A blog dedicated to chasing the genuine and authentic self. 


Filling many roles over the years, such as daughter, minister's wife, mom, professional counselor, and friend, I have discovered a common thread in these relationships: the depth and complexity of matters of the heart. This blog is dedicated to examining these complex issues of the heart, seeking God's truths on these matters, and hoping to encourage readers to live genuine lives of authentic faith before God and others.

A little more about me...I live with my husband, Trey, in a small town in the South. Trey is a full-time student minister, and I stay home to take care of our little ones.

Speaking of our little ones, we have two biological daughters, Kate and Alisa. We are also foster parents. I can't leave out our furry babies, two dachshunds and a great dane. All of our little ones keep our home entertaining and constantly bursting with energy and activity!

Thanks for stopping by!



Genuine Love

"Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good."

Romans 12:9

Genuine Faith 

"In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith - more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire - may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ."

1 Peter 1:6-7

Genuine Self

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."

2 Corinthians 5:17
