I have no idea what I am doing most of the time: in writing, in applying makeup, in teaching 7th grade, in life. I make a lot of mistakes. I fumble through my days with the grace of a sovereign God and a #hometeam that loves me in my hot mess moments.
I love the Lord with all of my being. My intimacy with the Lord is messy and real and raw. I feel all the feelings deeply and Jesus has to meet me there EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. His grace is sufficient and every hour of the day I am learning to walk that in confidence. My heart is messy and I overthink but He has the power to take a heart laced with insecurity, doubts, and fears and redeem it for His glory. Jesus changes everything, His life and death mean everything. His Word is what I based everything on.
Most people don’t have a job that is life-giving and I am so blessed to have two. My career is to teach grammar and writing to 7th graders but it is so much more than that. I teach the power of voice and perspective, that everyone matters, and how to be successful outside the classroom. My summer days are spent by Table Rock Lake discipling college-aged girls and cooking meals for hungry campers. The days are long but the work is worth it.
My heart is for connection and bringing people around a dinner table. I want to live and breathe hospitality to the point that when people leave my home, they are refreshed. I try to create spaces that are welcoming and comfortable. My heartbeat is for women to connect, no matter their stage or lot in life.
I’m deeply single and the only one left in my circle who is, so sometimes I write about that. I love to cook, so sometimes I post recipes. I love the Lord, so most of the time I write about that.
