Here you will have a glimpse into my sweet journey of finding true life in Christ. I hope & pray that through my life, you are blessed and encouraged to look into the eyes of Jesus where all truth, life, and fulfillment is found.
We're pregnant! We are overwhelmingly grateful for this precious gift of life growing inside right now. This is old news for most of you, but maybe for some of you - this is new news! Kalen and I have been praying for a child from our womb since day 1 of our marriage (Almost 7 years ago). You can learn more about our story Here.
I am 24 weeks along and we're expecting a precious baby girl. This momma is smitten and happy-tears grateful.
The journey has been the reward. Though it's been a hard journey, I've learned to walk so intimately with Jesus in surrender through many years of desperate prayers. Through it all I've experienced God's faithfulness and sweet nearness when the answer for many years was no. Jesus and I became so knit together in love that I could truthfully say if He never gave us a child from my womb, I would be satisfied... because HE is enough.

PSALM 33:12I cannot say that this scripture is true for the nation of America anymore.

They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inven…
It's been awhile since I have made an appearance on here. You can thank Instagram and Facebook for stealing the majority of my updating lately (total wink because it's not their fault, but mine). Every time I take a nice break from those media outlets, I find myself back here, appreciating the quiet reserve of the blogging world. There's no rush here to update, or a sense of demand to get the pictures/ thoughts up that day / moment. It's good for my soul to take periodical breaks and remind myself that life can be slow, less stimulated, and still be wonderfully enjoyable. Thank you Jesus for that!
Since it's nap time around here, I thought I'd clean up my blog (Change the theme), and give a little update on our life right now!
I don't think I've announced this on here yet, BUT -- We are on our way to ADOPTING little M (ALL THE praises and hearts possible here!)! We found that out on Feb. 15th! M's bio mom did decide to relinquis…
