My mission is to create a space to inspire and encourage people to live for a higher purpose, living life from the perspective of victory.
The eagle represents a life of freedom and overcoming, seeing things from heavens point of view. A mindset that reminds us that no matter the storms of life we rise. The storms that threaten to bring us down become the source of momentum that propels us forward. Eagles use the storm and so does God!
Swans are a good reminder that no matter how out of place you might feel, no matter what your present reality seems to be saying, there is hope. The thing that has set you apart or may have made you to feel like the “ugly duckling”, might just be the very compass that points you to where you truly belong!
I’m artistic by nature, I love to create things. I’m also a dyi junky, I’d rather buy it cheap and doctor it up or take what I have and make it what I want. Both traits I inherited from my mother, the master of all things cheap.
I like reading, mostly of the biblical, personal growth and christian encouragement variety. I’m a worshiper, I love singing my heart song to God. Song is one of the many ways I speak to Him and He speaks to me. I enjoy playing piano and currently I’m learning the guitar. I love running, it is my biggest outlet, brings such strength to me mentally, physically and spiritually. It is the place where God has met me in some of the most miraculous ways.
I’m a deep thinker, probably a little bit of an introvert by nature but I am breaking out of my shell more and more. However, I still enjoy my quiet time and the stillness that it brings, it is in those moments that God can speak into the depths of my soul. On a lighter note, I probably have an appreciation for quiet more than most because I have seven children!
Mother of Many
I’ve been married to my husband Isaac for 17 years. Together we have 7 children, 3 boys and 4 girls. Our eldest being 19 and the youngest is 1.
This is a picture of me and my two youngest children, Nehemiah and Annaleigha. Nehemiah aka Nene, keeps me on my toes with his big witty grin and busy antics. Annaleigha is quiet and calm, very easy to please and rarely complains. This quiet, easy to please nature of hers has truly been a God sent. When she was just 3 months old my brother had a brain aneurysm and passed away. It has been one of the most difficult seasons of my life trying to get over the loss of him and find a sense of normalcy again. Through the days of ups and downs, energy and lack there of, Annaleigha was just the easiest baby.
I love drinking coffee although coffee doesn’t always love me, so I’ve learned to love tea a lot more. My personal favorite replacement for coffee is a white chocolate chia tea, I highly recommend it!
Finding time to spend with God is such a huge part of my life, I literally have to have it. I’ve become fairly proficient at inviting God into my daily routine, its amazing how God can make messages out of daily messes. A house bustling with little people, heaps of laundry, bathrooms to clean, dishes to wash, lunches to pack, arguments to settle, errands to run, all this and more on daily can tend to steal the daylight hours as I’m sure most of you know. It is in the middle of life’s messes that I hear Gods messages.
