I cannot believe 2015 is about to come to a close. It’s been a really incredible year with many amazing opportunities. It’s also been exhausting!
Here are a few reflections and updates for you.
We are in fact still TTC (Trying To Conceive). I’m not taking any drastic measures, we’re just doing what we know to do and trusting God. There are days when I’m not sure I can handle starting over, and other days when I ache to bring another child into the world…so we just take it a day at a time and remain “open to life.”
Two years ago, I kicked my sugar addiction. And I’ve been gluten, wheat and cow’s milk-free for about 18 months and I feel better than I have in, well, my entire life.
This was me right around my birthday in November 2015, wearing my second-hand top and size 6 Levi’s!
The boys are now 10 (yikes!) and 6. They’re so precious and we are incredibly blessed that they are kind, smart, strong, thoughtful boys, and so good to each other. They both earned new belts recently in karate and are getting all As in school. They love playing video games, making up stories to act out with their Angry Birds plushies, and riding their scooters to the park.

I’m making some adjustment for my business in 2016, primarily because I want to publish a book about the miscarriage story. My main focus is helping work-at-home moms elevate their image and expand their influence so they can have their work, family and faith in harmony and pursue God’s best for their lives. You can find out more on my work with me page.
For this space, I hope to encourage more women in 2016 who are experiencing unexpected setbacks on the journey of motherhood, from infertility to unplanned pregnancies. My work at the Pregnancy Care Center of Chandler will continue and I hope to host some support groups as well.
In 2016, I hope to get back to walking, yoga, herbs and essential oils–some of my loves that were placed on the back burner for too long!!
If you’re reading, I’d love to connect with you so feel free to email me at email@example.com or say hello on my Facebook page.
Let me know how I can support you or what you’d like for me to blog about!
Wishing you all the best in 2016 and beyond.
