I can honestly say 2015 was a top-notch year. I look forward to all that 2016 has for me relationship wise, professionally, spiritually.

Relationship Wise: I want to be a friend who is willing to abandon her plans for someone in need. A friend that opens her home willingly. A friend that loves others with abandonment. A friend that places her phone down to engage in conversation. A friend that speaks truth and builds others up.

Professionally: As a new Child Life Specialist, I have so much learning and growth ahead of me. Looking forward to becoming the best specialist I can to the patient’s and families I serve at CMH.

Spiritually: Planning Love What Is True Scripture Memory Year 2, Joining several life group girls in reading the Bible in a year, tithing without worries.

I’ll be praying for you friends. Let’s do this 2016.


When you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.
