I am a stay-at-home-mom in Western New York where my husband and I had our first baby in March 2015 and our second in February 2017. For the foreseeable future, this blog is dedicated to my experiences of becoming a mother. I say “becoming” even though I’m already in the thick of motherhood because I don’t think we moms ever “arrive.” I view all aspects of my life as something still in the making, “A Work in Progress,” whether we’re talking about motherhood, being a wife, or being a Christian. I am a work in progress who is constantly being shaped and molded by my Maker. Follow my journey from pregnancy into motherhood under the category page “Mommy in Progress,” with updates about my first daughter under the category “Ella Full of Joy” (find these by clicking on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of your browser window). And follow my second pregnancy by going to the page “Waiting on Hope” in the same menu.
