Life has been really full, exciting and special the last few months. I have so much to share.
I recently got married to my husband Luke this past fall.
(Funny story, I actually met him the week I wrote this blog)
We had such a beautiful outdoor wedding with pretty tents and lots of joyful dancing! It was the best day of my life and a very cherished time with people very special to Luke and I.
If I could marry him again, I totally would because that wedding was AWESOME! My family did such an amazing job.
We got married the week before the Biblical fall feasts started and it was very special to be able to celebrate them as husband and wife.
It has been such a blessing learning to be a wife and still being able to write Hebrew curriculum at home.
We are also expecting our first baby girl this summer!
Being a mom has been one of my biggest dreams. When I was younger, people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I would answer, ” I don’t really know for sure, but I know I want to be a Mom.”
I honesty don’t think I’ll ever be done ‘growing up’. I can be a lot in this life that Yah has blessed me with. He could call me to something totally different and new many years down the road. But I am very thankful in this season to be ‘wife’, ‘mom’, and ‘curriculum author’.
Luke and I are both very excited to welcome this new little blessing into our family. She is already loved by so many and she’s not even here yet. We have decided we’d like to share her name before she is here in our arms.
When I was a young teen, I had decided that I’d like to name my first daughter “Hallelujah”. So when I found out that this baby was a girl, I knew exactly what her name would be. The awesome thing was, even before I came to Luke with the name, Yah had already placed it on his heart to name her Hallelujah as well. It was confirmation for both of us that even Yah knew this was her name.
When we saw her moving on the ultrasound, she had her arms raised above her head and she didn’t put them down the entire time. I like to think that she was already praising Yah even in the womb.
My life has been changing a lot in the past few months. That’s why I have been quiet on here lately, but that is about to change. I have been learning to take care of myself as I carry a life inside me. I am preparing myself, my husband and my home to add a baby to our family. We are moving right after she gets here so that’ll be another fun, big change. I’m still also learning how to be a good wife and balance work, family and everything in between. I feel like I never stop learning and I love it!
My next book in my Hebrew Curriculum is taking a bit longer than I expected.
As I began to really get into the next book, I found that it was going to be a lot bigger than I originally planned. There have been many unexpected changes, but I’m thankful for them. I only want to give you all my very best work.
So yes, it is taking awhile longer than I had hoped. And now my life is changing drastically as well. But I wouldn’t change a thing!
I wanted to give you all an update so you know what is going on and that I am doing my best to get this to you as soon as I can. But as you wait, I will be posting on here different ways you can continue studying Hebrew on your own.
Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding as I enter motherhood and learn to balance curriculum writing and caring for a new baby.
It would mean a lot if you would pray with me that Yah would get this curriculum out in the next year!
Blessings & Shalom,
