I’m twenty-something, born and raised in Texas (except for a few short years spent out of state). I am both a first born and the only girl in my family, and had parents who loved their children nearly as much as they loved the Lord.

I fell in love with my best friend, and we were married in September of 2010. I’ve spent the time since learning to be a good helpmeet, homemaker, and wife. This has been the most daunting and most rewarding task I’ve ever undertaken. The honeymoon still hasn’t ended for us, and I don’t expect it to any time soon.

Since then we’ve had three little ones, one in heaven, one with us, the third on the way. Our loss was difficult (my husband shares here about some of the hard lessons we learned together), but we are learning to trust the Lord. We look forward to meeting our newest little blessing soon.

Between the two of us we have a large and active family consisting of four parents, five brothers, seven sisters, three nieces and two nephews, and more cousins, aunts, and uncles than I can count at the moment. We have so much fun with them!
