Our Family

Welcome to my blog! This is a place where I can share my creative thoughts and ideas in hopes it will inspire you to make something yourself! So, let’s start by introducing myself…

My Family – Jacob, Ryder and Anna Claire

My name is Michelle, and I grew up in a small town in Northeast Louisiana. I met my husband in 2011 through my church and the ministry in which we both now work for full-time. Two of my friends swore they had found the guy for me, and after telling me (and him) this for about two months, we finally “met” online through a Facebook message. After a month of messages and LONG phone calls, (we were in different states at first) we finally met face to face. No doubt, it was a relationship ordained by God. We got married within 5 months of meeting each other, and almost immediately wanted to start a family.

Our beautiful wedding was at our Pastor’s home overlooking a lake – May 12, 2012


In March 2013, our son, Ryder, was born. I never fathomed Christ’s love for me until the day He gave me a son. Through him, mine and Jacob’s love for one another grew even more, and we enjoyed life in a small 900 square foot house we bought as a “fixer upper” over the course of the next 2 years.

In late 2014, our dreams of building came true when some land came available less than 2 miles from where I was raised! We were so happy to start the building process and quickly worked to clear our lot.

As we were building, God blessed us with another baby. In August 2015, our little girl, Anna Claire, was born just one week after we moved into our new home.

Well, that is our family….Two kids, two dogs, 6 chickens, and 4 cows later…we are just a simple family loving life in the country!
