Hi, I'm Katie,

I live in Illinois with my husband of 10 years, Peter, 2 boys and our 2 puppies.

I am passionate about encountering and then sharing the message of Jesus through music, words, pictures and teaching....and whatever else He puts for my hands to do. The Katie-Did was born in 2010 out of a desire to share my motherhood, wife and daughter-of-God journey. There are so many moments as a mom I could have never expected, and even more full of joy and hope. 

Someone once told me my About page was the most visited page on my website and I should make it perfect. In all realness, I don't know what that looks like, but I do know, if this is where the most people visit then I'd want you to hear this: If you are depressed, seek help, just one person who will listen to you. If you are depressed, you are not failing, and there IS hope for you. If you are anxious, I know what that's like, and I'm sorry. If you feel like you have no idea what you're doing--hi. If you don't know if it's worth it to make the next right choice--it is. And that's the thing....life is all about making the next right choice, and not worrying about all the ones which follow it. I have gone long seasons out of the Word and it has honestly made my knowing what the next right choice is. So stay in. Just open, read something and apply what it says. The Scripture is not something you can't understand and His Words ARE meant for all humans. You are not below or beneath doctrine and you are not too far He can't reach you with it. He is real, He exists, and He is doing things. And when you are on the kitchen floor, like I was 5 years ago, holding that baby bottle praying for ANY of Jesus to shed some of Himself on you....it's coming. Hold. On. 

If you were at my house I'd sit you at my table and we've had coffee and probably pancakes because I always have the ingredients for pancakes. I'd ask you to stir something and probably force you to like my dogs. May this space read just like that. Hugs.

If this little space of mine is of any encouragement to you; it's Jesus.
