Hi, I’m Kristin… just a southern girl whose daily desire is pleasing God with the gifts and blessings He has entrusted to me.

I completed a Bachelor of Science and M. Ed. in Elementary Education and have teaching experience in both the traditional classroom and as a distance learning instructor. My current occupations include wife, home school mama, piano teacher, and church musician.

Kristin's Family

I love trying new recipes, planting pretty flowers, learning new skills, organizing, and minimalist decorating. Join me for bits and pieces of the music of life as I share recipes, tips for mamas, encouragement, and personal stories!

The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
— Psalm 34:22
