Hi!  I’m April, and to answer the obvious question – No, my birthday is actually in June. Welcome! I’m humbled you’re here and hope you’ll leave with a little piece of inspiration.

Coleman-41bwI am…

A Christian, saved by God’s overwhelming and undeserved grace, for His glory.

Blessed beyond measure to be married to my best friend and mom to two precious and spunky daughters under 5 who keep me grateful, laughing, and exhausted!

An education professor and former elementary teacher, currently teaching online and loving it, daily trying to get a grip on balance.

More creative than organized, with more ideas than time.

A glass-half-full thinker, keeping my sanity with lots of prayer and exercise and a little bit of coffee and chocolate.

This blog is named after my late grandmother’s favorite word serendipity, which she used often, meaning “an unexpected pleasant surprise.” She possessed an extraordinary ability to love God and people, to live simply but generously, and to recognize and celebrate the everyday serendipities. I want to be more like her.

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” 
– Ephesians 3:16-21
