I’m Bethie and I am so glad you are here! I know life can be busy, chaotic, and stressful at times, but I do not believe that is how God intended it to be for us. I know there are seasons when you feel as though you have lost all control, and that’s okay to be there… but we were never meant to stay in that season. I believe God longs for us to have life and have it abundantly. My goal for this blog is that it would be a place on the internet that you can come to find things that are good, true, noble, and lovely. And a place that empowers you to live a restful and joyful life.
Over the past few years I have struggled and fought with anxiety, depression, and sickness. My world was dark, heavy, and completely overwhelming. Through dealing with this, God showed me that this is not how we were meant to live. God quickly brought me home, gave me rest, and taught me how to be still, and grow in relationship with Him. I would say those 3 years were the hardest years of my life, and yet I would walk through every minute of it again if it meant I could be closer to God and have life to the fullest.
When I was going through that season of hardship, I felt alone, but the more I talked to people, I realized that everyone seemed to have a story similar to mine… and I would love to connect with you and know your story.
A little about me real quickly… I’m super close with my family. I have 3 siblings: an older brother, Adam, a younger sister, Caitee, and a little brother, Daniel and we are all best friends! My Mom and Dad are the most amazing and supportive people you will ever meet and have given me so much guidance, love, and wisdom. I love all things chocolate. I’m way more fun with coffee. I love traveling. I love hiking and being outside.
My dream job when I was younger was to be a teacher (for 1st grade students to be exact). And now, my life has not changed too much, I love to teach but just a little differently and that is probably one of the main reasons I started this blog.
Honestly, I cannot guarantee that anything you find on this blog will be a new or original idea. I will be sharing the things that bring me joy, and life. Let’s just call this a nice, curated space and a collection of things I have learned along the way.
I can’t wait to walk this new journey with you!
