Welcome to my neck of the woods where transparency runs deep through my veins. This is my little space where I vulnerably share a plateful of stories with tons of heart amidst the different, colorful seasons of my life whether joyful or painful. It’s my hope that my blog is an encouraging place for messy and broken people just like me. I want to spend the rest of my life making others feel less broken. And in this, I hope you stay awhile until something here has made your heart feel full.
Though I’m a mountain gal at heart, I currently live in Fort Worth with my handsome hubby and our kitty cat Meeko. I’m an elementary special education teacher. It’s one of my deepest joys in life. I’ve been working with autistic and other special needs children as a teacher assistant since 2013 which paved the road to my teaching career in 2018. There is nothing more rewarding in my life than seeing children making progress towards a better quality of life and using their capabilities.
Jesus is my all. My imperfect, overly sensitive, sinful self is proof I literally cannot do life without Him. My friends & family keep my heart full and my husband is God’s gift to me. We married on sweet November 4th of 2017. I thank God for his soul, that I get to breathe alongside his everyday.
I started writing a long time ago. It’s my silent therapy. Below is from a virtual interview I did with Story On on why I blog:
My blog is a place for people to come to just as they are and share in the beauty that comes from sharing the stories of our hearts with others. I noticed my blog started to grow when I started to become really real in my writing; when I didn’t hide my heart and I was utterly honest. I write because I simply want to encourage others that whatever season we find ourselves in that may be a struggle, we can come out of it by the grace of God. I believe there is beauty in everyone’s story and there is even more beauty when we can speak life to each other in both the trying and joyous seasons of our lives. I blog because my heart will never stop going through different chapters, and as long as my life is still flipping through its own book, I will use whatever chapter I’m in to speak love and encouragement into others going through similar walks. It’s all about climbing one mountain at a time and knowing that you’re not alone on the journey.

F A V O R E D Q U O T E S
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.
