When the kids are fussing, dinner is burnt, and you're equal parts frazzled and exhausted, it's difficult to find your keys, much less your joy. I can help!

Hey Y'all!

Welcome to Laughs & Jesus!

You're gonna hear tales of some comical, head-shaking moments.  But the crazy part is God uses these stories to encourage and reveal some pretty amazing stuff about who He is. I'm in awe every time.

I was once a single mom of two and I understand how overwhelming that role can be. (Those days provided some of my best stories though!) When I met my husband, Eric, I became the mom of four kids. Our blended family has kept me running like a chicken with my head cut off, but I wouldn't have it any other way. (Also gave me hilarious stories.) I'm now an empty nester mom of adult children living story-filled lives of their own . . . so I now have more time to tell you all the funny things. Oh, and there are some doozies!

Most importantly, I trust Him to use all of this to bring you joy and draw you closer to Him. If God can do that - and I believe He can - it is all worth it.
