The Long Version
How do you even begin to share all of your experiences in 800 words or less? You can't ... which is why I'm writing a book. 😏
Suffice it to say, I've lived a lot of life. I've done some crazy, unique things and I've endured a lot of pain. Looking back on my life I can see how God was in all of it.
But it was motherhood that brought me closer to him.
I had my first daughter at the ripe age of 30, and while nursing her one night, I felt God's love for me for the first time. It was so tangible - how had I missed it before?! As I sat there in the moonlight, I finally understood how much I was loved and adored by God.
This is why I feel so passionate about supporting moms. Motherhood is a critical time of life, but because it's so grueling and often thankless we tend to become cynical or begrudge the journey, which causes us to miss the many spiritual moments God has for us. My goal is to encourage and uplift you so you can experience more of God in your life!
That being said, I believe everyone is on their own journey.
You can't visit the inner jungles of Tana Toraja (as I have!) without realizing how seemingly different yet connected we all are. Every mother has a special quality she brings to her parenting, but I believe that if we can work toward love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (those "fruits of the spirit" in Galatians 5) we will discover there's a lot more that unites us than separates us in motherhood.
So wherever you're at today, welcome.
This is a safe space for you, and I'm so glad you're here! I sincerely hope we get to know each other as we adventure on this crazy journey of motherhood, life, and faith.
