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 the trenches of addiction, but continues to guide me in the journey of recovery as well as in 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 10.5 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 8, 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 almost 6 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 going to be 1 soon…has completely stolen all of our hearts and came out of the womb ready to be a toddler. We’re not quite sure who he looks or acts like just yet. Apparently there will be more on that to come later too. Word count: 240. Not too bad so far. As for the rest of my roles, I am a homeschool 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 to swim. 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, recovery, parenting and who knows what else with you and look forward to what God has in store through embracingthebroken.com.
