Welcome! I am so glad you stopped by. My name is Hope. I’m a simple, southern Jesus girl. I have been married to my semi high school sweetheart (we started dating seven months after graduation) for sixteen years. I recently left teaching after seventeen years to pursue my calling of motherhood and ministry.
I started blogging in 2013 about eight months after the loss of my first child. Writing became an avenue of healing for me as I struggled with grief, infertility, depression and anxiety. Four years later, I have two healthy babies who are eleven months and one day apart. I am still learning to navigate this life with children on both sides of heaven. My arms are full, but my heart is overflowing.
After my daughter was born, I began making changes that have led to a healthier lifestyle. So far I have lost seventy pounds, but I have gained so much more. My goal each day is to be better than the day before. I want to help others live better no matter what life throws their way.
I hope you will join me in this journey of navigating life after loss with hope.
