I am a wife and homeschooling mom who leads a pretty normal (some might say boring) life. With three kids, a husband, a cat and five chickens to care for, it’s rarely actually boring. It is filled with days that include school, sports practices, drama classes, cleaning, cooking, DIY-ing, church, and countless other family activities. I love good coffee, good books, time alone with my husband, time together with my kids, the smell of clothes right out of the dryer, spring rain, and yes, long walks on the beach. I desire to live each day Coram Deo – before the face of God. I find the sacred in the simple and joy in a project done with my own hands. Not a glamorous life, but a life I love.
