In a Nutshell

This is us. 

Mike and I were married in May of 2000.  Nearly 20 years ago.    We’ve lived on both coasts and we’ve travelled the country in motorhomes just the two of us and full of kids. We’ve visited all of the states in between and have hit up a bunch of the National Parks. In between our travelling, we have been pregnant six times and have given birth to five children.  

Our family picture shows half of our children. 

I never intended to become a writer. To have a story to share that folks would be impacted by. I thought Mike and I would have a busy but quiet life. I thought our adventures would be travelling ones, but rather our travelling adventures had steamed from needing to get away as a family when we were flooded with grief… 



Life is hard and Jesus has proven himself faithful to our family when I was not faithful and covered in doubt and wondering if he even cared about us. But he has promised to be enough and he has proven in with each breath that we have taken and each morning we have faced. 

We serve a God who sees us. We serve a God who knows us. We may not know him fully yet, but he knows us and we will know him fully. One day. 

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:12
