About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

The big "3-3"!!!

It's finally here ... I am officially 33 years old / young today!!! A sweet friend of mine said to me that from here on in we can't even pretend to reverse our number otherwise we will make ourselves older!! hee hee. Seriously though ... it has been such an exceptional day. Once again I am thanking God for this amazing gift of life that He has given me. To have known and loved Him from the age of 5 - that to me is one of my BIGGEST blessings; then to have been raised in a family who has loved and taught me so much; to now being married to the most precious man in my whole wide world who has given me our 2 precious daughters; to having so many new and old friends who bless my life; and to be doing what I have always known my heart was called to - pastoring / ministering to a new church plant of precious new believers ... I am rich with the Fathers blessings!!! My life is FULL of the amazing love of God and He continues to surprise me (because I LOVE surprises) with new waves of revelation about His relentless and all consuming love for me! There is no greater joy. 

Today my home is FULL of beautiful flowers ... my phone is full of precious messages which are gifts to my heart and my tummy is way too full from eating way too many delightful treats :) Can it actually get sweeter?! From my bedroom I can hear the delightful screeches of delight as my girls are playing with my new pressie from my hubby - the Wi fit games ... it's all good!!! My heart is overflowing!

"Thank you precious Lord for the gift of life and another year to get to know and love you better. Show me how to love even more with Your life-changing love. Continue to teach me what "love in action" looks like. I am so excited for this next year of adventures up ahead."

Happy Birthday sweet friend! I reached the 3-3 number this year too. I also feel very blessed and at an age where I really appreciate all the small things in life. So glad you are having a wonderful birthday. Sounds like God has really blessed your life. Blessings and birthday wishes from North Carolina :)
