About Me


 Hi! My name is Faith. Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world. I am a daughter of God, coffee lover, Etsy shop owner, wife to an amazing man, and a mama to two sweet babies. 
My hubby and I were married May 14, 2011 and are so thankful for the love God has given us for each other. I have loved being married!
We have been blessed with two precious children. They have changed our lives and taught us so much about what's important. For the sake of being transparent, here's a real life peek at my adorable and clearly sometimes cranky kiddos.

I grew up in the frigidly beautiful state of Minnesota where my family still lives. I moved south a few years ago to be closer to my boyfriend and then married him. I was raised on a dairy farm with over 200 cows. Although a lot has changed in my life since that season, I still have a special place in my heart for the farm life.

Just like any girl, I need a best friend. I am lucky to have an amazing one who's stuck with me since I was a dorky 12 year old. That's a real friend right there.
Jesus is the most important part of my life, and with every year that passes I come to realize the importance of seeking him. Although I find a lot of fulfillment in my family and job, without Him, my life has no lasting meaning. I am blessed to have a personal relationship with Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I want this blog above all else to be a testimony and reflection of Christ. You can read more about my testimony/vision here. God is my Creator, my Father, my Sustainer and my hope and prayer is to bring Him glory. 

I want to strive to let my light shine through my writing as I live out a life of faith. 

Matthew 5:15-16
 "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

Honest facts about me:
I am human
I have struggles
I am insecure
I am easily stressed
I struggle with my self-image
I read into things
I am easily hurt
I love to be loved and accepted
I hate to be hated
I am a work in progress

 I hope as you read through my blog you will get to know me even better! I write about everything from cooking, crafts, dates, and my walk with God, to Holidays, giveaways, friends and so much more. I hope you enjoy following me through life and let me know that you stopped by so I can get to know you as well!

  11. Hi Faith! Nice to meet you! I was reading up on some of your past posts, especially about your childhood. I couldn't find a way to send you a personal email so I'll comment here. Were you by any chance in ATI? My family was for several years, and we weren't hardcore, but the teaching has influenced me for sure. Your experience sounded like that so I thought I'd ask:)
    Following you now!

  16. Hey! I'm not quite mom yet...I'm only 14. But I just discovered this blog and absolutely love it! Especially since your name is Faith...that's my middle name and my best friends name! And I thought it was funny that your best friend was named nicole, because my best friends older sister is named nicole! I read "the real Faith" and loved reading how open you are about your past. Everyone has a past, and everyone has things in their past they want to hide. I am very lucky to have an amazing family and amazing friends who help me with everything I go through. Thank you for posting awesome stuff! I plan to look you up on etsy...me and my sisters also have an etsy account...we are polkadotants. I hope to read more posts sometime! 😊

  17. Hi Faith, this is Odie Langley in Rocky Mount NC and I have been following you since you began during your first pregnancy. You are about the age of one of my daughters and I have been helped many times by the inspiration I get from yours posts that seem to speak to me at the time I need it. You are a unique young woman with not only beauty but faith and wisdom. Know that you are making a difference and being able to read others posts that you share is awesome. Keep up the great work and may God richly bless you for all you do. Odie
