Mama to five boys and 1 girl in heaven, Ava Hope. I am also the wife of a pastor. We live here in North Jersey, but I’m from the pacific northwest, south of Seattle. True to my PNW roots I’m a fan of coffee and the rain.

Life is busy, tiring and beautiful! I love my savior, redeemer and friend Jesus. And I love to share about how He is continuing to grow me and my family as we serve and walk with Him.

Some things that I enjoy, encouraging women in life and in the Lord. I love running, health, and adventure. I also love good food! And there is so much good food here in the New York/ New Jersey area!

We lost our little girl Ava Hope in January of 2019. She had a Chromosome abnormality Trisomy 18. I have been sharing as I process her loss and the grief that accompanies. I know that I am not alone in my grief and hurt that affect us all, as we live in this broken world. But I also love to talk about the hope and the firm foundation that is found in Jesus.

I chose the name ‘Pick More Daisies’ for my blog, to signify slowing down, enjoying life and enjoying God’s creation.  Pick More Daisies
