Thank you for stopping by. I hope that within the pages of this blog, you will find a friend.
I hope that as I live my life out loud you will find in my words understanding, honesty and most of all love.
I am a writer, artist, wife, mother, and now “Noni”. I am passionate about health and wellness, fitness and living life full of faith, grace, and freedom.
I have loved and I have lost and my heart carries the mark of both.
May your heart find comfort, encouragement and peace I share my story.
And above all may you be challenged to LOVE BIG and to LIVE OUT LOUD!
