This blog was begun as a way to encourage myself to be in God's Word daily, by reading and then writing about it. Both disciplines come and go, although blogging isn't as necessary as it was to encourage me to read my Bible daily. Now I'm blogging about everyday life, and about what God is doing in my life.
My husband and I were married on May 29, 2011. He is my greatest blessing, my biggest encourager, and my best friend. I couldn't be happier!
We are both in college and hope to graduate in 2013. My dream is to be a professional writer, and blogging is one step in the road to reaching that goal. However, more than anything I want to be a godly wife, mother and homemaker. Wife, check; homemaker, check; mother--someday! :) I'm learning and growing and living in grace every day.
Most importantly, I am a saved and forgiven child of God. Jesus Christ is my best friend (even more than my husband :) ), the reason I'm alive and the purpose for my life. I desire to serve, please, delight and obey him in everything I do. I fail at that all the time, but that is why God sent his Son, Jesus. Jesus was born as a human baby, still also fully God, to live a perfect life, die on the cross for all the sins of the world, and rise again, victorious over sin, death, and Satan. Despite the fact that I deserve eternal separation from God, he has instead forgiven me, made me his own, and given me the gift of faith and the promise of eternal life with him.
This is who I am. If you want to know any more, please comment or contact me! :)
