Hey, I’m Leah!
I wanted to take a minute and reintroduce myself on here. So many things have changed since I started this platform so I felt it was appropriate!
I am an 8w3 on the enneagram scale and I like it that way. As you can see from the above photos you can usually find me on my way somewhere… I am not a homebody, chatting you up and laughing (or crying) alongside you… I’m a talker and love making meaningful connection and lifelong friends, or daydreaming up my next idea or plan to make things happen… I make lots of plans but can sometimes have so much going on in my head that it’s hard for me to put everything into action! I can be timid to make the first move but once we start talking I tend to act like I’ve known you forever.
I love to praise our Lord daily and share about my personal journey that began late 2017. There is something so special to me about being able to use this platform to connect with other faith-based people but even more, connecting with people that aren’t like me. Isn’t that what Jesus did? When I began my faith journey I enjoyed reading about other’s who had overcome something and gave credit to God and I pray my story will help someone do the same and bring them to Him.
I have a love for photography. I love DSLR photography as well as iPhone photography. Over the past couple months I have exclusively used my iPhone for every photo I take and have loved the learning process and figuring out my style. I share about my editing style a lot on here as well, if you’re curious.
I have found a recent love of sharing tiny bits of fashion. After having two kids by cesarean I had tried too many diets to think of and wasn’t happy with myself. After realizing that my worth wasn’t tied to my body I was able to move past those feelings, accept who I am and start to learn to love myself again and that lead me to a new way of shopping. I tend to stay pretty simple and minimalistic in regards to my wardrobe and you’ll find posts here and there about my finds!
Something I have loved doing that just began last year is serving on my church’s Worship Team. I have always loved to sing and have a creative’s heart. Singing to and for the Lord on Sundays allow me to express my love for Him and hopefully bring others to feel comfortable and inspired to express their love for Him through song!
Above all else I am the daughter of our King. I am also the wife of an Indianapolis Police Sergeant and Mama to a 5 year old and 3 year old. We spend our days at home together and we like it that way. I used to be so overwhelmed with everything motherhood related and felt like I was just trying to survive until the next day… then do it all over again. As I’ve started to dive deeper into my Bible and as faith and God have become intertwined in our everyday I have been able to see the blessings that are in the simple, sometimes hard and trying and exhausting, everyday moments. My hope is that reading this blog and me sharing struggles, hardships, and setbacks along with the good times can give you something to hold on to in knowing that our stories aren’t finished and that God’s plan will come to fruition when it’s supposed to!
