I ask that you would extend proper courtesy. Please, do not pin, save or use family or children photos unless noted. If you see a “pin it” button on an image – it’s normally safe to share or pin.

Definition of Graced

unmerited or undeserved favour‘ God gives us unconditional love – despite all we do to Him or to each other.

My life is sometimes messy, my heart can even get ugly at times. Even still, my life is overflowing with God’s daily undeserving sufficient grace.

Some days we just need reminded of the eternal worth and significance of our everyday lives. Our lives are graced lavishly in and throughout. God’s grace — a gift that is given to us, can be passed on and mirrored to others as we live out our grace laden lives.

 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight,  He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him. {Eph. 1:7-9}

But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us—see
that you abound in this grace also.
{2 Cor. 8:7}

Definition of Simplicity

the state of being simple, uncomplicated, unmixed, alertness of mind To be simple is to be single-minded, to have one aim and no selfish ambition. Simplicity is also another word for “pure devotion.”


For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and Godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you. {2 Cor. 1:12}


Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eye service, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. {Col 3:22}

In honor of my friend Becca {Jun. 11 1984 – Feb. 1, 2013}  who is now with Jesus. Her sudden death impacted my life greatly. I chose to launch the blog in honor of her short
life as a wife, mom, daughter, and precious friend. Her death
reminded me once again that life is fleeting and must be cherished each
and everyday as if it was our last. Becca, your death has inspired me to
live more fully and more focused on eternity than ever before. I miss
you, see you again someday soon!
To my extended family, faithful friends and readers.
Your dedication amazes me, your testimonies and notes of encouragement have deeply touched my heart, and have inspired me to keep writing. Thanks for following me these last
few years!
