About the Blog:

My life verse is “By the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain” – 1 Corinthians 15:10. It is by God’s grace that I am able to do everything I do. It is by His grace that I am able to write this blog.  My prayer is that, within these words, you would find His grace and love and the courage to be exactly who He created you to be.  My goal with this blog is to encourage people to be everything God created them to be, nothing more and nothing less. We have pressure from everywhere to be what someone else wants us to be and sometimes it’s hard to quiet those outside influences and figure out who God created us to be. By sharing the lessons/devotionals that God puts on my heart and other thoughts, books, etc. that I have found beneficial to my walk with God, I hope to encourage you to find your identity in Christ and to walk fully in the knowledge of who He has created you to be . Thank you for taking the time to read. Please feel free to share any of the content that you find here.

A Little More About Me:

My husband is an amazing photographer who took this picture himself.

I’m a Christian with a heart for sharing God’s love. I mainly work with young people (youth and college age) since my husband is a Student Pastor, and that pretty much consumes our lives. I am married to my best friend. I was a middle school language arts and remedial reading teacher for ten years, but am currently studying to become a sign language interpreter. In addition to helping my husband with the Student Ministry at our church and blogging, I enjoy teaching a sign language class and running a tutoring program at our church. I am a huge Sci-fi nerd, board game junkie, and grandma hobby-ist (crochet, knitting, cross-stitching) who frequents coffee shops way more than is healthy and believes life is better when socks are colorful and fun. I love reading, but mainly do so through Audible, because I also love to binge Netflix. Parks and Rec, The Office, Gilmore Girls, Doctor Who, How I Met Your Mother, Grey’s Anatomy, Firefly, and The Big Bang Theory are just a few of my favorite shows. I could seriously talk about any of them all day. I’m a huge Potterhead and am not ashamed to admit that I also love Twilight (books and movies). My husband and I live in Albuquerque with our two Beagles, Bella and Theo, who are not at all spoiled.
