Hello Jem!

I’m a contented woman living a complicated life with a simple faith.
I like a hometown coffee shop with real cups and swirled designs in my hard caramel almond milk latte.
Whether sinking into an overstuffed couch, sitting across a table or standing shoulder to shoulder, I’m most at home in the presence of friends.


Mom of two miracles
Married to my perfect match

A writer, speaker and listener

My stories cover the everyday, the extraordinary and everything in between

I live in one of the greenest places on earth.
I’m the quintessential special needs mom, pastors wife and mom of a typical spectacular adult.

Get to know me and this amazing cast of characters:

Join me on the purple couch where we’ll tell stories, laugh, cry and eat together. We may just get inspired too!

I love a good conversation so please add comments or just say hi!

I also write at Douglas County Moms.  Join me and other passionate moms as we discuss everything under the sun!
