yayI started this blog back in 2005 at the same time as a bunch of my church life group friends. We used our blogs to share our personal journeys and what we felt God was telling us through scripture, and to also get to know each other better. But at that time in my life, this blog became something so much more.  I was going through a bitter divorce and custody battle, healing from an abusive marriage, and learning how to be single for the first time in over a decade. Along with that, I had never known what it was like to have a personal relationship with God. Over the years, I recorded my thoughts, fears, doubts, worries, and moments of God-given peace within the pages of this blog. I learned a ton about myself with this blog, and I love that this blog became a witness to the growth I experienced.

Today, I am on a different journey. I am married to a wonderful Christian man. I have escaped the clutches of poverty. I hold no shame over the questions I have for God. I belong to a wonderful church. And I am nearing the end of hands-on parenting as my children prepare for the day they leave the nest.

But one thing has not changed in the 12+ years I’ve chronicled here in this blog: I am on a never-ending journey in the pursuit of God.

I am not perfect. I do not claim to know everything about Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity. I am a Child in Faith. This is my story.
