My name is Abbey.

I'm the thankful wife of that handsome man up there, David. We met while working for RUF shortly after college and decided to get married pretty quickly. That cute toddler between us is our son, Will. He came along about 3 years after our wedding. We work and play in beautiful Hilton Head Island, SC, where David sells real estate and I manage our home and raise our boy.

I get fired up about fall weather, planting and growing things, writing, sewing, french country furniture, baking, good books, and good conversation. Discipleship and Biblical Literacy are my passions. I love to see the way that the gospel transforms how people think and live. 

This website you've somehow stumbled upon is my creative outlet designed primarily as a form of accountability for me to view my role as a wife and a mother in the context of God's much (much) bigger story of redemption. It's secondary purpose is to be a source of encouragement (see the full story of its beginning here). I hope you'll join with me on this journey of living each day by grace through faith. Maybe we can learn from each other? Why don't you introduce yourself by clicking the "contact" tab?
