Thank you for taking time to visit my blog. I hope what you find here will be an encouragement to you.
This blog is a way to process what God is doing along my faith journey and how I am being transformed by His life in me. You will find personal notes about my family, insights from scripture, thoughts about church, leadership, relationships, and walking daily with Jesus. Let me invite you to contribute your thoughts and discoveries because this is not a solo journey.
