I never believed I had a story to tell, or rather I had a story I didn't want to tell. A life that was not of any value. Stripped naked by lies, I found myself constantly striving to be: enough, worthy, lovable, seen. Every time I could not meet those impossible standards I gave up. I thought I can't because I'm not enough, and if I tried I thought if I do the next thing then maybe I will be enough. It was always lose, lose.
Have you ever believed these lies?
Slowly God has shown me that my identity was resting in childhood and years of piled high lies about who I thought I was, and how God saw me. Add to that childhood sexual abuse, and I truly believed I was used up trash unworthy to love.
The hardest thing you will ever do is see yourself for who you really are, and invite others in. And guess what? For me that included asking God into those clutter filled, messy rooms of my heart I locked him out of. What I have learned is that healing hurts, but it is also in the struggle that I have met a good good Father who loves me, and meets me every step of the way.
I want to walk with you as you untangle yourself from lies, and dwell in truth, and invite you in as I do the same. I long to encourage moms especially and remind them what we cannot control, and what we can control. Not because I do it all well, but because these have been especially hard for me, but also have taught me the most as I surrendered every hidden piece and in God's goodness he reveals one more rotten root.
As my friend your lies will not go any further with me, and as you enter into truth I want to look around and admire your beauty, the greatest creation God made: you and I.
You can walk in purpose, right where you are.
I love getting to know individuals, and seeing how God has crafted each one of them for a unique purpose. This fuels my love of teaching, so that you and I can rest in our identity in Christ and say yes to our purpose. I’ll encourage you to abide in Jesus and his Word so you may be filled to overflow, with love, beauty, grace, and truth to pass onto the next generations.
On a family note:
My husband and I have been married for 9 years. We have two children, and eagerly await for the blessing of more. My heart longs for more, but we have been unable to conceive for over 2 years now, a trial I never anticipated walking through. We are passionate about homeschooling, finances, marriage, traveling, giving, and any part of our lives we discover is not surrendered to God and his word. God renewed our marriage, on the brink of divorce, 8 years ago. This is just the first of many areas I have watched God renew what was broken. To him be all the glory!
