Seeing that little face for the first time, his first cry, holding him in my arms… yes, I had witnessed it all before during the birth of our daughter. But this time it was amplified. It was as if I were watching in slow motion. I knew deep inside how fleeting this moment was. Realizing how in a few short years that this moment would be hard to remember. It sobered me, brought me to tears, and sent me into a whirlwind of emotion. Suddenly it was as if I didn’t have a single care about any professional work I had ever done or could ever do. Being a mother was clearly the single most important job in my life.

I still had to find myself. My mission. Yes, I was passionate I was about mothering. But finding my place in the big picture. For His glory, not mine. A lot of soul searching and many long nights in heartfelt prayer have very clearly led me here. This blog is about love. Loving one another and loving LIFE.

    My feelings seemed amplified as well with the birth of our second daughter last month. I can’t imagine not being mother to my two precious girls.
