Hi! I’m Monna.

Here’s what I’m about.

I believe in a God who loves each person deeply.

I believe in Jesus’ statement that the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love people.

I believe in love and family and deep friendships where we have space to grow and fail and get back up again.

I am a mom with small people in my charge. If you’re in my shoes right now, you know it’s easy to become “Mom” and forget your name sometimes. I am on my way back to remembering that I have a few other passions and interests in life and figuring out how to make some time for those while still loving my family like I want.

Most of all, for me life’s greatest meaning lies in how I connect with and love others. On my blog, I do this by talking about what I find beautiful, meaningful, hopeful and sometimes hard. In my physical life, I spend time finding ways to get to know my neighbors better and find ways to serve my community. I can’t do everything I’d like to do right now since our family is still so young but I’ll still take note and share it with you. Maybe you’ll find your passion this way!

I write to expand your thinking, lift your heart and push you to be the best version of you even if it means your life takes a turn you never imagined possible.

I’m glad you decided to stop by.
