I’ve started this blog because I love encouragement. There is so much beauty around us – we just need to slow down and look for it. It can show up in the most unexpected places – keep your eyes open so you don’t miss it!

I am unapologetically Christian. I have been loved and changed by Jesus. There’s true freedom in unconditional love and that’s exactly what He offers. Does He change you? Absolutely! That’s actually the most exciting part of being a Christian! I am not the same person I was 5 years ago, let alone 20! And I’m so grateful He changed me!

We are each a unique creation “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13 No matter who we are, we were created on purpose for a purpose. I want to live a life that fulfills that purpose.

We each have to decide if we want to be encouraged or if we’d rather live in hopelessness. Faith is a choice. I hope through my blog you can see that it’s actually easier to have faith than to live without hope.

I am an author (Fair Isle Tunisian Crochet), editor, writer, spinner, knit and crochet designer. It’s pretty easy to see I love all things beautiful! I love all forms of fiber, unfortunately, most animal fibers don’t love me back. I’ve had to find new and unique ways around that when designing. On the plus side, I can use silk without guilt!

I adore my husband and sons. They have been the biggest and best blessings of my life. My new daughter-in-laws have also brought great joy to our family.  I enjoy cooking and will probably go overboard with the Colorado photos. By the time you leave my blog I hope your day is brighter and your heart is encouraged!
