Unexpected is the word that best describes the journey I am on. As I follow God, He constantly surprises me and leads me into things I would have never dreamed imaginable.
As of this writing (2019), I am a pastor’s wife and an old mom to three young kids who I educate classically in my home. I never set my mind on homeschooling, but when our first child experienced language delays, God set us on a path to discover that home education is not what we thought it was and is the right fit for our family. We endeavor to cultivate a lifestyle of learning in everything we do. In the fringe hours I work part-time as a writer for a small B2B marketing + creative group, and support marketing and communication activities for my church and other ministries.
I’m an enneagram 4w3, ENFP, and my Strengths Finder is Connectedness, Communications, Strategic, Maximizer, and Woo. Professionally, I love collaborating and working with teams and individuals to help clarify their messages to accomplish their purpose. Personally, I am very curious and love discovering new things. I feel deeply, love wholeheartedly, and I am incapable of small talk. I love the local church and want to help every Christ-follower walk in the good work that God put them on this green earth to do, for His glory and the good of others.
Playlists are my love language. I try to cook and eat Paleo as much as possible. Mexican food is on my menu more than any other flavor. Avocados=Life. I love hosting people in our home and going overboard in the kitchen. My hobbies include planning trips to Disney World for my friends and tending to my tiny home garden on the back patio of my Tennessee home.
In a previous life I lived in worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, led communications for multi-million dollar non-profit organization, and coached influencers on how to leverage social media to do more good. Before becoming a mom, I had the privilege of traveling around the world on 7 international missions trips and have visited every continent except Australia and Antartica—but both are on my list!
I’ve been blogging since 2007, but after a long hiatus from having these three kids (in under three years!!) I am trying to get back into posting regularly. If you stick around here, you will hear me talk a lot about my faith, food, family and friends; and how we strive to live life wholeheartedly in everything we do.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
