I’ve been spending a lot of time with Adam and Eve lately in my studying, and it has struck me over and over again- the imagery of imagery. Genesis 1:27 (ESV) say, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him,[…]

My identity was stolen this summer… or so I thought. I was asked to give up my long-time job as a flight nurse, I left willingly…. to another RN job in the hospital. Then I was asked to give that up too. I left willingly, but with a[…]

I was honored to participate in a fantastic author Q&A with my good friend and fellow blogger Amber Blackburn. If you’d like to read more about the inception, motivation, and story behind writing Helicopter Mom, this is the post for you! Check it out here!

Our daughter Anna, who has Down syndrome, just turned one. Children with these designer genes tend to be delayed on their development- sometimes up to two or three years in motor skills. Because of this, Anna has received physical therapy since she was about 3 weeks old. This[…]
