Heather is originally from St Louis but is now livin' the dream in sunny Orlando, FL. Her husband is a medically retired wounded warrior, having served in the USMC and the Army. Together, they homeschool 2 out of their 5 kids as the oldest 3 are now attending college. Heather is passionate about sharing her life and faith with others as a source of hope and encouragement, so she created The Mosaic Life where she minces no words about raising teenagers, living with lupus, raising a child with cancer, fighting to end human trafficking, and life as a wounded warrior family. She's also working on her first book and getting ready to start her second. If she finds a free moment, Heather loves to read a good historical fiction novel, spend time with her tribe, love on her German Shepherd rescues (Meka & Murphy), write content for Love Missions (an anti-trafficking organization), and serve as the Treasurer of Women at Rest Ministries (a grace ministry which helps women and families).
