My Story – Through Him

(This is the final post of three in a series titled "My Story". If you're curious, here's one and two.) So, my last post ended with me figuring out that after fifteen years of living my life in Jesus, I only really loved Him like I'd loved my family and friends... a whole heck of… Continue reading My Story – Through Him

For Such a Time as This

What to say? What to do? For someone who likes to write her feelings, nothing sounds eloquent enough and words seem pretty much worthless right about now.

So, for years I was obsessed with thinking a life of… Continue reading Floats and Ducks and The Deep

Turn and Be Healed, In Jesus (Part One)

I'd like to begin this whole thing with a bit of full disclosure... This post has been a rough one. It's also way long (likely too long according to some standard of which I clearly don’t follow), so it's split into three. But, I've honestly no idea the rules for sharing multiple parts... one per… Continue reading Turn and Be Healed, In Jesus (Part One)
