HELLO, IT'S ME

Angie Warren

Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm Angie, named lovingly after the Rolling Stones song (and yes, my dad and I danced to it at my wedding).

I'm happiest in sweats, with my hair in a top knot, sipping some form of coffee - and you'll likely always find me reading at the least, three books at a time, I'm sort of addicted. My husband, Justin, is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread, and my greatest supporter. God has done some amazing things in our marriage, and I count it a blessing to have loved this man since I was 15 years old. I home school our three children, and document them the best way I know how: my camera and my words.

In the fall of 2013 I lost my mother to cancer, a short + fierce battle she fought, which quickly pushed me into a very dark and turbulent grieving period. It is because of this, that my heart is tender and open to those in similar situations. Three and a half years later, my brother passed away from a drug overdose.

Anxiety and PPD are pieces of my story, as well as my deep + great love for the people in my life struggling with addiction. The story I was given has not always been an easy one, but the One who gave me the story is full of grace and love and all things GOOD.

It's because of my faith, it's because of radical gratitude, that I am here today. Welcome, I hope you find a warm and inviting hug in the words that I write.
