Thank you for dropping by today! I hope you will be blessed by what you find – and come back often!
I am happily married to my amazing husband, Buddy, and a busy mom of three and Mimi to one. My youngest is 4 yrs. old (Austin) and my oldest (Christie) just turned! There's a 18 yr. old son (Dallas) in the middle. Yes, I have 3 only children – born in my 20s, 30s and 40s – proof that God has a sense of humor!
I'm a graphic artist by profession, but my heart's desire is to encourage women. Specifically, women who have endured heartache, made bad decisions or are struggling as single moms. God has a plan for all of us. And he offers forgiveness and love. Not too long ago, I was one of those women who needed encouragement.
As a young woman, I made mistakes and felt the sting of consequences. As a single mom, I faced daily challenges raising my children. I could barely forgive myself for my poor choices, how could God forgive me? I was sure I wasn't 'good' enough for God to love me. Thankfully, he loves us because of who we are – not what we do. "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jer. 29:11)
My journey has brought me to many places – both peaks and valleys – but the place I'm most excited about is here - now. All we have is today. Jesus said, "Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" (Matt. 6:27)
So today I choose to trust him. He never left me. I was the one who moved away from him. His "grace is sufficient" and "his power is made perfect in (my) weakness." (2 Cor. 12:9)
My blogs will be posts of encouragement and glimpses into my faith walk. I pray that God will be glorified and you will be encouraged to move forward into God's plan for YOU. As we travel together, I would love to hear from you.

May God bless you – TODAY!
