declaring what we love

one of the ways we grow up is by declaring what we love” – Shauna Niequist, Bread and Wine

If I could sit in a cafe with one writer, it would be Shauna Niequist.  I love the way her stories evoke so much emotion in me.  The way I feel like, “yes, that’s me too!”.  I love the way I can relate to her, and the way I aspire to connect with readers like she does.   I’m excited that I will actually get the chance to sit around the table with Shauna at Hope Spoken this weekend.

There are so many prompts in this book that I have taken and ran with, but today as I sit at the Amsterdam airport traveling home from a 10 day DREAM trip to Uganda with Sole Hope, I want to focus on and declare what I love.

I love people.

I love connecting with people, and connecting people to each other.

I love to travel and see new places, meet new people, experience new cultures.

I love to tell a good story through photography + writing.  I love the way my camera allows me to connect with people.

I love relationships, and hearing peoples stories + dreams.  I love dreaming with people.

I love quiet mornings with Jesus and coffee.

I love freedom and redemption.

I love to be outdoors enjoying Gods beautiful creation, almost like I’m breathing him in.

I love to worship.  Alone with my headphones on, in a corporate setting, or with my little family.

I love being a mom.  being a wife.  being a sister.  being a daughter.  being a friend.  I love being a part of my little family, and a part of the bigger family of God.

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends
