Life is But a Weaving 
Corrie Ten Boom (The Tapestry Poem)

My life is but a weaving 
Between my God and me. 
I cannot choose the colors 
He weaveth steadily. 
Oft' times He weaveth sorrow; 
And I in foolish pride 
Forget He sees the upper 
And I the underside. 
Not 'til the loom is silent 
And the shuttles cease to fly 
Will God unroll the canvas 
And reveal the reason why. 
The dark threads are as needful 
In the weaver's skillful hand 
As the threads of gold and silver 
In the pattern He has planned 
He knows, He loves, He cares; 
Nothing this truth can dim. 
He gives the very best to those 
Who leave the choice to Him.

I am married to a wonderful man with a beautiful testimony. He is articulate, charismatic, loving, humble, kind.. the greatest husband and father that I have ever had the priviledge to know in my lifetime. He is also a Minister of the gospel.
In 2016, we dropped everything and moved our family two hours away to live on campus at a Bible College in Western North Carolina. My husband is currently working toward his degree in Pastoral studies, and all six of us are learning to live a life of ministry, in His service. I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve God in such a great capacity.


I am a stay-at-home Mommy to four beautiful blessings.

Lacey is our oldest and my high schooler. She enjoys painting, dancing, music and being near the ocean.
Callie is in 4th grade. She loves animals with all of her heart, especially horses. She also loves reading, art and playing the piano.

   Hudson is my 1st grader and our oldest son. He loves books, and also loves sports. He's a cool kid with a personality that its way bigger than he is!
   Sawyer is the baby of the family. He turned 3 this past summer. He loves to run and enjoys super heroes, and its a little clone of his Daddy.

   Another thing I should mention. I'm a bit old fashioned. I like old photographs, small moments, and faded memories. I have a love/hate relationship with my smartphone and social media. I'm very protective of the privacy of my family. I am very intentional about protecting that- sometimes to a point that I seem overwhelming. I apologize in advance, and thought I should at least forewarn you.
It's all those little quirks that make me who I am. I enjoy writing and reading, and love home schooling my children. I'm a huge fan of classic literature, and my weakness is frappes. I'm a curriculum junkie and love to try new things. I'm introverted and slightly socially awkward, but I do love people and love being around others. I enjoy working with and mentoring young women, and I also have a deep love for photography. I enjoy science fiction and football season. I enjoy quiet time and space, but honestly never get it so I don't require it (we currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment, my family of six.. that's right!) I love and appreciate good food- but I'm not a very good cook, and I'm praying that is something God will help me to learn to be! I'm laid back, easy to get along with, and enjoy the beach more than any place in the world. I love my family.. fiercely and passionately, and I live this life with a lot of conviction about me- because that's who I am, and I love that about me. He made me that way.
I hope someone can find some inspiration here, or at least appreciate the fact that I let my vulnerability down long enough to share. If your'e reading, I love you.. really I do.. because again- that's just who I am. I love people. A lot.

Thank you for reading, I look forward to getting to know you... may God bless you!!!
