track.

I did enjoy the Psychology classes that my education major called for, and I must admit, the information definitely came in handy during my years in the classroom. In fact, I’ve decided that all teachers need a minor in Psych and another minor in Social Work – but all of that is for another conversation.

I am now out of the classroom and serving my hubby and four little ones full time at home. How am I using my love of teaching these days? I’m homeschooling my little ones! As a family, we have been enjoying learning at home for several years now.

This 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 little ones at home, searching for a new recipe to cook for your family, eager for inspiration to get organized, or curious about my favorite money-saving tips, I am so glad you are here, and I look forward to connecting with you often in this space.

Much Love,
