God at Work in Small and Big Ways

God at Work in Small and Big Ways

The story we never expected to live may be the story that offers hope to someone else.

This week, I have the honor of sharing part of my story through Faith Storytellers—an online publication that seeks to share the story God is writing in the world through true, first-person stories of faith.

In the post Results that Changed My Life, I share the ways God was at work in small and big ways as I navigated treatment of a rare disease.

I hope my story encourages you to keep going and to keep seeking His presence as you wade through the unexpected.

Remaining Faithful Through Our What Ifs

Remaining Faithful Through Our What Ifs

What if one of my loved ones contracts COVID?
What if I lose my job?
What if life never returns to normal?

Life seems to present us with an extra dose of “what-ifs” whenever it takes a turn for the unexpected.

Have you felt the weight of “what-ifs” lately? With God, we can replace the what-ifs with even ifs.

Have the burdens of late been difficult to shake? Is the heaviness of the world weighing on you?

Let’s Hunt for Beauty, Together

Let’s Hunt for Beauty, Together

Lately, do your days need more peace? More pause? More beauty and reminders of God’s presence? Mine do. Will you join me in paying attention to how God is meeting you right where you are?

I’ll be seeking where beauty is showing up + the places I feel God’s presence and sharing it over on Instagram. I’d love for you to join me in hunting for the beauty we often miss when we aren’t paying attention.

Let’s hunt for beauty, together.

Experiencing Wholeness by Trusting God in Our Pain

Experiencing Wholeness by Trusting God in Our Pain

Am I being punished? Is God trying to teach me a lesson? Is my faith being tested?

For a long time, I believed my pain was meant to serve a higher purpose; that God had a reason for it.

Has your mind wandered to this place? As if by instinct, when unexpected circumstances cause pain and suffering to arise, our human nature leads us to grasp for purpose.

Instead of purpose, I’ve learned to seek wholeness.
