Welcome to my online space where I write to inspire, to transform, and to help heal – both myself and others.
My name is Courtney, and I have been married to Evan since 2007. Our son, Connor, was born in 2009.
I began this blog in 2011 when our daughter Brenna was just four days old, after she had been diagnosed at birth with a very rare and severe skin disorder. I have been writing since I was young, and I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism, so writing became the way I processed a whole new frightening and beautiful world as we learned how to care for Brenna…and as we learned how to truly celebrate this difficult and wonderful life.
My writing has appeared on:
- GoodHousekeeping online
- The Huffington Post
- The Mighty
- Yahoo Parenting
- EveryDay Health
- Mom’s Choice Awards
- Scary Mommy
- Woman’s Day online
As for me, who am I?
I’m an introvert who enjoys being around people but needs a lot of time to myself to think and dream. I love to be home. Community involvement is very important to me, and I am constantly trying to help meet needs when I see them. I believe that reading books is the gateway to a bigger and more beautiful life. Cool Ranch Doritos are my favorite. I love a good boat ride, and I can get up (for a short time) on one ski. I love things to be tidy and organized. I believe with all my heart that God is the co-author of our stories, and he’s ready to share all kinds of amazing, with us and through us.
If you’re new to my blog, I encourage you to start here.
