About Me

Pretty much, I am just one of those people you run across everyday that likes coffee and chocolate, my husband, raising our daughter, photographing the world and those in it, backyard chickens, traveling (especially to the beach), instant cameras, volkswagen beetles and campfires. How typical! Well…not really. And the same for you – these little commonalities make us who we are, but it’s not who we are. Sooooo about me? A daughter of the most High King, saved by grace through faith, an engineer, photographer and blogger, a visual poet,  a lover of cookbooks and not following their directions, a non-DIY-er, a peace-maker and probably a lot more but it might get boring. And of course, I love chocolate, coffee, my husband and my daughter – but not necessarily that order  ;)

I have a verse that has brought, literally, life to me…

Mark 10:27: Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

If you believe this, you will flourish! Flourishing is growing and it is not overnight. It does begin with a choice so that is my hope for you – to choose to flourish (not fail). It’s ok if you do fail. What I mean by fail is not doing anything…stagnant. Growing and flourishing can be painful but failure to do nothing is moreso. Some days the world is unstoppable. Jesus left the words below for just those days…

John 16:32-33 “A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

I sure haven’t accomplished everything I want in this life and my purpose ahead is often muddled. It makes you feel alone when you lose heart and can’t see where you are going. This blog is to help maintain focus, find and flourish in our God-given purpose and be a resource (or refuge?) to those who seek these things. Be in touch as I begin this medley of life, photography and the pursuit of purpose and we will flourish! I love to hear stories of encouragement but also, am here to encourage you.
