Welcome to my chaotic world. Sometimes, it’s chaotic because of life circumstances… but usually it’s chaotic because I excel in CHAOS. I guess I find it more interesting that way.
My Life: I love my God, I love my husband, Brian, and I love my 2 sons (Chance & Paxton). I’m a sinner. I cheated on my husband in 2006 and found myself drifting treading water in a sea of lies, but I’m learning about true redemption and am now clutching onto the life-raft that is Jesus. I’m finding my way home.

My Profession: First and foremost, I am the CEO of my home. I make sure everyone’s loved up, fed up and clothed up. I have also been a Worship Leader/Pastor over the last 15 years and am currently the Worship & Creative Arts Pastor at Paseo Christian Church in El Paso, Texas.
My Blog: I write about anything and everything that’s on my heart. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I’m not. I’ve offended many but have rarely found myself offended. I’m not a candy-coater and I’m not a truth-fluffer… not anymore, at least. I’ve been to the darkest of places and don’t ever want to return there. I have been redeemed by the Most Holy, so “fluff” is not something I’m capable of.

Here’s some quick details about me:
Born September 25, 1978.
Grew up Seattle, Washington.
Moved to Bellevue, Washington in 6th grade. Graduated in 1996 from Interlake High School.
Moved (by myself) to Portland, Oregon. Graduated from George Fox University with a B.A. in Social & Behavioral Sciences. Basically Psychology.
Met my soulmate, Brian in February 2000. Married him on May 27th, 2001. After a LONG wait many prayers, miraculously had our first born, Chance Hayden, on September 1st, 2005. We had our second son, Paxton Joel, on November 6th, 2008.
In January 2011, Brian and I followed God’s calling to El Paso, Texas and joined forces with Paseo Christian Church (a blossoming church plant). In the desert is where we are choosing to raise our family.
Hobbies: In my spare time (let’s be serious… I don’t really have any of that right now, but let’s just play this game anyway), I enjoy writing music, blogging, ORGANIZING, photography, golfing, hiking, gardening, spending time with my friends & family and a good cup of coffee.
