A blog documenting the beautiful, convicting, frustrating and enlightening ramblings of my everyday life as a wife, mother, designer and ministry leader.
♥ According to Rick Warren, author of “The Purpose Driven Life” states that “Offering yourself to God is what worship is all about” and that “true worship” is what brings God pleasure. This only happens when we surrender ourselves completely to God and offer ourselves to him. Worship is reserved for all of the ways we […]
Sharing is the best way to we communicate our love for Christ. Through our actions, words and lifestyle we share our faith. The definition of share means to “divide”, which is what we naturally do when we are acting as parts of the body. “Share” is dedicated to…well, sharing the beautiful and unfailing love of Christ.
Connecting is about building relationships. In our everyday environments there are places, events and moments we use to connect with others (believers and non-believers). Sincere connecting is a delicate choice that can be a source of encouragement or blessing to someone who may need it.

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become…” – C.S. Lewis
I am constantly fascinated in learning of how others have come to Faith. From the very dramatic, literally life saving last chance some experience to the quiet and humble ways others desire to draw closer to Christ and everything in between.
I invite you to share your story with the question being, "How has Jesus changed your life?"
Following Christ is not easy – at times it can seem overwhelming. Luke 9 outlines very clearly the cost of following Him. Because I fail regularly, I thank Jesus and ask for his grace regularly. While I am growing deeper in learning His word and in my faith, there are plenty of days where it is two steps forward, four steps back! This is the daily dance of dying to self. It is practice. Before Christ, I did not know true peace. Sure, I could calm myself against the stresses of my job and marriage, but this wasn’t peace – it was a temporary fix. I believe that true brokenness is Gods way of getting our attention. Well, he got mine! I finally surrendered two years ago and traded my will for his. In doing so, I received His promised gift of beautiful, indescribable and permanent peace. It is my prayer that everyone comes to know and dwell in His peace. see blog post: tired & broken
