Life’s Journey

In life’s journey, it’s easy to feel alone, to think no one understands and that no one cares.

Responsibilities–even ones we love–can weigh us down. Work, family, and serving others leaves us frazzled and worn out.

I feel that way sometimes (and maybe more than that!), but I’ve learned an important lesson: I serve a good, good God who loves me–and YOU–very much! My hope is that this blog will encourage us to take a few moments to step out of life’s busyness and spend time with Jesus. He loves us–every one of us–so much! I pray this blog will remind us of that and introduce Him to women who may not know that He offers us amazing things like peace, joy, rest, love, and even His presence.

 

So, who am I? I’m a Christ-follower who is a wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I’m blessed to be doing life with my husband, Larry, who supports me in my dreams. We serve together at our church, where I sing in the choir and teach Sunday School. At church and at home, Larry works circles around me and somehow seems to do it with a purer heart.

I head Public Relations at a Christian university I love and am working on two writing projects–a novel and a Bible study on the book of Jonah. As I write, I try to be real. I talk about how Mother’s Day makes me cry because we don’t have kids and writing makes me scared. I hope that if I’m honest about my struggles, maybe all of us will feel a little more connected.

What else? I love to learn. I earned my undergrad degree in Communication Studies and English from Gardner-Webb College and a Master of Arts in Professional Writing from Kennesaw State University. I also have a Doctor of Education in Higher Education Leadership from Union University. I probably read too much.

Mostly, I’m a woman who wants to use her talents to glorify God. I hope you enjoy the blog and will join in the conversation. I’d love to hear from you through the comments section, or, in case you’re a bit shy like me, you can head over to the Contact page and send a message. That’d actually be great because usually I just get spam from it.
