Hi, I’m Beck! I’m a mama, a partner, a dreamer, an advocate, a believer, a writer, a laugher, a Jesus lover. I’m always looking for a good story, because I believe words matter! They have power to inspire, comfort, and transform. I want to hear yours, and this is where I share mine.
Nothing is more beautiful than when mercy shows up. My heart gets pumping when I see people spend their strength for the good of those who are weak.
Seventeen years ago my husband and I began church ministry with stars in our eyes, for each other and the church. God has been teaching us bold lessons of love, sacrifice, joy, grace, self-discipline, and submission ever since.
Our son, Max, surprised us five years into our marriage. Children hadn’t been our plan, but God has a sense of humor and great wisdom. Bouncing baby girl, Maggie, joined our family 4 1/2 years later. I wrestle with motherhood. Sometimes wearing it like a second skin, most times like an ill-fitting coat. I’m an accidental mama. Some days I wonder how I got to this hectic place, and then I remember – the grace of God.
Motherhood is a privilege, a responsibility, a gift, a refiners fire. I’m not so sure it’s my calling.
Pounding out words, soaking up beauty, taking risks to spread the news of mercy, advocating for the vulnerable, encouraging women, those things make my heart sing.
Linger and visit often, you are welcome here!
