I’m a southern girl who was raised in a small town in Georgia that has one red light and two grocery stores.   Though small and seemingly insignificant to the rest of the world, Hogansville will always be my home.  Most of my family still lives there, so I make my way back there from time to time.

I’m a mother, blessed with a beautiful little boy who has  taught me how to look at the world through a child’s eyes again.  And I’ve really missed the view.

I talk more than I listen, but I am working on that. I sometimes speak without thinking..o.k. maybe most of the time..but I digress.

I’m married to my best friend Christian.  We’ve had the privilege of seventeen years together, and I can say without hesitation that I love him even more now. Cause the truth is those hard roads make for soft hearts.

I’m a Christian who tries very hard to live it out rather than speak it as a truth that I’ve never applied to my own life. I don’t particularly like church “lingo” because most people throw out the words but don’t take those words to heart.

I’ve just started moving into a very different season in my life, leaving a career in nursing to pursue a new field as a licensed mental health counselor.  I’m a graduate student, with just three classes to go.  And because I was born a “doer,” I also operate a modest Etsy boutique which is filled up with many of my most prized vintage finds.  It will be closing later on this year because I want to be free to complete the book I started writing many years ago.  Lord willing, it will be finished by next summer.  It’s called “The Road Home.”

Thanks for stopping by!
