In the last several years, I have changed remarkably.
I struggled with thinking my voice and thoughts were not important enough, creative enough, cool enough, unique enough, intellectual enough, spiritual enough, not-spiritual enough and not valuable enough to be shared.
But I invited the Lord to transform me, to meet me in the midst of my insecurities and the yucky baggage I had accrued. I was tired of living powerless and tired of pretending.
Oh my goodness, did He ever show up. He gently started showing me how to change into the person I've always desired to be, the lady He created me to be: free and authentic.
I've learned that I am valuable, flaws and all.
I am enough...and I am not too much.
I bring something to the table that no one else does.
So here I am, exposing my thoughts and sharing my life. I hope to inspire, encourage and instruct. I hope to be able to give grace to people who misunderstand me and I hope to be given grace as I have never done this before and am figuring it out as I go.
I am a wife to Ryan and mom to Aila.
I am a former Emergency Room nurse. I am a daughter, sister, niece and aunt.
I have a passion for health and wellness. I love food.
I love making things beautiful.
I love learning, growing, changing and thriving.
And I am a beautiful work in progress.
