About my family: I know a lot of people say this is cliche husband truly is my best friend. Jason and I have been married almost 15 years (whoa!) and we’re smack-dab in the middle of raising three kids. Kaeleigh is almost 15, Mack is 13, and Piper is soon to be 11. I can’t talk about my family without mentioning our dachshund Hershel, who has me wrapped around his little paw.

In the Bible, I relate strongly to: Peter. He denies Jesus three times, but is completely heartbroken after the fact, once he’s able to see past his fear and sinful nature. Jesus only visited a choice few when he briefly returned, and Peter was one of them because Jesus wanted Peter to know he was loved and forgiven. How many times have I denied Jesus, only to grieve and beg his forgiveness later? And how many times has He made it a point to show me his love and forgiveness? I don’t even know the answers to those questions but I’m forever in awe of a savior who also forgets the number of my transgressions.

In my spare time, I enjoy: Being cozy at home with my family. Playing games and laughing until my face hurts with our best friends. Creating fun, whimsical, or pretty artwork...especially designing jigsaw puzzles. But not just designing, I also love assembling jigsaw puzzles!

My favorite quote: “We’re going to have to let the truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us.” - Beth Moore

My most heart-felt prayer is: To be completely pliable, to love as much like Jesus as humanly possible, and to get to a point where my faith is based completely in God’s truth and not distracted by my feelings.
