I am Bethany Anne Stedman.
I am the wife of a wonderful, devoted, and loving husband, who happens to be a “pragmatic designer“. A big part of our story right now is that my husband is currently fighting stage four melanoma.
I am the mother of a wonderful little boy and an adorable baby girl.
I am the mother of a special needs child.
I am a homebirthing, babywearing, extended breastfeeding, herb loving, chicken tending, crunchy momma.
Sometimes I make things with needles and thread or recycled materials.
I am a homemaker.

I am a daughter and a sister and an aunt.
My closest friends are spread all over the world.
I am a former ex-pat who lived in Prague, in the Czech Republic, for 4 years.
I am a wanderer, a traveler, and sometimes I feel a bit lost.
I am a kindred-spirit to a few, a friend to some, an acquaintance of many.
I am open, genuine and transparent, but not often vulnerable.

I am a want-to-be writer.
I am an amateur cook and the daughter of a gourmet chef (not by profession).
Trying new foods and making use of unique edibles excites me and I’ve been known to eat weeds.

I am a dancer in spirit.
I am a dreamer and artist at heart.
I am a frustrated artist, with little real skill.
Yoga is my movement of choice and although I completed a teacher training program I have yet to make much use of my certification.
I am a college graduate with a degree in History from Seattle Pacific University.
I am an American currently living between Seattle, Washington and Scottsdale, Arizona.

I am a sinner, who often falls short.
I am a believer, who often calls for grace.
I am a doubter, who often needs reminders to faith.

I am sensitive.
I am analytical.
I am critical.
I am a woman.

I am poor by many standards, but rich by others.
I am a child of The King.
I am loved by God.
I am…me.

Rejoicing in the journey –
