I love starting my day early, alone, with a cup of coffee and my Bible. Here, I find soul satisfaction with Jesus–because our hearts were created to want more than they know in themselves. 

Getting to tap in with God on a moment’s notice is the greatest gift a heart could know. 

I have four beautiful children whom I love with all my heart. My favorite people give me grey hair and tears, but more life and laughter than I could live without. They keep my old soul young. 

Sometimes, we find love where we least expect it–right in the center of the crazy, where we get to give a kiss, smile a bit, or hold a hand. Because those moments are available daily, and love can’t afford to wait. 

For all of us, life is a mix of the crazy and beautiful. We choose where to live, whether it be the beautiful or the ugly. As Voskamp so beautifully says, “Dare to live fully, right where you are!”
