Hello! I’m Hanna and I am blessed to be married to my best friend, and to be entrusted as the mama to four beautiful babies aged 2 to 8. All May due dates. All two years apart. How’s that for planning?
I am on a journey towards being still. With my Type A perfectionist tendencies, I have struggled with feeling that life or “success” was measured by being on the “mountaintops”. I tend to rush to get to the next one, without resting in and savoring the spaces in between. This is where life is really lived. Those seemingly mundane, waiting periods of life where life is just…happening. That’s where the truly good stuff lies. Those whispers in the pauses of life that don’t scream, “Look at me! This is what success looks like!” It’s in the every day… the living out of our hours, minutes, seconds, and mere moments, where I believe God whispers to us… “Be still and know.” This has been my life verse for as long as I can remember. I say it to myself when I’m feeling anxious or when things are uncertain. I meditate on it and it calms my soul and reminds me who is in control. Spoiler: It isn’t me.
I’m choosing to live my life joyfully and contentedly in these spaces in-between. The whispering glen(s) as it were. Join me as I continue to dwell there in my mothering, in my home making, in our home education and in how we live our days. I would love to connect with you!
