My parents named me Kelsey Herald Smith and I was mortifyingly embarrassed of my middle name for the first 20 years of my life. Then I learned that Herald meant messenger so I claimed that title and now wear it proudly.

I’m a messenger of a lot of things- the benefits of Chuy’s happy hour, weird embarrassing stories, miracles God has done in my life, funny and endearing stories about the sweet kids I get to call my friends.

I hope this blog is a transition into my messenger title becoming a little bit more “official.” I want to write good words about good things my good God is doing. I want this blog to be a showcase of all the good things in my life- the celebratory, happy moments that are easy to call good & also the hard and growing moments where goodness resides and abounds as well.

I hope you’ll join me. Thanks for being here.
