My name is Natasha Lynn Daniels, I live in Ozark Alabama. I am a Jesus girl who lives by faith, holds on to hope and tries to see His “JOY” in every situation. I will be honest, some situations are harder than others. I am a wife to one loving, handsome man of 21 years. He is my best friend, biggest encourager, and truly loves me as Christ loves the church.
I am a “One-in-four” woman who struggles with infertility and the longing to be a mommy. I have always wanted six kids and when I was told I couldn’t have them I was devastated. With “JOY”, I can say that I am a mom of five beautiful children! I keep telling my husband there is one more out there!! My husband and I adopted all five of our kids.
Micah is 17 and we adopted him when he was six-weeks old. He was a private adoption and has brought us so much “JOY”! He still brings much joy to our family and also some stress.. He is a 17 year old who thinks he knows it all and well you have to find “JOY” in every situation, even in the teenage years, right?! He really is a great kid and I feel so blessed that God called me to be his mom.
On May 13, 2017, after a long adoption journey we became a family of seven. We adopted siblings of four from an orphanage in Ukraine. Two boys and two girls. Romah 9, Zhenya 10, Bogdana Grace 7 and Vicka Adele 6. These kids own my heart!! They have been through more in their young lives than I will ever experience in my lifetime. I am in awe of how they have bonded with us, love us and are truly grateful. I feel so honored and blessed that the Lord called us to be His hands and feet on this mission and that we were obedient to His calling to adopt them. I still can’t believe I am their MOMMY!!
The Lord has called me to share my story of brokenness, loss, faith, hope, love and redemption through infertility and shattered dreams of becoming a mom but how I leaned into my faith and found “JOY” in the hard process of adoption, how I have held on to hope, how I am now living in His hope and witnessing His redemption daily! I have a full- time job homeschooling my children and I love every minute of it, even when we all fail math!!
I enjoy painting and bible journaling art, I also enjoy teaching art to women, children and teens. I enjoy journaling my life of hurts, hopes, joys and prayers and going back to see how the Lord has answered so many of my prayers.
I enjoy working out and sleeping!! I am a very picky eater but I love a good salad!! I am a hopeless romantic and love me some Hallmark movies. I don’t drink coffee I prefer a cup of hot tea. I am very outgoing, a talker, lover of people and cats. God has given me a few new titles I am learning to embrace such as, an Author and a Speaker, who is terrified, but I said, “YES” to His calling.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
3 things will last forever faith, hope, love & the greatest of these is love.
