This is my little space on the internet where I wear my heart on my sleeve, where I keep it real and above all, where I hope to encourage others. I share my life with you, not because I think I’m awesome, but because I believe that life is meant to be shared. And maybe, just maybe, God will use my story, experiences and randomness to encourage you in your life.

Seeing his little fingers and toes, hearing his precious newborn noises and watching his parents love on him made Clover’s arrival seem even more real. I feel so blessed that Claudia and Joe […]
