Ellie Grace

  We were going to do maternity pictures on Sunday,” I said as Jesse and the nurse helped me back into my hospital room. I had just seen Ellie for the first time since she was delivered via emergency C-section 6 hours earlier at 3:20 pm Friday, December 8th, 2017. She was 6 ½ weeks … More Ellie Grace


Just returning to the place that let me have voice in some of the toughest months of my life. Just for a short post. A quick thought.   “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬ Hospitality … More Warmth

all that’s left

I’m at that point where I’m wondering if I still know how to do this. I feel like I’m pulling out an old rusty tool trying to fit it into my hand like it used to so naturally. Hey there. It’s been a while. There’s a pause in the rush and it’s time to refresh … More all that’s left


“In the beginning, God created…” Genesis 1:1. He willed so we are. Just that one thing. Nothing done on our part. We simply became because He willed us into being – and for an illogical reason.
