I'm Briana. I blog about faith, family life, marriage, motherhood, homemaking and gardening, teaching, and doing life well in the midst of trials and loss. I’m a home DIYer, a home chef, a passionate adoption advocate, a type A list maker, a craft coffee enthusiast, and I come highly experienced in grieving. I experienced six miscarriages and lost my five-month-old to a congenital heart defect. I am the wife of a school principal, mom to a preteen daughter, and a middle school English teacher, so I spend my days reading with wonderful angsty young people, trying to help them discover who they are and who they can become.
