This is my Joy Season

2020 was one of the best year’s of my life. Recently I spent some time reflecting on why that was and I realized something profound. In 2020 I wasn’t hustling. I had a newfound freedom after leaving a toxic situation and I felt so light. I followed every idea that I received—believing it was from Jesus—and I didn’t worry about whether the idea was going to make money or not. I was really just following the joy. 
When I got an idea that excited me, I went with it. When it came time to write a blog, I wrote whatever was on my heart. I didn’t worry about strategies or niches or anything like that. It was a season where I simply followed the leading and inspiration of the Lord. 
But then I lost focus. I stumbled and started wondering how I was going to keep it up. How was I going to keep getting new and improved ideas? How was I going to keep making the amount of money I was making? I took my eyes off of Jesus and honestly, I got a little lost. 
After nearly a year and a half of feeling lost, unsure, and frightened, I am finally getting back to myself again. What that means for this season is that anything to do with my business that doesn’t excite me or fill me with joy is being released. If I’m dreading doing it, it’s gone. 
I know this isn’t a realistic way to live my entire life because there are things in life I don’t necessarily want to do but they still need to get done. Dishes, cleaning, taking out the trash for example. But this is MY business and when I flourished in 2020 it wasn’t because I was committed to doing things I didn’t want to do but felt I had to. It’s because I gave myself the creative space to just do what felt inspiring and exciting. 
Whatever you do with your business (if you have one), please make sure it brings you joy or at the very least the end result will. Otherwise, what are you doing friend?

More About Me!

I published my first book in 2020 and went on to publish several more books within a year. I write fiction and non fiction and love to help others write and publish books as well.

I was adopted as a baby, have gone through stage four metastatic cancer, and nearly lost my life during my last pregnancy due to placenta percreta. I believe that we go through difficult circumstances so that we can reach back into the fire with buckets of water to help others.

My life ambitions include expanding my non profit organization to provide financial relief to families going through an unexpected medical crisis, building safe haven homes for women and their children escaping domestic violence situations, and learning how to homestead in order to become more self sufficient.



I dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, switched to an alternate school and was valedictorian the following year.


I met my husband on a sort of blind date when I was 15 and have been in love with him ever since (married for nearly 15 years now!).


I’ve always homeschooled my three amazing kids because I genuinely love getting to hang out with them every day.
