Julenne lost her father on Friday. He was such a sweet man. He just loved Malory so much. Always calling her over to him to "give me some suga". He was always having fun and loving his family. He will be missed very much!
We are very sad to hear of your loss and will continue to pray for you and your family.

Free music for the holidays!

Check out the link below for a free holiday cd from Oprah.
With love,

Life really is that good!

My Best Friend

This past week has been so wonderful. Stephen and I got married and I turned 30. Funny sometimes how life unfolds. We have been friends since I was 15 years old. This past year was the most challenging I have ever experienced. Never would I have guessed that God would turn my life around the way that he did. It got to the point where I thought there was no such thing as being happy. That was a lie! When your in your darkest place remember God is there. He loves us SO much, we are worthy of living life to the fullest and also being happy. He wants us to be happy.
So anyway, this year although started out ugly it has become one of the most beautiful years ever. Thank you God for Stephen Hatala, my Mal Mal, and Grace!!!

Happy Birthday! 13 is gonna be GREAT!

Happy Birthday

It's hard believe my precious daughter is gonna be 13 years old next Friday. Wow, it seems like only yesterday she was running around wanting me to run after her with a little diaper butt! She has grown into a fabulous girl. I am so thankful that she is my daughter and that I am able to enjoy her hilarious personality, beautiful smile, and the cutest chin I have ever seen! I love you Malory!!!

Wow, this movie ROCKS!

Shout to the Lord by Hillsong


Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me

He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

Chiropractic Arts by Dr. Hannah Hatala Hackett

My friend Hannah has moved back to Chattanooga and has opened her Chiropractic office! I am so thrilled to have her here. She is so kind, laid back, not to mention the BEST Chiropractor ever!!!
Malory and I visited her on Monday because I could not move my neck without wanting to cry.
Dr. Hackett was able to fix my aches and pains. I feel so much better now.
She also works wonders with children. If you know my child at all you know that she dislikes the Dr.'s office. But, Dr. Hackett was able to ever so gently talk Malory through a checkup. Malory even let Dr. Hackett work on her neck and back! I was so proud of Mal!
We are returning today for another visit:)

I encourage you to go by the office or call and make an appointment!
Here is the info:

6215 Lee Hwy
