Well, it’s been a crazy blessed life so far. I was in the military for ten years only to get injured overseas and then medically retire one month before I got married to my wonderful husband. Then I was a military wife for ten years. He just retired to join the civilian world which has been a journey in itself.

We’ve been through a lot in the last ten years. From infertility, deployments, deaths, adoptions, autism, ADHD,  and big moves, God has held us in His hands through it all. I now am a stay at home mom to our five kids. I swear it’s more stressful some days than driving convoys in Iraq but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

I may never have been blessed to be pregnant but my love for my kids couldn’t be more real. Together the seven of us make up a family better and bigger than I could have ever imagined. There’s so much more to our complicated family but I guess you’ll figure that out through the wacky, whiny, and sometimes insightful posts.

I pray that this blog blesses you as I share some of our messes, laughs, and struggles and how God has shown us through all of it.
