I love God. I'm passionate about adoption and Ethiopia. Beth Moore rocks my socks off - there is just something about her Texas twang and love for the Lord. I love Summit Church and getting to worship God there each week and dig into God's word.
A few other things I love: my family, my friends, my weekly women's Bible study, gerbera daisies, singing, Chicken E, Dr Pepper, my Yorkie Story, scrapbooking, reading, Maui, the beach, autumn, NYC, purple, sending cards, Audry Hepburn, snow, pajamas, Cardinals Baseball (because my husband does), volunteering at the children's hospital with cancer patients, gelato, cupcakes, baking, Grey's Anatomy, KLOVE and worshiping the Lord.
John and I met through a mutual friend in 2007. In all honesty, I didn't really even want to go on a date with him. He was so not like the guys I normally dated (which I later realized was a REALLY good thing). My dad once told John that he was the first guy I dated that wasn't a jerk. It didn't take long for me to realize that there was something very special about John. He proposed to me in Maui on February 11, 2008 and we were married October 25, 2008.
I am in awe of all that God has done in our marriage and in our lives during the few short years we have known each other. I am humbled that He has chosen John and I for this adoption journey. We have both been changed in ways that we could never have dreamed possible by our awesome God and through this adoption. We have faced some hard and emotional times as we dealt with infertility and the ups and downs that come with adoption, but we are so thankful for each and every detail of our journey because it has been in those dessert season that our faith has been made rock solid and we have become more like Jesus.
God knew I would need John. He knew that together we would strive to live our lives for Him. Although John can be a big dork, I trust him completely, I feel secure and safe with him. 2010 was a hard year for me but John was there to get me through the emotional roller coaster that is infertility. Even in the hardest moments, the times of uncertainty and sadness I have never doubted John's commitment to me or our marriage.That is love.
