Welcome to This Pilgrim Life! I’m so glad you stopped by!
Why a pilgrim life?
Living a “pilgrim life” means recognizing that this world is not our ultimate home and that we are living for something much greater than just the here and now. My hope is that you will find beauty, encouragement, and helpful resources as we do just that!

A little more about me…
I am firstly a follower of Christ. This means I love Jesus and am wholly dependent on His mercy and grace in everything.
I am married to my best friend. I am so blessed to be his wife. It’s not always easy, but it is always good.
I have six children– three sons, two daughters, and a sweet little boy in heaven. They are a gift and I am very thankful to be home together, working, playing, loving, and mostly surviving the crazy.
I am a creative person (aren’t we all?). How I express that creativity depends on what season of life I am in and who is currently teething/potty training/sick/grumpy/hungry… But when the stars are aligned, my favorite creative pastimes are cooking, sewing, and painting. Often my kids join me in each of these pursuits.
