4. WHERE DO YOU DRAW ENCOURAGEMENT FROM?
A few places. First and foremost from God. Then from my husband and daughter, and finally community of people around me. I’m so thankful for my people and who I get to do life with.
5. WHAT PROJECT, HOBBY, OR MISSION ARE YOU ESPECIALLY EXCITED ABOUT OR INVOLVED IN RIGHT NOW?
Our next big project is transforming our guest bedroom into a nursery next month for our baby boy who is due this July! We are excited to welcome another boy into the family and watch our daughter, Adelaide, be a big older sister. So that’s definitely taking up a lot of our focus and excitement right now!
6. WHAT DOES THE WORLD NEED MORE OF RIGHT NOW?
Love. Definitely love. The real and true love. Not the love that takes advantage, manipulates, or is based on conditions. But the love that says, “I will be there for you no matter what you do or say, today, tomorrow, next year.” That patient, kind, never failing love.
7. WHAT DO YOU WANT MOST FOR YOUR CHILDREN?
For them to go after their dreams with all they have and not stop until they achieve them. And then make new ones and achieve those too. I want them to know that the old, traditional ways are being redefined and they can truly do anything.
8. NAME SOMETHING YOU BOUGHT FOR YOURSELF THAT YOU LOVE.
I bought myself bowls and spoons made from real coconuts that I’m obsessed with. I’m a foodie so I put smoothies, salads, you name it, in them and always take pictures of my creations. The plus side is they are eco-friendly and beautiful. (Go check out Coconut Bowls if you want to see for yourself!)
9. NAME 2 THINGS YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT MONEY COULDN’T BUY AND WHY THEY MEAN SO MUCH TO YOU.
Family and community. With these two aspects in my life, I know I will never have to face anything alone, I always have someone I can turn to, and I will never be in need. In today’s world, families are falling apart more than ever and being able to turn to mine (husband, parents, cousins, aunts, etc) daily gives me hope and strength. I also think everyone should have some sort of community. A tribe of people who they do life with. Sometimes it changes, but the depth of those relationships are always so vital in different seasons. I have close friends that I can ask for anything and they would be there, and that’s huge.
