My name is Krista Smith.  I have been married for twelve years and have two super-awesome, loud, hysterical kids.  I have spent almost my whole life in South Jersey, which means I own as many pairs of “ducking boots” as 7-inch gold hoop earrings. After graduating with a degree in civil engineering in 2008, I spent the next couple years working at a nuclear power plant.  I left in 2010 and started drawing for a living so that I could remain home with my loves and also pursue a life of creative endeavors.  Since then, I have focused on blogging, illustrating, and photography…as well as starting our first year of homeschooling.  Looking back, I can see God moving ever so gently in the everyday parts of life to bring me to a better, deeper understanding of His love and provision.  I eagerly look forward to the future and the calling God has for our family to live out His Gospel in our home, community, and world!
