Hi! I’m Kristen and I am a wife, mother of 2 boys, a music therapist, an educator, and an artist. I have a Masters in Arts Education and a Masters in Music Therapy.
I have always been drawn to the arts and am a creative soul. I love how the arts enhance education and learning and want to share my passion with others.
Music and art are powerful tools to enhance education and therapy. As a board-certified music therapist I can offer insight into how music can be used to accomplish non-music goals such as cognitive skills, physical skills, and emotional skills. As an artist I can share how I use art in my own life and in the life of my kids.
As a homeschool mom I am always researching and creating resources to help my kids learn. Learning through play and the arts is so meaningful! This site gives me the opportunity to share what I have learned along the way and what I have created as well.
I am passionate about wellness and mental health. I have always used art and nature in my self-care and self-expression which has helped with my mental health. In 2023 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and found myself on a whole new health journey. This healing journey incorporated physical changes, specifically change in nutrition and movement, but also mental health changes as I learned more about the importance of dealing with stress and negative emotions for optimal health.
Join me as I share all that I have learned in these areas of Creativity and Wellness! I am a life-long learner and continue to study and learn more and more each day. I love to share what I discover and would love to connect with you about any or all of it.
My hope is that you will be encouraged and take something away from what I offer here and join me as we learn together and find ways to incorporate these important aspects into our daily rhythms of life.
Living Water Restorations

I am thrilled that God has using this to reach so many people in my community. I am helping people to restore their treasured bibles which are well-loved and worn to a stronger, more beautiful book. God’s word is the foundation of our lives and I feel honored to be able to help people one bible at a time.
