Hi my name is Kati Sutliff!
I’m from San Diego, California where the weather is constantly changing! I’m 28 years old, and I’m a stay at home mom and wife.
Meet my family–
Taylor– My amazing husband who knows his flesh is imperfect, but strives to be better everyday. I’m so proud of the man he is and how much stability, strength and support he brings to our family. He pushes me to be the best version of myself, and is basically my biggest cheerleader, MANcheeleader!
Kayden– My wild, compassionate, curious, charismatic eight year old son who keeps me on my toes daily. He brings light and laughter to my life that I didn’t know existed until I met him. He was the first real love I had in my life, and through his birth I experienced Jesus’ mercy and faithfulness on my life in a way I had never experienced before.
Malachi– Our miracle baby. In May of 2019 I went into labor with our daughter Adalynn. Little did we know our lives would change forever that day. We showed up to find out our little girl had no heartbeat. I broke a little more as I pushed with each contraction to get her out knowing what I was about to face was going to be one of the hardest things I would ever have to go through. I will never understand how or why we lost her, but two years later God blessed us with our son Malachi. When I was pregnant with Adalynn, God placed the name Malachi on my heart. I went into an emergency c-section at 36 weeks and two days after not feeling movement for a couple days. Turns out my antibodies were destroying Malachis red blood cells. God kept his heartbeat steady long enough for them to get him out. He ended up getting a double blood transfusion and spent the next two weeks in the NICU. Every day I’m reminded of the little miracle he is.
A little bit more about me–
I love to write. It allows me to express myself in ways words from my mouth cannot express. My passions consist of being a mama, skin care routines, makeup, and nutrition, but what I am most passionate about is Mental Health.
When I was a little girl I admired and looked up to my mom not only for what she brought to our family, but for her strength. She struggled for many years with depression, and I look back now and understand how hard it must’ve been to care for three kids while trying to care for herself. She is a warrior, and because of her I always wanted to be a mom. I’m thankful for the three kids God has blessed me with, here on earth and in Heaven, but anxiety and depression entered my life at a very young age following childhood trauma, and it’s something I have to continue to work through each day, and my biggest goal is to teach my children about Jesus, and how to walk through trials here on earth. Life can be messy and painful, but also beautiful and joyful and I want my family to see all the messy, beautiful and in between, and how God can meet you right where you are and give you the strength you need when you feel you have no strength to go on. The biggest purpose of this blog is to share my journey. My joy stems from my faith, and love for the Lord. I don’t know who I would be, or where I would be today if it weren’t for his extending mercy and grace on my life. I will touch base on all of these things in this blog, and I’m excited for you to hop on this journey with me!
Thanks for stopping by! Xoxo
