A little bit about me...

Hello Friend,
Do you want to be encouraged, inspired, 
and reminded of God's love?

Welcome to One Beautiful Life...

 where my heart for the Lord and His word, advocating for children, creating beauty in my home,
 and floundering through parenthood and marriage collide!  I am so glad you are here.

It is my desire to share what God has done and continues to do in my life through this blog. It is a place where I offer a glimpse into "One Beautiful Life" as our family continues to walk and live in the fullness of God. I love to give praise and glory to my Father in heaven whenever I can! This blog has given me the creative outlet to do just that in a way that I hope leaves you wanting more of Him! Thank you for being a part of our journey. I am humbled, encouraged, and thankful for your friendship, your emails, your comments, your prayers, and your love. 
I am glad you are here. 

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at the right hand in the heavenly realms..." Ephesians 1:17-20
I am a daughter of the LORD and am growing in His love each day.
Tucked into all that... I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a blogger, and a friend.
My family is very dear to my heart and I find joy in creating a home.  A home where laughter, growth, love, creativity, thankfulness, giving and contentment abound.

                     Whether through the lens of my camera, other blogs I love to visit, or the sometimes seemingly mundane tasks of life, I seek to find beauty in everything around me.  It is always there... waiting for the taking.
Every friend that walks along side me has something to share.  That contribution allows friendships to form and grow across spans of miles all over the world.  It creates a community that's potential knows no end.  I laugh out loud with pure joy as I think of what the Lord can do with that kind of love, unity and support among women.  Bring it on!

I hope you decide to stay awhile, stop by now and again, and share your thoughts.
I am blessed to be one of your friends.
Love, Dawn~
