Hi, my name is Brenda, and I’ve been married for 19 years to a pretty awesome dude. I’m a bio mom and an adoptive mom. I am currently a Nutrition Therapy Association student & obsess just a tiny bit about how food impacts our bodies and moods. We used to be farmers and sold our foods at farmers markets every week, until we felt like we were juggling too many balls and they were falling. Our kids are our priority, so even though we enjoyed raising chickens and pigs, we currently live in a neighborhood with a small yard. Our family is pretty involved in youth theater, and we all adore the different aspects of putting on a show and spending time with the other theater families. We’ve seen our kids grow and mature immensely because of their involvement in theater.

Like some of you, we may or may not deal with some challenges in our parenting. 😉 I think that parenting our kiddos is a great reminder that the quote “God will never give you more than you can handle” is an absolute lie and unbiblical besides. He HAS, frankly, given us more than we can handle, which is a great reason to lean on His strength every day of our lives. 

I mostly write about adoption, parenting and nutrition. I am also a homeschool mama, foodie, reader, lover of antique architecture and books, and I make spreadsheets and charts for pretty much every detail of my life. Oh, and if our life wasn’t crazy enough, we own 2 dogs–one of which is a 2 year old hyperactive, yapping Yorkie named Lincoln. I really wanted to adopt a baby, but he was cheaper. 😉

Our life is loud, fun, lovely, and messy! I hope you’ll stick around here to learn more!
