Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m so excited to share this incredible journey of life with you.

Grateful Imperfections is an idea that came to me after realizing that I have so much to share with people yet so little time. I work full time outside of the home, after work I spend as much time as possible with my little munchkin of a toddler, Mason, and then spend the remainder of my time awake with the most incredibly handsome man I’m blessed to call my hubby, Jordan. I’m one lucky and busy girl. ☺

I originally started blogging as an outlet to deal with a pretty challenging time in my life when Jordan and I found ourselves having a hard time conceiving. There were things I wanted to get out and talk about, but didn’t want to talk about them with the people around me. So, I started to blog. It was a great release for me at the time. The more I blogged, the more people would read, and the more they would read, the more they would share their stories of struggles with me and thank me for encouraging them. I realized then that I had so much to share outside of my fertility issues that I hope would bring encouragement to my readers and here we are.

My biggest struggle throughout my entire life has been living with Spina Bifida; my biggest “grateful imperfection”. From several surgeries to multiple life restrictions, I have been through plenty being physically disabled. However, I learned the incredible love of God at a young age and learned to lean on Him through everything. He is my strength, my joy, my peace, and in all things my comforter. Growing up I always wondered “why me?”, “why hasn’t He healed me?”, “why can’t I be normal?”. It took me awhile to fully understand His purpose for my life, but I read a verse that stuck with me and changed my outlook on living with Spina Bifida.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

 This verse has challenged me in more ways than I can count.

Sometimes in life you will run into circumstances that will remind you of all your imperfections; whether it is physical, emotional, or spiritual. We all have them and it’s a beautiful thing. Beautiful? Yes, beautiful. I believe our imperfections help create depth to who we are and help to keep us humble. For me, my imperfections have made me beyond grateful.

This blog is meant to be an encouragement to you. No matter where you’re at in your life, I pray that my posts bring you joy, laughter, encouragement, and most of all allow you to become grateful for your imperfections.
