I am 34 years old! Today is a day for counting blessings and thinking about the great people in my life and most importantly the Lord’s goodness towards me and my family.

The highlights of the past year were celebrating Judah turning 3, Hosea turning 2, and that our beautiful daughter Avah was born. We also celebrated 9 years of marriage! We were fortunate to have been employed through the terrible COVID-19 pandemic and the bonus for me was that we realized how toxic negativity was and started to encourage one another to not think that way anymore.

I also stepped into a “management” role at work and have really been challenged to grow through the experience. I celebrate the team I’m on and the individuals I get to work with every day. It’s an adjustment to think of success through the lens of helping team members but it’s interesting and I look forward to learning more.

Besides our family and work, the last year was a great challenge. Lauren and I contracted covid and sadly lost Lauren’s father and my grandfather to the virus. All plans were thrown out and motivations were low.

In the next year, I hope to grow deeper relationships and be better at understanding others. I look forward to a year filled with positive thoughts and friends who uplift. I hope to spend many hours with family and have more fun.

If you’ve been reading while I was 33 wait till you see me at 34 🙂
