About me…. I hate “about me’s”. Like, hey describe yourself to people you don’t know, tell everyone a fun fact, what’s your favorite movie? As if anyone has ONE favorite movie. Hey y’all, I’m a small town girl with a love for sweet tea! Wrong. Hey y’all I’m a mother who loves planning birthday parties thanks to Pinterest! Wrong. Not that anything is actually wrong with these people. In fact, I could probably learn a thing or two from them (feel free to give me some pointers). But, that’s just not who I am. My name is Casey and I’m a thirty-five year old working mother who dreads going to birthday parties. A wife whose husband goes to school during the day and works at night so we only see him for about 30 minutes in the mornings. I was once a loud mouth party girl who has since grown up and realized there was more to life than what I had been living for. I don’t want to say “I found God”, because to find something means it had to have been lost. And let me tell you, he never goes anywhere. He found me. Lost and heartbroken after suffering my first miscarriage. I can look back now and be thankful for that difficult time because it’s what made me open my eyes to what God has in store for me, how he is the ultimate healer, and how he used that situation to bring me back to him.
I grew up in church my whole life but never had the relationship with him that I do now. And because of that relationship my life has been forever changed. I struggle, what seems like on a daily basis. But, I deal with things now with a completely different perspective thanks to him. I found, that with him, all things are possible. Am I still the girl, who wants to curse at someone when they cut me off in traffic? Yes. But, I’m learning. I’m learning how to be a better person, mother, wife, and christian every single day. I found a love for Bible Journaling when I have NEVER been an artist of any kind. I found that opening up and sharing my story can only help others during their struggle. I’ve found that my plan was completely different from what God’s plan is for me. And for the first time in my life, I’m not scared of the future. I’m ready, for the ups and downs, the joys and the heartaches. Because he has called me for something so much greater. I’m looking forward to putting myself out there in hopes of helping others, and bringing people closer to him.
