I am just a simple human, trying to understand the world around me and my place in it.

I love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.

I was raised in the Disciples of Christ church, but God is leading me beyond what I’ve always known.  I joined the Traditional Catholic faith on February 18, 2017.

I am married with two kids.

I have a job to do, and bills to pay, and dinner to make, and errands to run.  And adventures to have!

I don’t know all the answers.

But I do think there is a plan.  A purpose.  A guided path for each of us.

I’m simply documenting the pieces of my path that I have uncovered so far.

I bet I’m wrong about some of it…and right about some of it.  And I bet I change my mind.  A lot.

But I’m super excited to lay out all the puzzle pieces and see what is there.  I know it will be amazing!

  1. Thank you so much for this post. I am currently experiencing many life-changing events such as yours and in rapid succession. My husband is a college baseball coach and we have 3 daughters. Courtney,10, Sydney, 8, and Sarah, 11 weeks. We just moved to a larger house to accommodate our growing family and the change at times can be overwhelming. I have always been a Christian but about 3 years ago truly gave my life to Christ and it changed my entire perspective. There are times for sure that the struggle is real but I am learning to lean into His word as well as just talk to him often
    Your post was fun to read and I enjoyed the realness of the struggle.
    Thank you for being so transparent. Looking forward to following from now on.


  2. I found your story very interesting. Well spoken too! God is most definitely in the every day miracle business. He’s transformed my life. Happy to hear He’s transformed your life as well. Wonderful blog! Pleased to have found it.

    1. Thanks, Holly! It’s always nice to hear I’m not alone in this journey of transformation. If you know others who could benefit, please feel free to share the links. I figure the more we keep the conversation going, the more people can experience His miracles!
