Also follow me on:

Like many women, I have various titles...wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend…or the fun ones like dishwasher, laundress, maid, cook, dog groomer, hair stylist, seamstress…the list could continue indefinitely!

There is often this juggling act which I try to perform so that I feel like I am in control of it all, until my arms get tired or I get frustrated and the juggling ceases. It is only when I stop controlling and stop being the only god of my life that I truly begin to live instead of exist…to embrace the journey instead of endlessly chasing my fictional tail.

Yet I have learned so much from my many mistakes, from the twists and turns that life has thrown onto my path. Wisdom from the past, wisdom from this present but ultimately wisdom from One who knows it all. Daily I am learning how to let God determine my path and let Him be the Driver of this vehicle I call my life. When He drives, life works. When I drive, I get frustrated with myself and others.

So welcome to my journey! Laugh with me, cry with me, and be amazed with me. I hope to share the ups and downs, the joy and the pain, the pretty and the downright ugly. The fact I am even alive and the struggles I literally and physically survived which became the most humbling miracles that still make me say, “Wow, God. You did that for me?!?!”

So hop on board and join me on a journey of balance, love, relationship and wisdom. And…that original list even includes the title of Pastor’s wife. However, I am unlike any pastor’s wife whom you have met before. Not because I am special, but because God has designed this life of mine to not fit any mold. He likes to challenge me to do stuff like breaking the chains, knocking down the boundaries, getting down to the truth and the real things we need to talk about. No religion, just truth. No fake crap, just real. So…are you up for the ride?
