"All Things"

An adoptive mom who loves Christ, family, running, fitness, and all things health related.


My name is Heidi and I am happily married to my husband, Brian, who I affectionately call “Beeker.”

Beeker is what dreams are made of, and I am one lucky girl to have him!  Beeker and I are in the process of adopting our daughter, who we will name Bella, from Ethiopia.  Beeker and I are high school sweethearts (we have been together since we were 16 and 17 years old).  When we were dating, he would always call me his “Bella,” which is Italian for beautiful.  Whenever we would talk about having kids we would always refer to our future daughter as Bella.  So, when we were given the choice to choose a gender in our adoption we looked at each other and just said, “Bella.”  So, we know that we are definitely getting our Bella!! However, we are also on the list for siblings, so we could possibly also be bringing home Bella’s brother or sister….seriously, my heart would explode!  Oh my goodness…..

Beeker, Bella, and my family are my whole entire life and will probably dominate a lot of this blog.

I also LOVE to run and am into anything fitness related and eating cleanly.

I intend to use this blog to document my health and fitness endeavors.  Why did I choose the title, “All Things”??  Well, because it will document all of the things in my life, the title is appropriate.  However, the title is after my favorite Bible verse, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  Yes, I can do all things.  I hope you enjoy reading about them!

  1. Hi! I’m new to your blog but I love it already! I am also an adoptive mom… we adopted our son from South Korea in 2001. It’s an amazing process and I wish you all the best as you await Bella! The waiting is the hardest! I will continue reading your blog… just wanted to say Hi!

  2. Hi there!! I just came across your blog and love it. I am a foster mom (hopefully eventually adoptive mom to someone who needs a forever family). I too titled my blog with my favorite Bible verse in mind Hebrews 12:1-2. Just wanted to say hello and let you know you have a new reader! Many blessings your way!

    • Hi!! I love that you are a foster mom and pray that you will also become an adoptive mom in the future! It looks like we are kindred spirits 🙂 I look forward to following your blog, too. Love that verse!!

  3. I just found your blog and wanted to stop in and wish you the very best of luck with your Adoption. xoxox.
