Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.   They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV
What could we see every day if we dared to look?  Using Ann Voskamp's book "One Thousand Gifts," my photography, and of course, His word...God continues to show me why I was made: to delight in Him. 

Join me in my journey.

I'm this dichotomy of being very open and fun-loving at the same time I am very introspective and reflective. I love learning, searching, and understanding. I am a Buckeye by birth, but am an Appalachian girl at heart and in my blood. The mountains of West Virginia call me home every day as I am the first of my descendants to not be born there.
I have a seemingly insatiable curiosity.

"Why?" is the most important question. I am always wanting to dig deeper and tend to be self-taught in most all I do.

I find myself happiest with a cup of coffee and a journal and my Bible, or in the outdoors with my binoculars and my field guide (and now my camera), or doing genealogy, discovering more and more about the people who make who I am. I've just been photographing in the past year with my Nikon D90 SLR, with so much to learn and with lots of room to grow!

I am rabid about WVU mountaineers and bluegrass music, though I have very eclectic musical tastes. I sing and play piano, since age 5.

Professionally, I'm an licensed independent social worker involved in medical social work.

Additionally, I am the mother of two adults, a wonderful daughter and a son with severe autism. I have three wonderful grandchildren, Noah, Elijah, and Gabriel who light of my life amazingly! And a son-in-law to beat the band!  I am the caregiver for my mother with end-stage Alzheimers.  I could not make it through this journey of life without my amazing husband, Ed.  And most of all, my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

  1. I love the name of your blog - that is one of my favorite scriptures that I cling too often. I too am a caregiver for my Mom who has Alzheimer's. A journey that definitely has a lot of ups and downs as you well know. I actually started out in Social Work with an Associate degree, then switched over to English for my Bachelors. Then, I was done with school! My husband on the other hand went for his DMA in piano. I saw your post on the #write31days FB page and popped over to read it and then wanted to know more about you so came here. Glad to meet you!
