I’m so glad you’re here. I created An Expectant Heart as a place to host my words and thoughts and share my faith journey and stories with you. My hope is that they will help encourage women like you who are seeking Jesus in their lives find Him and encourage women to live with expectant hearts. Growing up my life seemed like a pretty long season of prosperity (minus a few trials here or there), and I assumed that was just how life was – if you’re good and do good then life is good – especially if you live for Jesus. Wrong. I was fiercely in love with Jesus and following Him whole-heartedly when I entered a season of suffering and loss. I lost both my baby girl and my father within two weeks of each other all while adjusting to my new life as an Army wife. I was in shock. I struggled. I wrestled. (And sometimes I still do both). But having grown my roots in Jesus, He held me, rescued me, carried me, healed me, pruned me, and redeemed me. My season of struggle and loss and trial after trial taught me a great deal about my faith and the source of my hope. Most of all, it taught me to live with an expectant heart. And that has made all the difference.
And I want that to make a difference for you too.
I highly recommend starting here to learn what exactly it means to live with an expectant heart (there’s a pretty printable manifesto waiting for you) and so you can become familiar with my website and make the most out of your time here. This start here page is sort of like a quick start guide that will show you what you need to know and where you need to go to find something.

I’ve created a quick reference guide of scripture promises to help women find freedom when grief holds them captive.
