"The thistle is a prickly flower, aye, but how it is sweetly worn."

About Me

A little about me...

1.  I gave my life to Christ in 2004.  I haven't done things perfectly since then, but I know where my hope lies.

2.  I have a soon to be 5 year old named Jude Dylan, who was born in 2009.  This blog was originally a baby blog.

3.  I was a single mom for 4 years.  Becoming a single mom caused me to feel less comfortable blogging about Jude.  So I started to blog more randomly.  It's turned into a blog for my story and my search for Christ.

4.  My favorite flower is a thistle.  I love that it is purple.  I love that it is prickly.  I love that its beauty isn't found in its traditional bouquet like qualities.  Rather it's beautiful because it's been through difficulty and trial.  The title of my blog comes from a White Stripes song called "Prickly Thorn, but Sweetly Worn", specifically from the line 'the thistle is a prickly flower, aye, but how it is sweetly worn.

5.  I married my favorite person in the world this year on July 12, 2014.  He is one of the godliest men I know and proof that our God is a God who redeems!

6.  I want to spend my life focusing on foreign missions.  Hoping God opens that door someday.

7.  I have taught for 6 years in low income schools with children from pretty difficult backgrounds.  It's a mission field all it's own.

8.  I'm now in my 8th year of teaching. Last year was my year of jubilee.  It was my first year to teach in a non low income campus.  And like the Levitical priests said, the 7th year is a year of rest.  It was my year of rest.  Starting a new school year is always exciting, and I can't wait to see what The Lord has in store for me this year.

8.  I began a new health journey in January 2014.  I have explored different essential oil companies.  Wrestled with those companies.  Researched those companies.  Prayed about the companies.  Ultimately, I decided Young Living Essential Oils were the path of health God laid our for my family.  I am excited to learn more and share what has honestly become a true passion!
