Welcome! It sure is a joy to meet you here.

Passions are important.

This is a message that echoes around the world nearly everyday, but I worry that we have missed the point. We’ve twisted this message to mean that we must bulldoze ahead and fight for success and work ourselves exhausted.

I believe the opposite. I believe our passions are meant to give us more life – to open our eyes and refresh our minds and spark something in our hearts.

For many years, I believed I was living from my passions. But I was burned out, physically tired and emotionally spent. I heard the quote, “Give yourself permission to be authentic.

And something softened in me.

What is my most authentic self?

My heart comes alive when I write, sharing words that sprout from the many different seasons of life, and encouraging you to do the same. Blogging is a passion.

As I learn more about the Lord daily, it humbles and strengthens me at the very same time. I crave sharing that with you.

I lose myself in the kitchen – hands covered in a new recipe, creating food for those I love.

Faith. Blogging. Baking. These are my passions – the things that make my life sweeter, more meaningful.

This blog is a combination of my most life-giving passions. It’s the authentic version of me sharing with you. And I hope that some of these passions rub off on you, encouraging you to grow faithfully and live passionately right beside me.

So, I ask you: what are your passions?

It is my prayer that this place on the web becomes a tool for you, something you can return to again and again for inspiration, encouragement, and strategy.
