hi...I'm dawn.

I am the wife of a loving husband and mother to two beautiful children who is prayerfully growing into the creative woman God has called me to be.

Initially, I started this blog as a way to share my observations from reading the Bible for the first time in 2013, but it has since morphed into the enlightening, convicting and sometimes frustrating observations of my everyday life as a wife, mother, ministry leader and artist.  These 'ramblings' are expressed through the lens of a life trying to follow Jesus.

A bit about that...the rededication thing.

In 2013, while pregnant with my daughter, I began to realize that my attempts at trying to 'plan my life' were not going well.  There was not one drastic event that allowed me to hear Christ's voice, but a series of little catastrophes that finally drew me to Him.  Long story short - in finally coming to Him, I came to know His love, peace and clarity and was lead to share it in natural ways for me...through writing and through art.  I did not know that I was in such a need for a savior.

On being creative.

Maya Angelou is quoted as saying, "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have".  Our creativity, however we express it, is an inexhaustible gift from God. My way of sharing with the world is through the mediums of writing and making art. With this being a blog, you'll get mostly words, with just a little bit of art.

I hope you find something here that is familiar or resonates with you. At the very least, I pray you find encouragement, hope and a little bit of laughter.
