I am a daughter of the King, fully forgiven and fully loved.

Married for almost 19 years, my husband and I make our home in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Our home is bursting with life and often quite loud as we have six children: three girls and three boys. Two of our boys are from Haiti, grafted into our family by God in August of 2016.

My days are spent in the stimulating and rewarding pursuit of homeschooling and keeping our homefront running smoothly.

I find special delight basking in the morning sun—strong cup of coffee in hand—as I renew my heart and mind in the Word of God.

During our afternoon quiet times, when my younger children are spread throughout the house in their places of rest and alone time, I love to kick back and relax with a good book!

In this space I hope to share my journey of making haste slowly as well as to bring insight and encouragement to those who find themselves on the paths of motherhood, homeschooling, and adoption.

Thanks for stopping by!

May these Words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.  – Psalm 19:14
