Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
I pray that you find encouragement here… the boldness and courage that comes from God alone to face the brokenness of this world.
A little about my family and me…
(Disclaimer: My life is not nearly as neat and tidy as these pictures may lead you to believe. There are seven of us… Use your imagination!)
– All five of our kids are “Haitian.” Yep, three are adopted — one with special needs, and two were born to us during our eight years of mission work in Haiti. (See if you can sort them out.)
– My children have and probably always will stretch me to my limits… from laundry management to lego control to love and laughter.
– I’m currently writing a memoir of our nine-year adoption process and life in Haiti. Some of God’s works just cannot be left to vague memories!
– My husband, Jarod, keeps me sane and is still teaching me about boundaries.
– He loves running, cycling, and swimming as much as I love writing and blogging. And he claims he loves me just a little bit more than I love him. I like that (but I know the truth).
– If it were up to me, I’d always be the last one to leave church or any other social function. I love to talk with others — friends or even strangers; sharing life stories and encouragement whenever possible.
I’d love to meet you!

Take courage, my friend. Hope in the Lord!
