*this picture is from Feb. 2015 at my sister’s wedding.


I am a wife and mother of four. My family and I moved from Oklahoma to Florida in 2010 to be a part of a group of people who are learning to live by the indwelling life of Christ together.   This experience has rocked our world and changed our lives.  The Jesus we have come to know and love is so much more than we ever could imagine.  He fills up our spirits and our desire for Him only grows.  Jesus Christ is LIFE.  Truly.

In 2014 we left Florida and headed to California to spend a season with some church planters. They graciously trained us for 16 months to establish churches  by allowing us to watch and then partner with them as they planted three churches in California. They continue to mentor us and we are currently in Austin, TX with a couple of families to continue the Lord’s work here.

To manage all this traveling around, we live in a fifth wheel. It’s a bit unconventional, but we have found some unexpected gifts of living small and mobile. Our oldest, Caleb, graduation high school this year and is attending Austin Community College this fall. He loves writing fan fiction stories and computer animation. Joshua is a junior, loves Pokemon, and has been teaching himself to draw. Isaac is in eighth grade, builds amazing lego creations, and has an entrepreneurial spirit. Micaiah (Mi-kay-uh) is in sixth grade and loves to sing and dance. We homeschool. (just in case you hadn’t figured that out yet)

I also blog at 3rdRace.org with a group of believers who desire for Jesus Christ to be first in all things, and am a part of the To the Saints team that created podcasts about the Lord’s Eternal Purpose in Christ Jesus. My heart’s desire is to know and express my Lord.  He alone is my pursuit. I’m thrilled to travel with you on The Journey.

“I have asked one thing from the Lord, it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking Him in His temple.”  -King David, Psalm 27:4

    Wow. This sounds like a huge adventure! I’m glad you’re writing about it.
    I’m here because I found an amazing bit of history about snow hurricanes and thought I’d pass it along to any homeschoolers who are interested. Don’t know your teaching style, but the info is free and no strings attached. Just read and use if you like it:


    Enjoy! 🙂
