I am a simple wife, mama, soap-maker and Jesus-lover, living deep in the Appalachian hills of Southeastern Ohio. I love community and solitude, reading and writing, making art and traveling (in fact, I met my husband traveling the country over 20 years ago). I am a collector of rocking chairs, whimsical tiaras, golden memories, sacred moments, and well-worn Bibles. I love a gentle breeze and bark on trees, and the way a good sunset can take your breath away if you let it.
And I love my family! They are my most-favorite people in the world. I picked up this incredibly adorable hitch-hiker back in 1997, when we were both just 18 year old kids. And to this day, he is my best friend on earth! We also have 3 unbelievably amazing and loving sons, and can’t even believe how blessed we are to be able to call these young men our own!
But most of all I am head-over-heels for Jesus! I am passionate about living my one life well, so that others will see how blazing-glorious He is, and how He makes majesty out of mayhem, transforms our brokenness into gorgeous mosaics, and how lavishly He loves. And I am passionate about polishing His Image in everyone I meet, so that when they look in the mirror, they can see the natural, intrinsic worth bestowed on them by their Maker.
