Have you ever wondered if the Bible really applies to your life today in your current context?
I’m convinced that the Word of God is for every Christian in every season of life. It’s taken more than a decade for me to understand just how desperate I am to know Christ and how much I need Him in every facet of my life. God has used some long, dark roads to teach me to turn to Him in every circumstance: whether it’s the dark nights of the soul that challenge every layer of my faith or the patches of joy that break through periods of waiting and longing with such brightness I can only attribute it to the faithful love of God. I want to encourage my readers to spend their days getting to know God in His own words…which are found in the Bible.
I am a pastor’s wife, mom of two boys, musician, and writer. I struggle to make long term goals because I know I’ll never keep them. I like for my house to be clean, but my closets are a disaster. I like to write. I like to read. I have a long-term relationship with infertility which resulted in a long-term relationship with adoption. I have some chronic illnesses and am regularly learning to trust the Lord with my life, one day at a time.
Also, I drink a lot of coffee.
I’ve found my writing voice in connecting the difficult circumstances in life to the faithfulness of God as revealed in His Word. So often we start with our hurts and try to work our way back to Scripture, but I believe we need to start with the Word and let God tell us who He is there. Only then can we view suffering correctly, only then can we see God’s faithfulness in sorrow, only then are we equipped to persevere and consider it all joy.
In every post I want to point my readers to the Lord whose Word always meets us where we are.
Here you can find my reflection on one year of writing publicly.
Thanks for reading. I hope you see the strong arm of the Lord in my weak words.
My first solo album, “Hold Me Fast,” released in April, 2017. As a singer/songwriter, my music comes from what I’ve learned about the Lord through trials and the sweet comfort of His Word. You can find my album wherever you buy music online.
