Keeping It Real . . . 

Me: I’m a small town girl from Illinois who has known Jesus since age 7.  Even though I loved Jesus, it wasn't until age 19 that I really said yes to a true strong relationship with Him. Ever since then, my passion has been to see God’s truth come alive in people’s lives. When I am not writing you will find me trying to bake and watching action movies. Two things you will NOT find me doing is cleaning or drinking coffee!   By the end of the day, I feel good if I spent time with God and my girls, had a cookie, crossed something off my "to do" list and kissed my man.

My Man: Being married to Ryan is truly a gift from God, even though he does LOVE coffee! He is the man that encourages me to be more, to do it with excellence, and to just be me. He is my everyday superman without flying capabilities (rats!).

My Girls: We are all gifted in certain areas and having kids was not mine.  After 3 years of trying everything (from standing on our heads to being poked with lots of needles) we got pregnant with Eliana through Invitro-fertilization.  Through a similar process, we were pregnant with Abigail and Breana a year later.  I LOVE these crazy, loud, and fun girls! They are teaching me patience, servanthood and how to love God with a childlike faith.  

Well, there you have it, a quick peek into about my life. Thanks for getting to know me better! I pray that together, we can grab a hold of everything God has for us.
