Easter Reflections


It’s been far too long since I have written. It took more out of me to share my story than I expected, but I’m back and ready to continue writing!

This year was one of the best Easter’s I have ever had, simply because I was able to focus on the real meaning behind the Holiday. For far too many years it was hurry, get the eggs colored, buy the candy and hide the Easter eggs, how much money do we have to spend on Easter basket gifts, rush rush rush! I find this to be the default setting for myself when it comes to all holidays, which leads me to ask myself “when did I become the boring grown up who doesn’t even like Holidays?”

My Journey Part 3: What does it all mean?

To be honest, sharing this much of my personal life online has been incredibly difficult for me. I don’t like to talk about these things very much, and very few people knew much about my story until now. Some may ask, why then are you doing this?

Let’s talk about my current life, and how my past has molded who I am.

My Story- What on earth am I doing bearing my soul online?!

Hello World!

I have a story, just like most of us do. Life creates them for us, but we decide the outcome. I feel like it is time to share my story with the world in the hopes that I can encourage others on their way through life. This has never been an easy thing for me to talk about, but I pray with God’s grace he will help me share my story in a way that can help you find peace and healing in your journey.

I’d like to begin sharing with you my battle with depression, and how I have found happiness and continue to do so in my every day life. “Keeping it all Together” for me refers to the one thing that connects all aspects of my life: My relationship with my Heavenly Father. On this blog you will find inspirational quotes, tips and tricks for sewing, crafting, and homeschooling. All of this will weave through and end up back at my foundation: I am a Daughter of a Heavenly King, through this I have found my worth.

So welcome to my corner of the world! I hope you stay and enjoy yourself. I look forward to sharing life with you!
