I’m Liz. Wife to my super smart husband, Ben, and Mom to my sweet daughter, Eden. I love to journal, decorate my home, DIY, listen to worship music, and spend time with my family.

I am the oldest of 3 girls so I am a leader at heart and love making sure everybody is laughing and happy. Being a sister is such an important role in my life and a terribly fun one as well.

My wonderful husband, Ben, and I met in high school. We continued dating throughout college and then married shortly after. This guy is the brains behind my DIY projects and provides much of the humor in our household. He is totally my best friend and knows me better than I know myself sometimes.

Before I became a stay at home Momma, I was a children’s ministry director for K-2nd grade. I loved every minute of it and children’s ministry is something that will always be close to my heart. I really enjoy continuing to serve in the kid’s ministry at our new church. Kids totally know how to have fun and I have fun seeing things through their perspective. Plus, I usually learn a thing or two!

When my daughter Eden was born I experienced joy in its most pure and real form. The same way God intends for us to experience it in this life. Don’t get me wrong, I have experienced many other things while having Eden as well. 😉 But this joy, God’s joy, has made me look at so many things differently in marriage, in parenting, and in life. Especially in this world, to fervently seek joy is a sweet treasure.

Thanks for stopping by Fervent Joy!
