I am a wife, mom and daughter. I have served in the United States Army, gone to college and received a Batchelor's Degree in Criminology. I married my husband when he was on active duty in the United States Army so I have the unique knowledge of what it is like to be on both sides of a Military uniform. I have been a wife for a lot longer then when I was in the Army.

While we were stationed in Germany, my daughter, who is 20 years old now was born and I chose to put my career on hold to be a mom and eventually a homeschool mom.

The past almost 10 years have been wrought with many struggles for various reasons, but it is as a result of those struggles that this blog has come about.

As the years passed and the struggle kept coming, I would say to God, "I'm not sure why we have to go through all of this, but if we have to God, then allow my story to serve as a means of encouragement to others so all this pain isn't for nothing."

Well the years passed but the struggles never went away. I feel now is the time God wants me to begin sharing my story. It is my prayer as I share my heart that it will serve as a healing opportunity for you, my readers. Know you are not alone. There is hope and encouragement that waits.
