The Truth: You are loved. You are Beautiful. You have a purpose.


Hello dear reader.

Welcome! I’m so glad your here. Let me introduce myself:

I’m the wife of a farmer, mother of three adult daughters, owner of two crazy cats and one beagle, a knit and crochet addict, and a want-to-be gardener.

I am passionate about 2 things:

  • Telling everyone about God’s love for his creation, you and me. You are loved beyond understanding, the way you are, flaws, faults, seen and hidden part, all of you, loved by your Creator.
  • Showing the world God’s love of beauty. I like to use the term, Practical Beauty. It’s where function meets aesthetics. The items we use should be beautiful and the beautiful things of the world are importantly practical. (I have an Etsy shop, Green Gable Studio Etsy Shop,  full of Practical Beauty, and a sister blog at

Most days you will find me reading, writing, knitting or crocheting either at my kitchen table or upstairs in my studio I’ve named, Green Gable Studio. (Ah, the empty nest! I’ve taken over one of my girl’s bedroom.)

As a writer, I have been featured in Guideposts, various church papers, newspapers, and devotional books. I’ve published two women’s devotional books, and am working on a new devotional book for farm families.

Yes, You Can! devotional book Hello Beautiful! devotional book.

Thanks for stopping by.
