I’m Teresa, the writer behind this blog.  I’ve tried quitting coffee twice (with no luck), I’ve given up my dreams of a spotless home, I have way too many aspirations and get absolutely no sleep. I long to be more like Christ each day and though I fail His Grace sustains me.  Also, I’m crazy about my Hottie Mc Hottie husband who I met when we were both 13 yrs old.  We have memories of doodling each other’s names on our school notebooks and holding hands for the first time at an ice-skating rink. Ten years later we got married and have seen the hand of God at work throughout our lives. He has blessed us with a wonderful story, full of redemption from sin and his undeserving grace. We grew up and spent most of our lives in sunny South Florida and have recently relocated to the suburbs of Nebraska.  Crazy!

Six years ago, we welcomed our beautiful daughter Grace Olivia, whose name is a reminder that our salvation is a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8). She has filled our life with more joy that we know what to do with and our days with beautiful and wild adventures. She’s the reason why we began blogging. We wanted her to have a space that she could visit and witness love documented. Our hope is that she’d see Christ’s fingerprint through all of the words written, photographs, projects, and adventures.

We welcomed our second babe Haddon Alexis (our rainbow baby) on January 2015. He is full of love and doesn’t quite stop eating.  He is loving and cuddly and I just want to hold him in my Ergo until he’s at least 23. These days he only answers to “Lightning McQueen” and would eat 5 bananas a day if I let him.  Emory is our third beautiful baby, who has enough personality to keep us on our toes for the next 20-30 years. We were sure that our family was complete after she was born and proceeded to have a permanent procedure to complete the Gonzalez clan.  March 2018, we found out we were expecting our FOURTH baby and heard our doctor tell us that “the egg has somehow migrated to the uterus.”  We believe that this is yet another way that God has blessed our family and are overjoyed to be welcoming our baby boy October of 2018.

Our hope is that we’d point others to Jesus and that all those who visit our site would see that we are all in need of a savior (Romans 3:23) and that only through Him we have forgiveness of sin (Ephesians 1:7).

      I love your blog so far! I found you on ABFOL’s “One Project at a Time.” Your story sounds a lot like mine and Daniel’s, complete with an adorable little girl with the name Grace! Mine is Lily Grace. I can’t wait to keep reading!
