First, thank you for stopping by to view my blog and to learn more about me. I pray that God will place it on your heart to be a consistent reader and that He will use this blog to bless you in unimaginable ways! He has an amazing plan for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11). We are partners with God. Our job is to receive His promises by faith and cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He guides us into a deeper relationship with Him.
About me … truth be told, I am nothing special in the human realm. In fact, I am just plain ordinary and absolutely nothing without God. I have many flaws and make just as many mistakes in my daily life as any other person. There are days I would even consider myself a walking disaster. God has gifted me with the ability to express myself through written word. Until very recently, I was not courageous enough to embrace God’s gift and share it with the world. Putting oneself out there for others to judge is scary business! I have made a promise to God, however, and I intend to keep it. If I have even one ounce of talent, I want to use it to honor Him despite the fear, the challenges, or the possible rejection.
I have no formal seminary training. Rather, I am attending the “school of the Holy Spirit.” I have been a Christian most of my life. Like many others, I have experienced in my lifetime periods where I am on fire for Jesus and periods where others might think I had forgotten my Christianity. Happily, I am now a fervent student of His Word. God has given me an abiding passion for inspiring deeper living in myself and others.
Following law school, and for more than a decade, I served the public as a criminal prosecutor in Florida. Quite unexpectedly, my husband was offered a wonderful job in Georgia. After prayerful consideration, he accepted the position. Leaving my family, friends, and profession behind, we took a step of faith and moved. You see, I now believe God was opening new doors for me. A year and a half prior to our moving to Georgia, my whole world was shattered and I was completely broken. Cancer had stolen my precious mom. Things that were once so important, like my career and standing in the community, no longer mattered. I wanted desperately to do work for God’s Kingdom. I did not want to get to Heaven empty handed. So, here I am … stepping out in faith and offering my whole heart for God’s use.
I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to acknowledge the most important people in my life. God has certainly blessed me with wonderful family and friends! I am honored to be the wife of a wonderful, supportive husband. Without his consistent love, encouragement, and support, I would not have the courage to stand “naked” before you. I am the proud and humbled daughter of amazing, Christian parents. They were both excellent examples in unshakable love, faith, and commitment. It is because of them that I work hard in my pursuits. I am the little sister of an incredibly smart, charming, and supportive brother. I can always count on him to ground and uplift me. Finally, I am blessed to call so many wonderful people my friend. They all continue to inspire and encourage me.
