I am a proud born and bred Texan who has also lived in other parts of the country such as North Carolina and Kentucky, but got back to Texas as fast as I could! I have been married 18 years and have two teenage boys that make life an adventure everyday, depending on their mood.
It's true that time certainly does fly when you are having fun and I guess I am having way too much because life sometimes feels like a whirlwind.
But, through it all God has taught me so many life lessons and pulled me out of some pretty dark pits. So much so, that I can't keep quiet about what he's done in my life and I can't wait to share the hope God has given me. Life is not about surviving but thriving. Thriving through marriage and mommy hood, thriving on the mountains of prosperous times and thriving in the middle of anxiety, thriving through the messes life gives us and thriving in the calling God gives us.
Life isn't easy and that's why we need each other, ladies. To talk with, pray with, and be encouraged by. Gone are the days we are to look down upon or judge one another. We are all in this together. Together is a much better place to be, than alone.
I have a BS in Human Services and Psychology, worked in juvenile criminal justice and currently manage a faith based non profit in the Dallas, Texas area helping women in crisis. Through this blog you might see a little bit of my heart and love for God, mixed with my opinions on marriage, being the mother of teenagers, mental health, loss, friendship, moving, and so much more.
Join me on the journey!
