I am a born sinner, but a child of God through faith in Christ. I am a New Yorker at heart, living in the South. I am the wife to a pretty awesome missionary man and the momma of two beautiful girls. I am a friend to amazing women, and a special education teacher to amazing kids. I LOVE, David Platt and Jon Piper, Carrie Underwood and Maroon 5, The Voice and Nashville, Starbucks and Coke, working out and hanging out, bible study and prayer, working with college girls and discipling any girls. This blog is the story of our adoption, our life together, and both the deep and not so deep thoughts that regularly float through my mind. Galatians 2:20 is the verse that I seek to live by more and more each day as God sanctifies me for His glory.
