"There are lives I can imagine without children, but none of them have the same laughter and noise" - Story People

There are places that you go and you just feel a sense of dread because you know you will never want to leave... Mom and I watched many sunsets and Julian put his little feet in the ocean for the first time. We also fed the kangaroos and had breakfast with exotic birds. We went hiking in the pouring down rain in the oldest rainforest in the world and did a little snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef (a bit rough since wewere out there with cyclone Monica!).... and this was all before we even met with the family!
I am a woman shamelessly dependent on a Savior. I am constantly being shaped and molded, bending and moving in ways I never thought possible. I am married to the most incredible Australian man, the accent of which is only the beginning of his sublimeness. He is a rock that God has so graciously allowed me to walk alongside. I have four beautiful children who teach me more than I could ever teach them. This blog is really about sharing life with others and hoping to provide even the slightest bit of wind at their backs at just the right moment. I have a soft spot for nutella and peanut butter on a spoon together, like dogs that smell good but not cats, force myself to join clubs to be more relationally oriented, and at least once a week dance so long in my living room that sweat drips in my eyes.
