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

Look at me I'm crawling now! I love to play with my Dad. He sings me silly songs and even if he's tired, if I laugh he will do it again. My mom and I are best buds... we spend every day together. She told me today that when she was little she had so much fun playing with Uncle Josh and Uncle Justin that she thinks God thought I needed someone to play with too... so she and dad are going to have a brother or a sister for me soon. I said but mom I'm only eight months old and she just said that's right, imagine how close the two of you will be and after that I think I heard her mutter something under her breath about God's sense of humor as He teaches her that He is in control.
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.
