I’m hearing a lot of; “Oh this past year has been the greatest one yet.” “It’s been the best year of my life.” “2014 was such a great year, ready for another one!” “The past year was full of so many good things-welcome to the New Year.” And so it got me thinking…of my past year.. And I couldn’t help it. Pretty soon tears were sliding down my cheeks. This past year was probably the hardest year of my life. In some ways it could almost seem like a ‘wasted year’ with no real big accomplishments to show for. But, deep in my soul I felt a stirring, a peace and a smile through my tears, gently telling me that those 12 months of difficulty, tears, and pain were not for nothing.

a lil peek into my life
I'm Julia-- married to farmer Dan. And yep, we're the 25-something year old Sweethearts over here in a tiny one-light-town in Tn. I absolutely love being married and doing life together with my hubby. I love Jesus and love loving on people-being Jesus to them! Also maybe a bit of a social butterfly. I will admit to being an organizing-freak. I enjoy playing with photography. We are on a ttc journey & we are full of hope, knowing that God is scripting our story, but the struggle to hand over that pen to God is very real. January 2015 God called us to minister to kids in foster care & we are very passionate about sharing Jesus with them. To keep my head & heart calm I have notes all over my house and journals everywhere I go..so my blog is an overflow of all of the above, bits and pieces of my heart and our journey..I would love to connect with you and hope you stick around! We are so blessed..
