I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, a professional woman, and most importantly a layperson! I am that everyday woman, who wants to be the best she can be. I want to live my best life now, instead of daydreaming what I can and should be. By nature I am caring, outgoing, and responsible.

My goal for this blog is to improve areas in my life that just aren’t where they should be. I would love to have others join in on my quest to help Encourage, Inspire, and Educate me, others and themselves.
My goal for myself and this blog is to cultivate a place where a group of people can come together, join hands and help each other accomplish their goals.

See you on the journey!
