Welcome!

Hello friend!

Thanks for stopping by. Pull up a chair and cup of your favorite and let’s talk. This is the place you will find hope. The kind of hope that helps you move forward in joy no matter your situation.

I will share my heart with you, the joyful, the hard and those spontaneous moments that put a smile on your face. I would love to hear a bit of your heart back!

I’m Mama to four and Nana to one! My sweet husband got to meet his Savior sooner than anyone expected after a one year battle with brain cancer. Just one day shy of 47 years, but we packed them full of lots of love and laughter. We filled them with homeschooling and farm living, with soccer and karate and football. We filled our home with music and the Word of God, always The Word of God!

I will be transparent with you because life is too short to be any other way. Why Bruised But Not Broken?

Because dear ones, life is hard! We are not promised a stress free, pain free life. Actually the opposite is true.

“We are pressed on every side by troubles , but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. ”
2 Corinthians 4:8-12

So let’s speak truth to each other, let’s cheer one another on through laughter and tears. Let’s choose joy!
