LIVE life with a PURPOSE!

Saturday marks 20 months since my larger than life husband, Todd went home to Heaven.  For those of you new to my blog you can go all the way back to the beginning to get the details and follow my journey to this point.  I love that so many are reading my life, stuggles and…

God is good to me

Well I have officially survived 19 months walking in these new shoes on what has been described as a marathon journey through widowhood.  Not sure what mile marker I am at by now but some days I feel like my heart and emotions are rounding the corner to the finish line and then other days…

Sweet Bethany turns 5!!!

As I celebrate my precious girls life today I reflect how she came into our hearts and lives 5 years ago!!!  I must first back track a bit to the summer of 2007 and while on a mission trip to Haiti God planted a seed in my heart to adopt a baby of color.  Todd…

He is still the man of my dreams…
