Hi! My name is Elise. I'm a wife, mother, vocal artist, teacher, writer, and daughter of the King.
Sometimes I forget to keep that last role first in my heart, but I'm trying my best to embrace 
and live my truest identity.

Here I am with my handsome husband. We were married on a beautiful June day in 2012.
You can read our love story here. It's a good one (not that I'm biased).

We were both born & raised in the midwest, and we met at the University of Michigan (go blue!). After school, we moved across the country to New York City. I always wanted to live in NYC, and I was blessed to work there as a vocal artist + voice teacher. After over seven years "living the dream" we now happily reside back in Michigan with our two precious children.

This is a blog about our journey.

Only our generous and faithful Father knows what is in store for us.
I look forward to sharing my heart with you along the way. I'm so glad you're here!
P.S. Read how I chose my blog name in my first blog entry.

  8. Hello from Illinois Elise!
    Iam a U of I grad who spent many many years in musical theater. Also a loyal Catholic. I want to ask you if you compose music. I may have written the only contemporary musical with a Catholic theme, in many a year, and I am looking for someone to compose the music for already written lyrics( my co-writer is a published poet and Little Sister of Jesus, who follow St. Charles Borromeo, I think) Any interest? Thank you. Bless you Elise, I found you thru Blessed is She.


I would love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave a note.
