Hayley Novak is married to Daniel, mama, teacher and taxi service to JD, Cambria and Eli, living in a brick house with a big old front porch ten blocks from the Mississippi River. For fun (and sheer terror!) she and Daniel buy, renovate and lease houses; Saturdays are her favorite day because she lets her children watch cartoons until noon. She loves Jesus and would love to stop the glorification of busy. She writes (occasionally) on grief, grace, loss and honest snapshots of real life. She continually leaves her house wearing only one earring. Nothing about her is perfect but she is loved by a perfect God and wants to communicate that love to you.
