Who I am? “I’m just a girl..”as quoted by Julia Roberts in the movie”Notting Hill”. I’m just a girl who has struggled and fought through hardships. A girl who has experienced defeat and victory, who has suffered in hopelessness, and also rejoiced and flourished. I have endured a lot but I have gained so much more in faith. I am just a girl speaking out the words the Lord has placed upon my heart and soul. I’m just a girl who passionately loves the Lord and He loves me unconditionally, because of my many flaws and imperfections, at my best and worst. After finding no other way to convey the deep sorrow I felt within for so many years, I began to journal about the torture of my soul and how I was transformed by the grace of God. He carried me through the darkest times of my life and I am forever grateful.
I am a happily married Christian woman with 3 grown, beautiful children. I have lived a not so ordinary life due to circumstances that were beyond my control, through trauma, depression, and a shattered, broken soul. I feel that I am meant to share my journey, the transformation of coming from utter darkness and hopelessness, into a life of freedom and victory in Jesus’ Name. I am passionate about the Lord, my faith, my wonderful husband, children, family, and friends. I am passionate about helping others and reaching out to those in need. I love photography (it brings me joy when I have a camera in my hands!), writing, reading, music, chocolate (I don’t think I am alone here), movies, nature, and wildlife. I feel blessed to live in an area where I am surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife here in Florida!
I have been working on finalizing my first manuscript and my heart’s desire is to be published within the next few months. I have found the process to be quite daunting, but I still remain invested in it. My prayer is that this book touches someone’s soul and speaks to those wounded, complicated places that are hard to define or put into words. My hope is that the words within the book allow others to see His grace at work in their own journey . I pray it gives hope to those who are feeling hopeless or lost.
This blog came from a desire of wanting to have a refuge from all the pain out there. It originated as a place to come and feel at peace, to turn down all the white noise, to reflect, and hopefully be inspired. When it began five years ago I shared other Christian Authors’ writings that I felt had a powerful message. I now have stepped out and begun posting my own writings. That caused some heart fluttering! As the saying goes, “Do it afraid!” I also wanted this blog to be where you could share your prayer requests, listen to Christian music, read scripture, and just rest in His Presence. I pray it can be an escape from the duties of daily living! I hope you find it to be a peaceful place to unwind and refresh your spirit! My desire is for this to be a place of refuge, a quiet corner to rest your weary soul. I pray you find comfort here and you feel the Lord’s presence as you are refreshed and nurtured by His words of truth.
When we are transparent and authentic, when we trust the Lord beyond anything else, when we immerse ourselves fully in Him and His word, that is a true place of peace and joy, no matter what storms are raging around us.
Thank You, Jesus, for bringing broken vessels together in faith to fill the cracks, creating a new vessel to receive Your eternal love.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by!
Blessings to you!
