Meet Courtney

Hi, there! My name is Courtney. I recently got bangs so I feel the need to update my photo, and everything else here. Clearly, I am still a work in progress. 

(Yes, that is a teddy bear sharing space with me, and I realize the bangs are a bit windblown. My attempt at keeping it real.)


I started this blog in 2010 in an effort to adjust to stay at home motherhood. It was part therapy, part ministry, part creative outlet.  It's never been a business. Always a hobby. All that remains true, though circumstances have changed. Now, no one is in diapers, I've returned to part time work, and I'm learning to see things in terms of seasons - rather than, I'll never get to sleep through the night again!! I do, and it is glorious.

Through the varying seasons of life, this blog has been and remains a place for me to express my faith in the way that I'm most comfortable: through the written word. That is its primary purpose. I also write about anything else that comes to mind. Mostly motherhood, books, a need to simplify, and sometimes, my husband's wine-making hobby.

Some of my favorite posts:
Four Eyes
A Little Background
Mom Shoes

At one point, I blogged every day. I'm not sure how. These days, I try to stick to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. If you're still reading, thank you. It'd be awfully lonely if you weren't here. I hope you'll come back. You, your thoughts, and your stories are welcome. We can make progress, together.
