Growing into 2019

Posted by on Dec 31, 2018 in Encouragement, Health, Kids, Relationships | 0 comments

Here comes 2019! 2019 is going to be a year filled with anticipation and hope. Hope of how we’ll continue to grow during the good and the bad times, and for all the adventures ahead. However, 2018 was a year of growth for me and my family. Each area of growth has led us to hope for the good each day. We grew spiritually. Being a part of BSF each year, studying Romans and listening to Alisa Childers podcast has led to incredible growth. The amount of direction and pruning has been overwhelming, but also welcoming. We also took time to really invest in what the kids are learning spiritually....

How My Life is Changing After Cancer

Posted by on Apr 10, 2018 in Encouragement, Health | 0 comments

Back in January life took a turn I didn’t see coming. When my doctor said my thyroid nodules had grown, I went ahead and had a biopsy done. The biopsy came back suspicious for thyroid cancer and two weeks ago, they took my thyroid out. Crazily the pathology came back with papillary thyroid cancer in both sides. While the cancer is all gone, the doctors will be watching me more closely now. My health has taken some crazy turns the last few years. Last October, I became really tired and hit a brick wall with my energy. When I tired to hit the ground running in January it went nowhere and have...

Potholes

This past year has been filled with so many amazing things and also some setbacks. It’s been a trying year when it comes to my health. Last year I had a liver resection and was miraculously better after 4 weeks and back to working out at 6 weeks. The fact that is wasn’t cancer was an even bigger praise! But this year, I’ve had stupid stuff happen to my health. Dropped a 30 pound weight on my foot in March and had a bone bruise for 3 weeks. Then in June my calf muscle tore. Slowly, but surely I’ve been recouping from this last injury as I train for a 1/2 marathon. Every other week, I’m at...

One year later

Saturday marks one year since my little peanut, Madelyn, entered this world. She has made life so enjoyable with her sweet spirit and laugh. There are days after my surgery, I sit in awe of my kids. Their happiness, fervor for life and joy remind me of what’s important. This past year has been filled with such joyous fun and difficult times. I still can’t believe the last 6 months were filled with constant health pain and coming out on the other side has shown me how to live with fervor and focus. These next few months, I’m going to take time to enjoy my family, live life and focus on God’s...

Just Breathe

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Encouragement, Health, Kids | 0 comments

So I’ve been in love with this song Breathe before it hit the airwaves in 2015. This song holds so much meaning in my life with two little ones. Many families have navigated two kids 15 months apart, but this was not what I envisioned in my head as a family. When we were going through infertility, we thought for sure our kids would be at least two years apart given the hurdles to get them here. Surprise when Madelyn showed up, but that’s a blog post for another time. What struck me about this song, outside of the fact that Jonny is a wonderful song writer, is the tempo and crescendo...
