In this space I share my journey of “Festina lente: make haste slowly.”


First and foremost I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace through Jesus, fully forgiven, and fully loved.


My husband and I have been married for 19 years and we make our home in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

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

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

Thanks for stopping by,

~ Joelle

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
