A New Website & a Giveaway for an iPad Mini!

Welcome home!

Come on in and make yourself comfortable.  We live life on the casual side up north.  I’m so happy you’ve come to take a look around.   I consider it an honor to have you.

This site is a culmination of who I am – all that has been woven into the tapestry of my life: my past, my present, my passions, my unique view of the world according to my disposition and experience, my family, my geographic location. It’s all here somewhere – from practical to-do’s, to fun ideas, to recipes, to how to deal with hurts, to thoughts about life and family. You can see every one of my posts on my pinterest board.

My earnest prayer is that somehow it would be a blessing to you. Even if just in a small way. This is my mustard seed. 

Here is what I know. Each one of us has a unique tapestry that is unique to only ONE. You. There may be some threads you don’t like. Me either. But they are there for a reason – they have made us who we’ve become and have led us to the place we are now. We get to choose what we do with this culmination of who we are.

So let me encourage you to plant your mustard seed, too. It may be at work, at church, at a non-profit, in another country, or right at your dinner table. Plant deeply and watch God breathe more life into that seed than you could ever imagine….
