Greetings From Allume!


Hello, hello, hello! I made it! I’m here! I have found my people!!!

So, real quick, I wanted to say an official hello to those of you visiting my blog from Allume. HELLO! I’m so glad you stopped by! This is my blog where I write about ALL the life between once upon a time and happily ever after. I write a little bit about everything- Bible studies and faith, marriage and family, shoes and chocolate, this thing called LIFE.

One of my first posts was a fairy tale which turned into a little series, and last October I wrote a 31 Days series called Hearken, I would love for you to read either of those series. If you’d like to get a feel for my usual voice though, start with one of my featured posts.

I frequently write guest posts for other blogs and I would love to become part of a contributor blog.

If you’re a guest I invite you to please poke around and tell me what you think. Please leave a link in the comments to your blog, just in case I misplaced your card.

If you are a regular viewer or a subscriber would you do me a huge favor? Would you put in the comments which post you’ve enjoyed the most so that my new friends can check it out?

Thank you so much for stopping by! I look forward to visiting with you soon!

I’m so nervous-excited I can’t sit still, but it’s finally here! So some of you are probably wondering what Allume is. In short, Allume is a writing conference for Christian women. It’s a community of women at all stages of their writing journey gathering to connect and encourage one another. It’s super awesome, or so I’ve heard. I first heard about Allume years ago when I started blogging, and have wanted to go ever since, this year it’s finally happening!!! And I can’t help… [Continue Reading]

The Daily 15 Minute Miracle

for kindred grace

It’s 5:45 on Monday morning, do you know where your Bible is? I roll over and hit snooze. The baby starts crying. My husband surprises me with a cup of coffee.
