Hi, I’m Becky.
Can I just say, I’m so glad you’re here?
Words, coffee, and sharing stories heart to heart are what make me come alive.
That, and Jesus.
I’m a follower of Christ and mama to three of the most spirited [read: ACTIVE, stubborn, delightful, determined], dirt-loving little boys the Good Lord ever made.
I never imagined God would bless me (and test me) with the gift of three boys in three and a half years. My sons, Noah, Elias, and Jude, are now 5, 4, and 2, and have brought more love, laughter, and wrestling into my life than I ever dreamed. They are my joy!
But…Motherhood. Is. No. Joke.
It has thrust me to my knees, on my face, and into the arms of Jesus more than anything else in my life. In this space, I purpose to pull back the pretense of “having it all together” and invite you into my crumb-filled, desperate-for-grace, full-of-blessings-and-stressings and lessons-I-sometimes-rather-not-be-learning everyday mom moments.
Because when we link arms and say, “Yeah, I’ve been there, too,” Embracing Motherhood gets a little bit easier and a lot more beautiful.
Besides these cute faces, what gets me through the crazy chaos days?
God’s grace and giving thanks.
I’m learning to count the ways God loves me and cultivate a life of gratitude. Sometimes the road is bumpy, but it’s my joy to offer an open hand for you to join me on the Living Thanks journey.
And between mothering and thanksgiving? It’s all Growing Faith in the cracks and seams. Writing is the tool God’s given me to see His presence more clearly in my life; writing is the way the gritty and grace-laced lessons of faith seep deeper in my heart.
I also love sharing voice to voice the stories God stirs in me. Encouraging and inspiring women through speaking is quickly becoming my new favorite sweet spot to minister from.
And who’s with me in thick of it all? The fourth (but first) guy in my life.
Chris, my husband of nine years and best daddy and adventuring buddy. I’m so blessed to do this wild life with him.
I love this guy.
I love these guys.
And above all, I love Jesus. I want to know Him more and make Him known.
I’m on a journey of finding the fingerprints of God in creation, the larger story, and the ordinary, everyday beauty that make up my life as a writer, mama, and wife.
Through the Word and the world around me, I’ve got my heart hard set on
Awakening to Wonder.
Join me, won’t you?
“I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart;
I will tell of all His wonders.”
