The greatest thing in life is love.
Hi, I’m Dana
and you’re going to find that my personal life and work go hand and hand. I love God, my family, friends, photography, writing, Dr. Pepper (it’s my vice), being outside, sports, my dog, and life.
I believe that no matter what, you have to have hope, and lean on God. With enough faith, hope, and love anything is possible. I am blessed to be married to an amazing hunk. He is my rock (figuratively and literally, seriously his arms are like rocks).
My husband is a coach so don’t be surprised if you find me yelling at a football game or hanging out at track practice. I love watching him coach and the passion he has for his players. I am a mommy to two beautiful boys and one sassy little girl. I hold two in my arms, and one in my heart. I have no idea what “normal pregnancies” look like, because I have never had a “normal” one.
My first son was 6 weeks early, and spent 2 weeks in the NICU. E is now the craziest, most lovable son and big brother you could imagine. He is what you would call “all boy”. If you don’t find him shadowing his father at practice, he is running around the house playing some kind of ball. He loves sports just like his daddy and loves to be cuddled (mommy taught him well). He has the biggest heart and always knows how to make you smile.
My second son, Tristan, was diagnosed with a severe neural tube defect at 20 weeks. I was blessed to carry him for 12 more weeks, when the Lord called him home. At 32 weeks, February 14th (Yap, I had a Valentines Day baby), I delivered my silent angel. Carrying Tristan was one of the hardest thing I have ever had to endure, but giving him every second of life I could was the most powerful thing I have ever felt. He made me a stronger person, and gave me a deeper relationship with not only my family and friends, but with my Lord and Savior.
My daughter, A, is the closest pregnancy I have had to normal. I found out I was pregnant with her just two short months after we lost Tristan. She was our little surprise and she is nothing short of sassy. She can stand her own with her brother and they love each other dearly.
My love for the Lord is very evident in every aspect of my life. I strive to honor him in everything I do. He has shown me no matter how broken you are, he is there holding you up. I hope that with your time with me you not only get to know me more, but you see the passion I have for life. I have seen how short life can be, and the presence a single soul can have on us.
