Bio: Follower of Christ, wife of Andrei, mama of 2. I love the country of Belarus, the University of Kentucky Wildcats, my cowboy boots, saucy food & eastern Kentucky. I would travel anywhere I could. I enjoy reading, hiking, and swimming in the ocean. I love starting my day outside in the early morning with a cup of coffee and my Bible & journal. I have a love-hate relationship with cooking. We've homeschooled for the past two years but transitioned to public school this year. I've also recently declared myself a minimalist and am loving every minute of that journey. One of my favorite quotes is from Jim Elliot, who said, "Wherever you are, be all there," I try to live my life that way. I believe we all have a purpose. I love grappling with that belief and seeing how it looks in the mundane everyday as well as the paramount moments.
