ONSEL is Moving!

It’s hard to believe that we began this little blog almost three years ago.  It was born out of a lot of struggles, and even more cups of coffee.  But we knew that God had placed within each of us a redemptive story to be told – of how He took the ashes of infertility and turned them into something beautiful in each of our lives. 

We all have a story to tell of how God transforms our lives.  He uses stories to connect and to encourage.  To bring hope, peace and comfort.  To let us know that we are never alone.  If we harbor that story within us, then God never receives the glory, honor and praise He deserves.  And thus, over lots of chats and Thursday morning meetings over coffee, we created this little space to share our journeys to motherhood. 

We didn’t know what that would look like, or even know if we would continue to write beyond those first few posts.  We have a lot of encouragement, and an almost equal amount of discouragement.  But ultimately God wins over Satan's whispers of doubt and we persevere into unknowns with God as our guide. 

Thank you to all who have followed along with our blog over the last (almost) three years.  We’ve made the most beautiful connections and friendships.  We’ve developed a tribe, a sisterhood, a group of “me too’s.”  Although our season of life with little toddlers turned preschoolers didn’t allow us to share as much as we wanted, the time has come (as we cry crocodile tears that they are now in kindergarten) where we have the opportunity to do more and bring more to the table.  We’ve also endured other struggles along the way which have opened greater doors for us. 

So with that, we are announcing the close of this little Blogger site as of today.  This is our last post here.  BUT, we have some exciting news!  It’s not the end, but rather a new beginning for Our Not So Engineered Life!  

We have a whole new space in the world where we invite you to grab a cup of coffee and come hang out with us. ONSEL is an entire website that is officially live now where we are able to bring you so much more in the way of words, encouragement, prayer, affiliate discounts and even products (coming soon).  We invite you to hop over to the Our Not SoEngineered Life website { }and take a look around.  And be sure to sign up for our new newsletter so that you won’t miss a thing!  We have a lot coming up and as always – GIVEAWAYS!!! We will be celebrating with an amazing giveaway! All you have to do to enter is check out our new website and sign up for the newsletter. 

** Please note, if you previously subscribed to us over here on our old site, you will no longer receive any emails from us. You must subscribe again to keep up with what's going on in the ONSEL community and to enter to win the giveaway. **

We have been working hard to get ready to unveil this and are beyond excited to see what God has in store for the growing ONSEL community! We can't wait to better serve you, encourage you, pray with you and to join hands and walk through this life together. Your story matters and we can't wait to hear it.

With much love & laughter, we say so long to this site and will be looking forward to seeing you in our new space in the world! 


A HUGE thanks to Ashley Mitchell of Big Tough Girl for designing our new space and putting up with two type-A personalities over the last few weeks! As most of you know, she is amazing and has so many hidden talents. We couldn't have pulled this off without you!
