Hi! Thanks for wandering to OMT, where I take a deep breath and reflect on faith, truth, and being human. I’ve stretched, tried, failed, tried again, and every time, the grace of a loving Savior keeps me following. Maybe you can relate.
A few interesting things about me:
I’ve been a mom since my senior year of high school, and it’s fair to say much of what I’ve learned in life has been viewed through the lens of motherhood. My husband and I were married a few months after we met. We have 4 children, and life is a continuous swirl of activity and noise. And fun 🙂
I’m inclined toward most things culinary and fitness. A good day involves going rogue on a recipe and strengthening stubborn muscles in awkward, but effective ways. I’m a voracious reader, frequent biker, and a big believer in the power of prayer. I love celebrating half birthdays, friendship, kindness, and the bravery of being real.
I mentor at a nonprofit for vulnerable women, where I teach weekly classes on getting unstuck, establishing boundaries, ditching insecurity, finding courage, and other useful skills never taught in school. I’ve learned a ridiculous amount from the women there and I’m indebted to them for showing me humility and dignity.
I rediscovered my fondness for simple truth while journaling through the entire Bible for each of my children. It was the most defining Bible study I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend it.
I’ve lived in 5 states all over the map, but right now, home is in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona, aka, the Valley of the Sun. The forecast is almost always pure sunshine, allowing me to be outside year round without braving snow or dodging raindrops. This makes me very happy.
I believe the truth is most captivating when lived genuinely, spoken plainly, and offered gracefully. Jesus gave the best example. One More Truth is all about His life and love.
Life shapes us, doesn’t it? God’s presence is confirmed in ordinary, real-time moments and His love reaches tight places. There are infinite reasons to love Him deeply, trust Him more, and love others with His sincere kind of love.
I’m guessing that’s why you’re here. Let’s do this together!
