Hi, I’m Becky, and I’m so glad you’re here! On this blog I hope that you’ll find encouragement, solidarity, and biblical wisdom to live out your crazy, beautiful, God-given roles of mom, wife, auntie, sister, grandma and so much more. Together I believe we can discover a higher purpose in packing those lunches, playing taxi-cab to school and soccer and orthodontist appointments, and loving that guy called Dad even when his dinner consists of lukewarm hot dogs and pretzels for the third time this week. Not a single one of us is perfect. But God is, and wow do we ever need him.
I’m a writer, singer, speaker, whole-grain cookie bar baker, avid dreamer and family cheerleader. I have a love-hate relationship with my naturally curly hair, I crave matcha lattes, and I treat recipes as general suggestions.
Most importantly, I’m just a mom like you. The Lord has blessed me with two delightful daughters, horse-riding age 12 and Mom-can-we-go-to-Starbucks age 15 (a girl after her momma’s own heart). My husband and I are humbled daily by the joys and challenges of parenting, grateful for God’s guidance and grace as we trip over shoes in the hallway and scrape dried nail polish off our counter tops on a regular basis.
In addition to family life, I’m actively involved at my regional evangelical church, where I lead a weekly small-group women’s Bible study, sing on the worship team, and speak often for women’s ministry events. My church peeps are a tremendous, life-giving blessing to me and my family.
At the end of the day, when the family is in their beds, the laundry is (sometimes) folded and the homework is done and stuffed into backpacks, I can be found snuggled with my dogs, staying up too late reading or watching Netflix with my hubs, crafting new blog posts for fellow moms who just want to love out families for the Lord as best we can. We’ll all trip up at times, but God is full of love and grace. We can trust him, call on him, and find him in every ordinary moment and challenge. Isn’t that great news?
If you find a post that really speaks to your heart, please share it with friends! One of the greatest blessings of writing this blog is knowing that women are encouraging one another through the words God has given me. Thank you for joining me here. We’re on this journey together — you, me, and Jesus. Blessings from my household to yours!
