If you are new to my site and never heard of me, this is a great place to start. I’m so happy to meet you. I want to be a resource and help to YOU, more than I want you to be impressed by ME. I believe God gifted all of us with unique talents and passions. It’s been fun to discover a few of mine and use them to support my fellow moms, parents and women in this journey called life. What’s the point of great ideas if we just hoard them to ourselves?
If you had a great recipe that your kids gobbled up every night, you better share it with me! Speaking of, you should know that I hate to cook. So, you’ll never ever get a great recipe from me. What I love to share – ideas, resources and inspiration for families. I will offer very practical and very doable recipes on bringing faith to life for your families. That doesn’t mean they will always work for you or that my family always get it right.
It simply means I believe Jesus is worth talking about and pointing our kids back to His grace and love every day. And HAVE FUN! It’s a good thing to love and serve – and to be loved. Let’s do what matters most in the midst of the chaos.

My Journey In A Timeline
2011 – I launched my first site and first two products ABC Scripture Cards (still selling in the shop – over 25,000 sold and as seen on The View) and My Lil Money Jars (now a DIY post and in my book).
2011 – A simple blog post about Christmas Kindness went viral now is a movement around the world for families to light up their communities with kindness – there are hundreds of free ideas right here for you – Light Em Up Acts. Please use and share with your schools and churches. It’s what it’s for!
2012 – We moved to Orlando from Atlanta – story here.

I have had the incredible opportunity to travel and speak as my schedule allows. I enjoy guest writing and appearing on podcasts, but my favorite spot in the world is with my own family so I have to work hard on saying “no” and picking which are the best choices for this season.
Here’s a little more about my personal background and family over here.
Don’t ever forget that parenting is not all up to you. There is a God that loves your family more than you. He made them. He made you as their parent. You aren’t a mistake. They weren’t a mistake. And He can and will do great things through all of you. Believe it and march forward in the confidence of Christ.
