About Shelby


Hey there!

I'm a writer, a hope*writer to be exact. You can learn more about that here, but my main roles are wife and mom. I am married to my college sweetheart. He's a scientist, an above-knee amputee, and an amazing dad to our three daughters. We have been graced with three little girls, sweet Emily (5 years), spunky Avalyn (3 years) and sassy Olivia (1 year). Evidently, my hands are full, but my heart equally full.

I'm here to motivate you as you focus on what's right in front of you as a woman, wife, mom, and SO MUCH MORE. You are so much more than a label or two, and I can't wait to get to know unique and amazing YOU! Speaking of getting to know, let's connect on Instagram. It's my favorite social media place. You can find me here.

Here's what I hope you'll find in this space:

  • quick inspiration from scripture, from books, from personal experience that apply to your right now life.

  • practical help to make the most of the season you're in.

  • ideas for creating rhythms of rest within your daily routine.

  • encouragement to help you navigate intense emotions.

I'm sure you'll read about writing, parenting, homeschooling, and outdoor adventures within this space. I'm sure you will NOT receive cleaning tips. Do you see the blurred-out, messy counter in that picture to the left? Yeah. I'll try to keep it real around here by sharing pictures of my messy, yet meaningful life in blog posts.

My first book releases November 16th, 2020. I'll be giving more details on that in the coming months.

I'm glad you're here.
