I am passionate about my faith and my family and I blog about anything that inspires me--from scripture to do-it-yourself ideas. I love being with my family, seeing new places, photography, diy and warm weather! In everything I do and wherever I go, I long for others to see Jesus in me.

Why Wisdom?

Celebrating the Years
