They say opposites attract. 

It’s so I don’t spend our entire budget on kid’s clothes, makeup, and leggings. 

I’m a feeler, you’re a thinker.

You’d still be wearing clothes from college, never realizing trends change. 

I’d go way left, passionate and shouting. You’d saunter right, calm and reasonable. 

You see the good in situations even when I swear it’s not there. 

When revenge is tempting, you wrap me in God’s word. 

I keep you up to speed, and you slow me down. 

While I’m making sure to enjoy the present, your busy planning for our future. 

I swear we’re messing the kids up, you insist we’re doing a great job.

All the things about you that drive me crazy, make us work. 

We pull each other back to the center, focused on God.

I never knew why opposites would attract . . . until I met you.

I love you with all my heart, Benjamin.

For those of you who don't know me, I am a stay-at-home mom to four amazing miracle kiddos! We have twin boys Jonah and Isaac, who will be six in July, an almost 8-month-old daughter Adelynn, and an angel baby Nathan Louis, who would have been seven in September. I am currently a MOPs/MOMSnext coordinator at our local church. I've been married for almost nine years to my husband Benjamin and we live in Michigan. I started writing as an outlet and want to help encourage and support others through their faith journey. I’ve really felt God calling me to share my story of faith for years now, and finally got the courage to start. I pray God will use this platform to spread His unconditional love to others.
