WHY, HELLO THERE!
Humble beginnings sister, humble beginnings! The Lord first planted the seeds for Abundant Life Paper Co. in my heart during my battle with thyroid cancer in 2016. Hearing a doctor say the words, "you have cancer," awoke inside my soul the understanding that life is short, and I want to live it abundantly for Jesus as best I can. What started out as a handwritten family vision journal, later turned into a handful of products sketched out on my kitchen table. However, it wasn't until 2018 that I finally felt Jesus push the "go" button and encourage me to run after this crazy little dream.
After praying about which product to publish first, my wonderful husband, Mike, and I both agreed that the Dwell and Delight Journal would have the biggest impact for His Kingdom. Being in Jani's discipleship group and using these tools myself certainly changed my relationship with Christ! And that's how this all began ...
If we're honest, we have no idea where this adventure will lead! Will we print 100 journals and turn off the shop? Will we one day get to expand and publish more products to help women delight in Jesus? Time will tell. For now, we simply adventure on!
In my day-to-day life, you'll find me as a happy, adventure-loving mom to the best littles in the world (ages 6, 4, and almost 3)! I'm married to the most wonderful farmer, and together we're looking for ways to raise our family with intentionality and grace. I most certainly don't have it all together, but Jesus does and I have found His grace to be all sufficient. In my weakness, He is strong. Which is amazing because I sure do have a lot of weaknesses!
I'm passionate about discipleship, and find so much joy in watching women grow closer to the Lord! I also love swimming, laughing, homeschooling, and deep conversations over cups of coffee.
