I strive to shine God's light wherever I go. Right now my light is shining in my home and somehow my mission field found it's way to this online space. In 2011, He called me to write here at LOE. It's been something that I've had to grow into. It still wears a little big, and I still feel that I don't really have anything to "say", but I'm adjusting. Along with writing, came a lesson in thanksgiving. I learned in 2012 how to give thanks with my words and more importantly with my life. I'm now living a life of gratitude. 2013 led me to the hearts of women. I felt God urging me to encourage the hearts of His daughters. My sisters in Christ.
Fast forward to 2015. In a whirlwind of a day on April 8th, our family went from warp speed, over booked, average American family to a family living with cancer. The months that have followed have been full of every emotion imaginable, but mostly they been full of prayer, faith, humility, and trust in the only One that can turn this diagnosis around.
I covet your prayers as I live out His plans for my life, and as we trust in His will for our family. In turn, please know, that I pray earnestly for you all and take each concern that you share with me, to the foot of the cross.
Thank you for sharing in this journey.
