About Me!

Hello, friend! My name is Nina and I am a wife and mother to two boys.

I am a Registered Dental Hygienist but for as long as I can remember I’ve turned to writing as an outlet of my personal love and expression. To learn more about my professional career, you can click here.

A couple of years I set out on a venture to create and maintain a blog…and ThanksBe2God was born!

Why “Thanks Be 2 God”?

In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians he writes, “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of knowledge of Him in every place.” {2 Corinthians 2:14]

This verse is one of my favorites for many reasons. First and foremost thanks, glory, and credit are given to God. Second, we are reminded that our triumphs are due to Christ’s work in our lives and hearts. Lastly, I love the idea of the knowledge of God spreading like an aroma throughout any setting – your life, career, home, children, marriage, etc. This verse reminds me of the sweet aroma of the knowledge and love of Christ.

My writing is inspired by three things: my Faith journey, my life in the trenches of motherhood, and my constant pursuit of the Holy Spirit. In the words of Saint Teresa of Calcutta I simply aim to be, “a little pencil in God’s hands.”

Although we live and practice Catholicism, I think it’s important for you to know that I feel that everyone deserves a seat at our table. So if you aren’t Catholic, or even if you aren’t quite sure about Christianity – that’s okay! Please know that my door is open and you are still welcome here. 

If you know me personally, you know that I LOVE to laugh! I hope that some of my fun anecdotes can make you laugh, and I hope that my writing can be insightful for you. Life with two toddlers is hectic, messy, and just plain fun! I hope you can gather insight, laughter, and true reflection when you visit my blog. 


Again, thanks for stopping by! Feel free to reach out to me – I love making new friends!
