Hi!  🙂 I’m so glad you are here! Here is a little about me. To begin with, I am in love with Jesus my savior, and dearest friend!  I am also happily married to my other best friend and high school sweetheart. (He is such a great daddy and husband! 🙂 )

I am totally blessed to be mom to five wonderful children from college age to first grade. Our littlest one is at home with Jesus in heaven and we anxiously await a happy reunion with him there. I have had the privilege of homeschooling our children and have truly loved it! .

In addition to eating a lot of chocolate chips, :), I love reading books, writing poems, and making art.

I am taking a variety of online art classes with Carla Sonhein, Diane Culhane, Val Webb and Lynn Whipple, and will be posting my assignments here each week- (good and bad 😉 – My goal is to be consistent and post!) I will also be linking with Holley Gerth, Bonnie Gray and Susan B. Mead on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The main goal of these weekly posts is practice. Practice painting, writing, and showing up- Practice not caring so much about the results and what other’s think- practice showing up, messing up and being real- practice trusting God to be my everything-

 Thank you for joining me on this journey towards joy-I truly believe that the best is yet to come. Let’s press on –higher up, farther in, forward, upward, towards more of Him! 

Blessings, You are very loved!
