Oh hello! I’m Tracie and am thrilled you’ve stopped by for a visit!

Come on in and get comfy while we get to know each other. I want to know all about you … the real you.

And I want to share with you all about me … the real me. Stories of

my crazy,
my struggles,
my parenting,
my kindness,
my photography,
my crafts,
my recipes,
my parties,
my dreams ended and begun
and ended again.
My stories of faith and of forgiveness.

These are just a few of the facets that make me the imperfect mess that I am. But through it all, the good, the bad, and the very ugly … I passionately believe in better. I believe no matter what this life brings, no matter our stories, no matter our circumstances … our God has better planned for us and I want to whisper that encouragement to you today.

The words my six year old sings ring true, “He’s still working on me, to make me what I oughta be. How loving and patient He must be … cuz He’s still working on me.”

How about you friend? Are you an imperfect mess struggling to believe in better?

If so, then I couldn’t be more excited to have you here with me! Let’s be friends who talk about real life and believing in better … believing in all He has in store for us!

Thanks for stopping by … won’t you grab a cup of coffee and stay a while?

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. Jeremiah 29:11 {MSG}
