March 2018 ~ Time has flown by!  I have an updated photo family from 2016.  2015?  Yikes, I probably need a new one.  These children just won’t stop growing!  I have some gray hairs, not cool.

As I come to back to these lonely blog pages I am compelled to update a bit.  I will not delete the first introduction of myself, below, as my goals are still the same.  To remember, to give hope, to grow.  Now, four years later, I am still a mom of just three, still married to my Toby, still have the same little flower shop.  My mom has been a pivotal part of my life and focal point as I have sought to help her fight her battle with small intestine cancer.  Spiritually, I have matured from when I began and no longer question God’s goodness, but am super driven to discover His direction and will for my life.  I have been in counseling with a few different therapists and addressed my childhood, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more.  I’ve come a long way, baby!  I continue to fight the battle of Multiple Sclerosis, with a lot of the same questions I had in 2014 when I started the blog.  Thank you for praying for my battle and showing me grace through the pain.  Many Blessings, ~Dana

My name is Dana.  I’m the old lady in the picture above!  Seriously, kids are calling me “Ma’am.”  Normally, I’m a messy bun kinda girl in a perfect hair kinda world.  Join me as I explore my faith in Christ, watch as I try to figure out how to run a super sweet little flower shop in downtown Weiser, Idaho, and laugh with me at the fun experiences I have with my growing family.  I’ve been told I am transparent.  It is only in these moments of transparence (yes, I know that I wrote transparence and not transparency and I’mma keep it that way) that I have connected with others on a deeper level.  I feel compelled to share my story so that I may give a glimmer of hope to someone else.  Just a glimmer can get us through the darkest of days.  The funny thing to me about all of this is that people seem to think I know what I am doing.  Ohmystars!  I am so wingin’ it.  I express my struggles and victories only so that you all may see the truth of just how life challenges me and how I have come to understand life in Christ and that I hope you may all have that life, too.
