Hope can Bloom again

helping you find hope, healing, and happiness after loss


Devoted friend, wife & mother. Grateful Jesus follower.


Currently blogging to share hope.


On August 30, 2015, my life was changed forever. I lost my son, Jacob to a drunk driver. As you can imagine, my world shattered. My faith was shaken.

Have you gone through a loss similar to mine? If you’ve been alive for more than a few years I know you’ve been through losses that have stunned you, because life is a journey fraught with heartbreak that can devastate our faith.

But it’s also a path the Holy Spirit walks with us. A path that can lead us to deeper intimacy with the Father than we’ve ever imagined. That’s what happened to me. It’s what can happen for you.

Do you wonder what that looks like? Do you long for inspiration that will show you the Light awaiting you? Then you’ve come to the right spot. I don’t have all the answers. In fact, I don’t have many at all. But I do know we’re on this trek together and there is great hope for the future.
