Beloved Heritage

Today is my mama’s birthday.


From her, I inherited my nose, my smile, Diet Dr. Pepper addiction, fierce Nertz skills, and a hundred other things.

From her, I learned to love scripture, to cherish family, and to break necessary rules that stop a heartfelt journey towards God.

With her, I developed the strength to withstand loss and the desire to live life fully.

My little angels

Because of her, I know how to learn to love these girls better every day.

3 generationsTogether, we are painting a picture of generations of faith.

Your heritage has created you to be the person you are today, both the good and the painful. God takes it all and creates a unique masterpiece that is called BELOVED.
