Listen to your life.
I am a perfectly imperfect follower of Christ, who spent much of her teens and early twenties testing God’s faithfulness in many foolish ways. At 19, I became a single Mom when my daughter Aurora was born. Even then, I knew she was God’s blessing.
But the shame of being an unwed mom, along with childhood wounds, walled up my heart and stopped me from experiencing God’s blessings. My mistakes further fed enemy lies of my unloveliness and unworthiness. My soul knew God, but my heart had come to believe that taking responsibility for my life meant I was on my own.
True to His character, God pursued with His unfailing love, kindness, gentleness, and goodness.
Then, in my late 20's, God surprised me by bringing Jeff, my soul mate, and my future sons, Michael and Jason, into my life. Sometimes thriving, at times only surviving, God’s grace carried us through raising three adult children. He also added to our family one precocious granddaughter, whom I adore.
God delights in making all things new. He exchanged my unfaithfulness with the gift of ministry. Most of the last 15 years my passion has been to teach and serve in youth and women’s ministry.
So, who am I, and where am I going?
I am a woman with a pastor’s heart. I write, teach, speak, and listen to the hearts of people. I am His beloved, and He is mine.
At the end of 2016, God invited me to risk leaving what I have loved - a full-time (paying) job in ministry - to explore this next season of my life.
This is part of that journey. Traveling the ancient paths of our desert mothers and fathers and soaking in the sacred scriptures of the Christian faith is reviving my soul. These are the ways God meets with me, and I experience more deeply the reality of the risen-Jesus in my life. I’m beginning to dance in the unforced rhythms of grace and my heart is beating once again. Come with me, if you like. You are welcome in this place.
