Tea for Two.

Two more years have gone by. Emma is a blessing to our family.

The morning of her birthday, we had balloons, donuts, opened gifts, and made cupcakes.

At work, we celebrated with grandma and uncle Nathan. (grandpa was at a meeting, but she missed him because she asked where he was.) We ate pizza and opened up some great gifts.

Cousin Eli called Emma and sang Happy Birthday to her. (we wish that was recorded)

We had a little tea party for her on the night of her birthday.

It was a special celebration for Emma. I think we had fun too. 🙂


Life’s Treasure

Life’s Treasure.

A little like a slightly torn treasure map searching and yearning to find it’s treasure. There is a reward that is known, but getting there takes a lot of work, knowledge, commitment and love for the end result.

Isn’t it a little like our passion for Heaven and the rewards there? You gain the relationship with Christ and strive for that reward. You know the reward is there, but you want to get there by working hard, gaining knowledge, committing to Christ, and loving his word.


I like to say blogging is my “writing” career pursuit that never happened….My goal as a high school and college student  was to write a book. Specifically a children’s book. My lack of patience and pursuance has gotten me no where, but here…

I have come to the realization that a book may never happen, but that is just fine with me. I used to write. A lot. BUT it is amazing how priorities change. In a good way. I have a family now and they take up all of my time. Which is a huge blessing.

So my priorities is no longer writing a book.Because my main goal in life is to honor God with my whole heart. As hard as this is on a daily basis, I must remember he sustains and gets us through it. I think one day I may have an opportunity to pursue a book, but I may not. Here I am. Filling that void with a blog. To write creatively and passionately.

So, let this journey begin. Whether you choose to follow me, learn life with me, or happen to stumble across this site, thank you. This is the closest I will get to a children’s book. For now, my blog allows me to write about things I passionately love.

“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

-Joshua 25:15
