Man, I am so grateful you are here. I mean, really. I am just a creative soul with a passion for making life a beautiful place to be. My main gig used to be singing and writing songs. I loved it, for a season. Then, a whole lot of life happened that lead to a life requiring a whole lot less travel. That's when even more passions took center stage in my life.
From there, I nestled into creating beauty in my home, creating beauty through writing stories of life & truth, and most importantly relishing in the beauty of motherhood. I used to search and pray for God to show me his plan for ME. I tried seven different majors in college looking for my "saving grace degree" - four years later and with multiple degrees in art, design, & music - I was still searching. I went back to my favorite verse, Jeremiah 29:11,
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
But this time, I read on...
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
What an eye-opener. That was my saving grace right there - not some degree. When I sought the Lord with my whole heart he showed me how I could be used right where I was. Not waiting for some grandiose plan to unfold before I could begin my life. THIS was the plan. THIS IS the plan. I had the wrong part emphasized. It was not about "his plan for ME" - it's about "HIS plan for me." A bigger picture moment.
So this is where I am, today, seeking the Lord with all my heart daily - finding beauty in all the things. I don't have some fancy bio to share with you here - although I have many qualifications, experiences, and degrees I could list - I think my "unqualifications" are what bring us together here even more. So thanks for stopping by. Stay awhile. I hope you find some beauty here, but most importantly I hope you find beauty in where God has you placed right here & now.
Good talk, friends.
