I'm going to be honest: I'm terrible at writing about me. Anytime I'm asked, I quickly think of a hundred things I could say but exclude about 99 of them. What's important? What isn't? What applies? What doesn't? Is that too much information or not enough?

So, to make it easier on myself (and you, let's be honest), here are ten things "about me", aka - the first ten things that came to mind.

  1. I love Jesus the most. I accepted Christ into my life at 18 and I haven't looked back since. Don't get me wrong - I've tried to. But Jesus loves me too much to let me.
  2. I married my college sweetheart in 2014. We met and married while we were still in college, and boy, have we come a long way since then.
  3. I'm a stay-at-home mom (yes, that was your cue to bring me coffee). We have two daughters, Lilli and Laila (not twins - there's a four year age difference!). We have one baby girl in Heaven, Linley. We lost her during my first trimester, and we very much value her life. 
  4. I'm a law student turned writer (read more HERE). While I started out freelancing for various companies and businesses, I now write fiction novels. Although it's hard to find nowadays, all of my books are clean, without any vulgarity or X-rated scenes. Check them out HERE.
  5. We are currently fixing up a fixer-upper. We bought an old farmhouse (built in 1900) in the condition you'd expect it to be. We're living in the chaos, and loving, mostly, every minute of it.
  6. I'm incredibly, incredibly shy to strangers, but I'm very willing to be anyone's friend. It just takes me a minute to warm up to you. 😊
  7. I'm all about spreading encouragement. I was intensely bullied all throughout school, and instead of being a bully in return, I've taken those years of hurt and channeled them into being the person that makes everyone feel like a someone.
  8. I've always been the girl with a book in her hands. When I was younger, I'd read in the grocery store as my mom shopped (she constantly told me to watch where I was going), I'd read in our backyard on the wooden swing, and I was known to sneak away to get lost in a good book. Now, I read anytime my busy schedule allows. Literally anytime.
  9. I'm very passionate about wellness. Not just physical wellness, but spiritual, mental, and emotional, as well. You'll find bits of that on my social media and my blog.  
  10. Last but not least, I am someone who always strives to be transparent. I'm a firm believer that meaningful connections could cure a lot in this world, and I'll talk to you about just about anything. I think we go through everything for a reason, and what good does it do if we don't own it? 
Whew. Are you still with me? That took me a while. I hope these ten things gave you some insight into the girl behind the blog and didn't make you yawn in the process.
