About me

Hey there! I’m Keeley. For someone who definitely uses up their 40,000 words a day it’s hard to sum up who I am or what makes me tick. But I’m going to do my best…First and foremost, I am a daughter of a gracious, forgiving and most loving God who has not only brought me out of some major trenches of life, but continues to guide me through every moment of my every day. Next, comes my entrusted duties of being a wife and momma bear. Wife to the most amazing man for the past 14 years—who might I add is the jelly to my peanut butter—seriously, what’s a PB&J without the J? Momma bear to three of the neatest kids I could have ever asked for. Our baby boy is almost 10.5, going on 20…in an old soul sort of way. He looks just like my husband and acts just like me. More on that to come later! Our daughter, is 8.5 and is about as independent as they come. She looks just like me, but acts just like her Dad. More on that to come later too. Then there’s our Bubba. He’s 3.5 and has filled our lives with mischief, joy and laughter we didn’t know was missing. We’re not quite sure who he looks or acts like just yet—even though most say he looks just like J. Apparently there will be more on that to come later too. Word count: 240. Not too bad so far. We are in the process of bringing home our 4th child from China—a son—who we know, God has hand chosen to be a part of our family. He is almost 4.5 and we are all counting the days to venture to his birth country and welcome him into his forever family as son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin!!! As for the rest of my roles, I am a home school teacher to our kiddos, own a very small bookkeeping business and it seems that now I am also a published blogger. I love being a stay-at-home mom and wife and am continually striving to make our house a safe place called home. Whether that be our own house, a fifth wheel or an apartment…our kids are learning quickly that home is wherever you make it. I love quality time and conversation with people over a good cup of coffee. I love taking pictures and preserving memories by scrapbooking. I love baking and cooking. I love date night with my hubby. I love hosting parties and planing family vacations—especially when it involves a campfire and any body of water. I love family. I love old barns. I love horses and swimming. I love music and pretending like I can sing, Lord knows I can’t…but it doesn’t make me love it any less. But most of all, I love Jesus and His powerful presence in my life when I invite Him in. I’m excited to share my journey through life, parenting, adoption, recovery and who knows what else with you and look forward to what God has in store through embracingthebroken.com.
