Hi! Thanks for joining me on my journey to Heartening Forward. Heartening Forward is a place where I can express what’s on my heart through my personal life experiences. I love to encourage others to feel empowered to create to their heart’s desire.

As a believer, wife to my husband of 17 years, and a mother of 5 children (ages newborn through 16 years old) I feel like I always have something to share. Here I will talk about a variety of topics: parenting, faith, curly hair tutorials and tips, crafts and hobbies, and there may be an occasional post about my opinions on some of the injustices happening in the world today.

My hope and prayer is that you are encouraged by my experiences to feel empowered to create on your journey using your own gifts, talents and abilities. I am excited about going on this journey of Heartening Forward with you.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”

2 Corinthians 13:11

(NIV, New International Version)
