Welcome!  I’m so glad you stopped by.  Take a moment and browse.  If you like something, or if you don’t, I’m just happy you are here.

I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5.  This is my life verse.  Though I try desperately to live each day in Christ, I find it is easy to be swayed in other directions, and the next thing I know I’m trying to do everything on my own.

A while back, okay a long while, I was born in Portland, Oregon.  I was raised by a pastor (my dad) and a teacher (my mom). Can you imagine? Actually it was a pretty cool upbringing.  I loved my childhood.

I never really desired to work in ministry after being raised in that setting, but it’s funny how God has his own agenda for our lives.  After graduating from Cal State University, with a degree in Communications, I worked at a Christian university.  Just when I thought I had enough of the “college ministry setting,” I found myself on staff at a large church in Southern California in their Student Ministries Department.  Then my life took a turn–a good turn.

That leads me to my family—my greatest joy and fulfillment.  I am married to Matthew Keane, a Jamaican born, software engineer, guitar playing, vocal artist, golf loving, hard working, amazing guy.  Life is never dull at our house.  I actually wish things would get boring for a while.  We have two beautiful, teenage daughters, Madeline and Isabelle.  You could say we are a close family, and I love everything about that.

Besides being a wife, a mom, and wearing a few other hats, I enjoy writing—thus this blog.  My interests include, but are not limited to, hanging out with family and friends, paper crafting, reading, knitting, traveling, cooking, and I use that term loosely…. I’ve invested in a lot of cooking gadgets to “help” me become all things gourmet.  The most recent purchase–a pressure cooker.  God help me! I’ll let you know how that goes.  And lastly, on occasion, or many occasions, I love a Sonic (half regular/half sweet) iced tea. Nothing beats Sonic ice cubes.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you return very soon.  If you feel so inclined, please leave a comment sometime.  I would love to get to know you and hear your story.

  3. I live in Gilbert, Arizona. I am in the insurance business and was visiting one of my agents when I saw a bumper sticker on the back of what I believe was a suburban that said http://www.alittlemessy.com. I’ve been meaning to visit the site and as a believer, I’ve been touched by the godly theme. Ironically, our family moved here from Parker, Colorado. Great site and insight!

    • Gene, I’m so sorry I’m just now reading your comment. Thank you for your kind words. I’ve taken a little sabbatical from writing, but I’m back now. You are from Parker? Wow! I’m so glad our paths have crossed. Thank you for taking the time to comment and reach out.
