A Square Peg in a Round Hole

I’ve thought a lot lately about how to label what it is I’m passionate about and what it is I do {in all my free time}. I landed on the term “Bridging Gaps.” What type of gaps am I trying to bridge, you may wonder. There are many kinds, but I would say the largest…

19 Years and Counting

This week my husband, Ryan, and I celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss [read: chaos]. I always thought “old” people were so dramatic when they would say “time flies” but now as a fellow “old” person I realize they were not lying! Time has flown by for us, certainly (I think the million kids and…

And a Happy New Year…

We’re already a full week into the new year – how’s 2024 treating you so far? Time flies right on by with no concern for our readiness, doesn’t it? I will admit making it through the busy holiday season as a mom of six was quite a feat. My workshop was busy with scribbling on…

What’s For Dinner?

As a mother of six, if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked, “What’s for dinner?” I could gift each of you reading this with your own personal chef. How are kids always “starving”?! And shouldn’t a Costco membership just come home with you from the hospital maternity ward or the courtroom…

Happy Book-day!

Reckless Yes is born!  It’s quite surreal when a day you never thought would happen is the day you find yourself in. Today is that day for me. The book I’ve dreamed of writing for nearly a decade is out in the world today! I’ve poured my heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into this…

A Decade of Lessons for Eternity

This is the eve of my youngest bio son’s tenth birthday! Ten years – Double Digits! It’s so strange to think it’s been nearly a full decade since I’ve carried and birthed a child. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday and in other ways it was a lifetime ago. Ethan was…

Frozen in Time

Right now, Texas is frozen solid under ice. Not the fun, fluffy snow that we could use to make a baby snow man. Just ice, brought to us by “thunder sleet,” whatever in the apocalypse that is! We’re all stuck inside our homes like characters in a snow globe. Trapped, just waiting for our freedom…

All Things New

As we begin to enter a new year with expectant hearts eagerly anticipating what 2023 will bring us, I am thankful that 2022 is concluding with new and exciting projects in the works for me! For the last nine years or so, I have wanted to write a book telling our family’s story. At the…

Let Me Ask My Manager

Could that be us? Could we become so familiar with speaking constantly to our Father that when our families and work life overwhelm us, or when we have big decisions to make, or even when people around us mistreat us and spew hate, we instinctively tap our holy hotline button and pray without ceasing? That in the big and small things of our day to day moments, we heed what the will of Christ Jesus is for us and we rejoice, pray, and give thanks in all circumstances?

Welcome to the Future

Today, my oldest son, Hayden, is 15! Monumental, sure, but also natural, for most people. We all remember turning 15, right? Wanting nothing more than the latest fashion jeans of the season, a dinner out with friends at your favorite restaurant (sans your terribly embarrassing parents, obvi) and to have your name put on the…
