I’m Katie.  I have two gorgeous kids who call me mom, and a handsome man who calls me wife.  I’ve been given a heart for the struggles of women – whether it be work, marriage, mommyhood, peace, pain or brokenness.  My goal is to be open and honest, and to provide a safe place for a laugh, a cry, or an “I feel the exact same way” hand on your shoulder.  I’ve been there.  And we can make it through together.


This blog started as a baby book for our children, Dear Brooke Allen (see tag to read previous posts).  As my blog grew in popularity, I realized that people weren’t so much reading the growth updates as they were reading the blogs I wrote about my thoughts on Christian parenting, marriage, and current events.

I renamed this blog with inspiration from my favorite verse, Colossians 1:17 – He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.  God is sovereign.  He is already ahead of me in the plan He has set for me, and every piece of my life is held together in Him.  This verse is my daily prayer as life throws curveballs my way, and my reminder that I’m not alone in this.

I am not perfect, but I have a God who is.  I am constantly learning and growing in my relationship with God, my husband, and my children.  I may be wrong about things.  I may change my mind and retract previous statements.  Being challenged is one of my favorite things, and I will do my best to be open and honest with you as I work out my relationships and what lines up with the Word of God.

You’re not going to agree with everyone I post here.  And that’s ok.  This community is not for everyone.

Thanks for reading.  I hope you enjoy what you read.  Interact on my posts.  It’s ok to share them on social media.  Feel free to email me with questions, comments, or criticism.  I appreciate it all.  And I do it all for the Glory of God.
