I am a (newly) forty-something enjoying life in Florida. Must go to the beach & be in the outdoors as much as possible – sunset photos are plentiful in my world! I have a quirky, beautiful tribe of friends and family who love me no matter what. I have the privilege of planning ministry events for women. And I love my church.

LOVE to laugh.

Can’t get enough of anything Sherlock Holmes.

Adore Josh Groban (or “Uncle Josh” as my young adult nieces call him).

Geek out over Masterpiece shows (LOVE all things Downton Abbey!).

Am determined to up my game into the crazy 8K run culture!

And LOVE me some sparkling water!

I started this blog out of the outpouring of God’s direction, correction and love in my imperfection. I continue to write as I am led and as I see things in my life that need to be pushed out of the shadows and into the light.

I seek to live out love in everything I do. I may not get it right all the time – actually, I do not get it right a lot of the time – and God continues to use me and love me through it. Grace upon grace, right?! He gives you that kind of grace as well.

Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 4:11

You and I are loved beyond measure and have the joy of living that love out in the world! I hope this tiny corner of the blog world will encourage you to do so!

Live loved and you will live love.
