Thanks for visiting my little corner of the world! Here you’ll find truth, encouragement, and a perspective that can help you fix your eyes on Jesus. Life is messy and it’s easy to get discouraged. We all need people in our lives that can remind us of the truth from God’s Word and help us reorient ourselves accordingly. Isn’t it easy to forget?
My hope is that as you read my posts you will be stirred to love Jesus more and you’ll grow in your relationship with Him. If you’re a non-Christian, I hope that my posts challenge your framework for understanding the world.
Please feel free to comment on any of the posts, even if you disagree! It’s always great to get feedback whether it’s positive or negative. I also enjoy talking with and getting to know people so comments are always great!
