No matter how hard I try I can’t write a lick worth reading in my office. Anything interesting and worth reading needs to be well thought out, created in a place that relaxes and inspires… For me that space is not my office, not my comfy computer chair, it’s my living room with my hymns playing and a cold cup of coffee beside me. Why cold? 4 kids… that’s why, I forget what anything hot tastes like, on the plus side I haven’t burnt my mouth on something in years!
I have 4 kids, you read that right… proof below. We just had our little peanut in November, she shares a birthday with her biggest sister! We’ve got 3 girls and a boy. 4 kids have been a chaotic blessing from God. We’ve also been blessed with the ability to travel with our kids often, my husband is self-employed and because of this, we get to go on amazing trips. In 2017 we rented an RV and drove across the United States and then back home across Canada over a month-long trip, the year after that we went to Costa Rica and rented a house with family. It’s been pretty incredible seeing this world through the eyes of our kids. Last year we got to host a missionary from Costa Rica in our home. We’d love to go and work with them in San Jose one day, but with our kids being so little it just doesn’t seem like the right time yet. We spend most of the summer up at the cottage and most of the winter inside trying to stay warm.
I went to school to be a nurses aide and worked at Seven Oaks ER for a few years, I really loved this and my husband and I had the medical field in common (at the time), he was a paramedic for the city. Since then we’ve both left our jobs and have become parents and entrepreneurs. He is the most inspiring business owner I know, working hard to provide for his family but still being home and also very involved in our church.
A couple of years ago I received the opportunity to combine my love for the medical world with my photography, I’ve started my own organisation that offers photography to families who are dealing with a terminal diagnosis or have lost a baby, we’re called Light the Shadows Project. I hope to keep using my God-given talents to be a light and a blessing to families, so if you know someone whose hugely deserving and going through some really difficult times please reach out to me and I’d love to connect with them! I do quite a few a month and have had to limit them in the past so just send me a message and ask!
Thank you for stopping by my little space. I’d love to meet your family.
