Hello and welcome!

Word from the bird is a platform dedicated to encouraging women in personal growth through self reflection as well as strengthening their relationships. Do you desire to cultivate and grow your inward beauty, appreciate and nurture your outward beauty, and flourish in your relationships? Our world encourages individuality, yet within the rhelms of a specific standard. Instead of embracing our flaws, and focusing on our strengths, it feeds off of our insecurities and tells us to be different then who we were meant to be. We have started to believe we are who the world says we are. I am only one voice, doing my best in living out my story that the Author of life has given me. What a beautiful life it is, but we don't always see it that way or treat it with the respect it deserves. Let us try to draw from it the best we can, and through our trials, learn to become women who will make a difference and stand up for our individuality, instead of being blinded by searching for a version of ourselves that doesn't exist. 

Beauty is not always what we perceive it to be. It's messy, it's confusing, and it's definitely not what all of those magazines and social media tells us it is.

Life doesn't always give you what you would expect. In fact, my life has taken twists and turns that I could have never anticipated and I am still on a journey in learning how start picking up the pieces, heal from my past, and overcome depression. I hope that my life's endeavors will somehow be used to inspire, encourage and come along side you and your journey. It is from these experiences I draw from, as to keep my content pure, raw and sincere, yet I don't pretend to know everything.

Here are some topics I love to write about.   

A Beautifl mind - inward beauty

Learn how to better experience a lasting joy and peace by healing from the inside out. It all starts in the mind.

A beautiful family

Learning to nourish your relationships and cherish the time you have been given.

A beautiful shell - beauty, nutrition, & fitness

Taking care of what we have been given outwardly shouldn't be something that is overlooked, but embraced, nurtured, and accepted.

A beautiful environment - DIY & Decor

Simplify and minimalize things in your life that can take away rather than create or produce. 

A beautiful adventure

I have traveled the world, am currently living abroad in Europe, and am grateful to have seen things in my life I never thought I would. I will share with you the treasures in this beautiful creation that I have thus far discovered. 

A little about me

I am awkward and say the wrong things at the wrong times, which is why writing is my preferred form of communication; you can delete and try again. I am an introvert who also loves the company of a few special people, including my German husband whom I adore, even though he drives me nuts sometimes. We have an incredible seven year old son that most likely teaches me more then I will ever teach him. I know I am biased, but he is truly a gem.

I started a professional music career after my son was born, and am thankful for the opportunities and good music I got to create with wonderful people. Feel free to check it out here. We have moved across the pond a few times, so between Europe and America, we have seen an abundance of the world. Other than that I'm just a simple woman, trying to figure out this thing called life in which God is my strength and source for it all.

I would love to get real with you. After all, you may never get anywhere if you aren't facing your challenges head on, getting down and dirty, and finally lifting up to clean beneath that rug you've been sweeping dirt under for years. 

Enjoy!
