There is a massive part of me that wants to remain hidden from the world around me. So much of my journey has been a quest to stay invisible. I love simple, quiet living, and that will never change. Yet, there are many life experiences that I no longer want to remain silent about. God has carried me along a rugged path. It has been an incredible and strenuous journey that has allowed relating to a variety of women from every walk of life.
It’s been a path with beautiful struggles that encompass: singleness; loneliness; body image issues; childhood and adult obesity; food addiction; fad dieting; infertility; multiple miscarriages; failed adoption; backing out of adoption; fear of success; self-doubt; insecurity; and these are just a few!
God is teaching me that I’ve walked this journey for my good and His glory. I want to use some of the lessons that He has taught me to teach others. I want to help strengthen unsure women to live confidently – as they fall in love with Jesus. This can only be accomplished by breaking open the Word of God and letting it pour over every single aspect of our lives. You see…
This blog is a simple way to document life and the things enjoyed along the way: life-lessons from God’s Word, creating a beautiful living environment, learning to prepare healthy meals for my family, intentional purchasing – so we can live unencumbered by debt, future homeschooling, and crazy family adventures are just a few of the topics I will bring to you. I hope you have fun as you follow along.
“God’s call has everything to do with living one’s life in obedience – through action. It does not merely require a mind, but a body too. It is God’s call to be fully human – to live as human beings obedient to the one who made us – which is the fulfillment of our destiny.”Dietrich Bonhoeffer
