Welcome, thank you for stopping by!
I’m Susan; *hand waving hello wildly*– Sorry… I’m just super excited you’re here! Let me start by telling you a little about me. I’m a wife, to Don, who happens to be my best friend, and a mama to 3 wonderful, fun and dashing boys, who are ages 15, 13 and 8. I homeschool my 2 younger boys and have come to love doing it after a rather bumpy start 5 years back. I’m also a daughter, sister, and friend, to name a few things. But most importantly, and where I’m learning to stake my identity is this; I’m a follower and believer in Jesus Christ.
This blog grew out of a desire to share my journey in this crazy, beautiful, and (let’s be honest) a bit scary at times, life. If you stick around here you’ll hear me talk a lot about Jesus, faith, anxiety, depression, motherhood, and a little about homeschooling.
When I was in my hardest days of anxiety and depression, if I could laugh for even a minute, it helped. So, I’m hoping you’ll pick up on my ridiculous sense of humor and laugh along with me even when life is hard… because… well, it’s hard sometimes. Can I get an amen?!
I’ve struggled with anxiety ever since I was a little girl and I’ve learned a few things along the way that I would love to share with others who are also walking this path. It can feel a little lonely sometimes, am I right? One of my greatest goals is to share the impact Jesus has had in my struggle with anxiety and to extend to others the comfort and peace I have received through Him.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Cor. 1:3-4
I love writing, it’s therapeutic for me. I’m a thinker, I could think something to death just to revive it to think it to death again. So, writing helps me get all of those thoughts out. People who know me best will tell you I’m extremely passionate about what I believe and those that I love. I love words. I love the outdoors, my garden, running and hiking and DIY projects and my family and friends. (not necessarily in this order of course… depends on the day)
