Let’s see… condensed version, right?
I was born in the end of the 70’s, to what soon became a family of seven! I grew up, enjoying imaginative play with my siblings, reading as often as possible, drawing, and living a simple but happy life.
At the tender age of four, I became aware of the fact that I sinned and became convicted of my need for God’s forgiveness. I was overjoyed to learn that Jesus died so that I could be forgiven and not need to be entrapped in my sin. I remember the day that I got down on my knees and simply asked Jesus to make me His child and to forgive me for my sins. Immediately, indescribable peace and joy flooded my heart. It was like millions of tiny prisms of light were reflecting rainbows into my heart. I jumped and ran through the house, telling my family, “I’m saved! I’m saved!” My life was never the same after that.
Fast forward 30+ plus years, and I am now the mother of five children. (Gasp.) Yes, you read that correctly.
It was my five children that motivated me to start this blog. I wanted a way to “log” my faith, my thoughts, and my love for my children and God.
In addition to my occasional blogging, I am also busy living life in a bustling house of seven people. Life isn’t all chocolates and roses, but it’s a blessed life. It’s where we live the “skin” of love. It’s where the messiness of the mundane can be transformed into the glorious beauty of grace, lived out in our actions.
In the past five years, I have discovered so much more about myself, about who God created me to be, about grace and what it means to live it, and about the unconditional and perfect love of God.
Learning that I can trust God because He is a Good God means that I am learning to truly and finally live the abundant life that God has created for me.
There is no more glorious description than I am the beloved, accepted, redeemed daughter of Abba-Father!
Isaiah 50:4 — “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning. He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”
