After graduating from college, I moved out to Portland, Oregon for an adventure. During my time in Portland, I was given an amazing opportunity to work for the church that I was involved with called Imago Dei Community. During my four years of working at Imago Dei, I poured my heart and soul into the… Continue reading Peace Like A River
I am, by nature, a people pleaser. I don’t want to inconvenience others or put more on their plate, especially if its for my benefit. Therefore, when someone asks me what it is that I want, it is sometimes difficult for me to be honest. Not long ago, I felt in my heart that God… Continue reading What Is It That You Want?
This is about the most political I will probably get on social media. And it’s not even really political, but instead of a reminder to myself of what we are called to as believers. And that is, to remember who is in charge. I have been a little distracted lately. My stomach knots every time… Continue reading Falling Into Place

Female friendships are hard. Just typing that sentence makes the anxiety pour in and my stomach turn a little. Friendships can come with emotion, competition, thick walls and not nearly enough encouragement, grace, or a listening ear. Female friendships can also be a beautiful, powerful and most needed thing that all women desire on some… Continue reading Women Friendships Are (Fill in the Blank)
I grew up a daddy’s girl. He could do anything, be anything and could say no wrong. We have home videos, pictures and loads of memories that confirm his superhero-ness, in case you have any doubts. I hung onto every word he said (probably to a fault) and thought he was the wisest man I… Continue reading Love, Your Eldest Daughter
We woke up this morning, got dressed and miraculously got out the door before 7:30am. We had things to do and family to see, but first, a quick detour so that Noah could deliver an order of salmon to a local farmer about an hour outside of Madison. Our family loves visiting this particular customer… Continue reading Want to Make a Trade?
Noah and I have always been dreamers. We have big plans, but for many reasons, very rarely have they been reachable. Lately, we are seeing that one of them actually could be a reality as we are watching some doors begin to open. We are still in the early beginnings of the dream and who… Continue reading All About Timing
