I am a mom of 2 kids and wife to an amazing red head. I love Jesus with all my heart and strive to make my life a reflection of Him. I'm a photographer, a busy body who can't sit still, and a girl who's traveled to 21 different countries but wants to see so much more. I co-founded Ten Thousand Homes whose goal is provide HOPE and HOME to Africa's orphans and vulnerable children. I'm also the writer behind my personal blog, I Believe In Love where I share my travel adventures, my photography, and creativity.
