About Me

I am a mother to 7 beautiful children and wife to one seriously supportive and patient man.  We met while jogging in the rain 17 years ago and have weathered many storms since.

My oldest daughter is 15 and learning to drive.  Then a 13 year old daughter whose very being drips with creativity.  My 11 year old son is kind and conscientious.  Then a 9 year old daughter who was born to wear glitter and plan parties.  My 7 year old son is an explorer in every sense you can imagine.  The 4 year old daughter loves all things horse and rides around on her imaginary ponies.  My 20 month old son is an adorable, destructive, shining light who keeps us smiling.  Did I mention that I love children?  I homeschool my children and love being around them and learning with them.

I love all things creative and hope to show others that we are all born with an innate desire to be creative in some way.   I enjoy sharing my love for motherhood and the ways I find peace within our active home full of individuals.  I love people and I have been blessed throughout my life to be surrounded by the very best kind.  I am drawn to bright colors, polka dots, folk music, antiques, sunshine, dirt roads, rodeos,  and twinkling lights.  I work in many creative mediums such as quilting, painting, watercolor, embroidery, writing, photography, memory keeping, leathercraft,  and picking through garage sales.

I’ve walked through a few intense and painful struggles in my life and I am here to share about the journey, the joy, the healing and the love.  I’ve found ultimate joy and peace in family life and motherhood.  I love to give encouragement for families and for mothers.  I believe that parenthood is intended to be joyful and fun and peaceful.

At a critical point in my journey I connected with Brave Girls Club and have become a Certified Soul Restoration Instructor.  I love teaching this curriculum and hope you will come see what it is all about!
