I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


31 days of forgiveness – released!!


As I mentioned the other day, writing this book has been a labor of love. A complete and utter labor of love.

Anyone who knows me, knows my story, and reads this book, will know the labor of love and gamut of emotions put into each word.

I’m amazed as I sit back and read through these pages and think, “Who wrote this?!”

Then I hear a gentle reminder, “Remember when you invited me in each time you sat at the keyboard?”

Yes … indeed. These words … this book … and the heart behind it is Divinely written. I believe that with every fiber of my being!

<— This kid, Taylor Rio, my soon-to-be eighteen year old … wise beyond her years.

A living example of forgiveness and grace. It was one my most favorite things to do, to be able to dedicate this book to her … my first babygirl.

Taylor, you inspire me more than you might ever know. Stay strong my love and live in the plans your Savior has laid out for you.
