little house • little girls • little small town story




I’m Denise. I live in a little house snuggled in a small mountain town about 20 mins outside Asheville, NC with my hard working hubby and two lively little girls.



I’m a simple southern girl. I gave my life to Christ 8 years ago and while I wish I could say I never looked back, that’s not true. I’ve walked through dessert places, there’s been times where I have felt I was only holding on by a thread. I started this project with the desire to become completely consumed by His word, because that’s how we come to know Jesus more and more. My prayers and hopes for this little space of the internet is to help you fall more in love with Jesus and His written word. Social media is playing such a large roll in our lives and it’s easy to get swept up in the distraction and noise of it all, like the haunting desire to own more material things, FOMO, and the comparison trap (ughhh, don’t even get me started) but at The Humbling Bee, come as you are, please. The truth is no one is perfect, and thank goodness because there would be no need for His wonderful grace.



My heart’s desire is simple; to share my testimony in all humility. To display true happiness and joy doesn’t come from people, things, or anything this world has to offer and if I boast in anything, let it be Jesus. I write about scripture, adventures, and a little bit of life all while imperfectly growing in grace alongside you. Dedicating this all to the glory of God, because I am nothing without Him. I believe God lets us walk through dry and dessert places, so that one day we can stretch forth our hands and help others along the way (Phil 2:1). But He also brings us the greatest peace and contentment, that is so unworldly it could only come from Heaven. I might not have much, but what I do have I’ll share with you here. I pray that I  can encourage, make you laugh, care for, and be genuinely real with y’all; so let’s endeavor with laughter, tears, and a whole lot of support in this adventure called life.
