When Kelli was a young girl, on vacation with her family, she walked on the beaches of a special island in southwest Florida. She always felt closest to the Lord when she was out there with the sand between her toes, singing to Him at the top of her lungs. It was then, that she began asking God to bless her with her own family and allow them to live there near the beach. Years later, she met her husband on that beach and they discovered that they’d grown up in the very same church together several hours away. They were married on that beach. They live and play there with their children on a regular basis. God is so good. He honored her request – even though she didn’t deserve any of it.
She wraps herself up in His grace and love each day. She strives to remember to be thankful for even the little things. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 is one of her favorite verses “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” He wants us to be thankful for the little things as well as the big things, even the things we don’t understand. This is where she finds her strength to fight chronic pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis and where her joy comes from.
Kelli’s family loves their adventures. Exploring God’s creation is their favorite family past time. Being thankful and amazed by His creation is their passion. Having the opportunity to share that with others is a blessing. Kelli is a writer, speaker and mostly, a homeschool mom.
