I am a wife to Billy, a mom to two little boys and one baby girl. We live in Charleston, SC, where Billy leads worship at our church and I run a once-monthly ministry for mamas.
I'm an ENFJ, an enneagram type 3, and I adore personality assessments (and helping friends and family find their own types). I think everyone has potential to dig deeper, understand more about their unique shape, and live more fully.
I'm easily impassioned about a good handful of things -- ethical shopping, social justice, doing away with comparison, personality tests (as I just said) -- but easily, easily, I am most excited about the Word of God. It's my lifeline and my bread. As a lover of words, I am enthralled with the power and the beauty that I find when I dive into a verse or a passage. As Charles Spurgeon once preached, "Dissect, investigate, and weigh the Master's teaching word by word, and each syllable will repay you." I have found that to be true over and over in each season of my life, and I can't help but share what I'm learning. I believe the Word of God is for you, lovingly, passionately, intimately for you, drawing you in.
In starting this space, I wanted to immediately agree with what the Lord says about you and about me -- that we are seen, we are loved, we are desired, we are not overlooked, we are planned for, we are precious, we are honored, we were sacrificed for, we were bought with a price, and we are created for HIm. There are so many more things to agree with, but those are a few places to start.
I also believe that the literal Words of God are full of life-changing, thought-shifting power, and in this space, we will together grab hold of that for our lives. Tucking away, pondering, delighting over the precious Word and choosing to say YES and AMEN -- that's what I want to do here, with my life, with this space, with you, sweet friend.
Finally, I know that God created you so uniquely and beautifully, and I want to encourage you and equip you to figure out the way He made you and what precious things He made you for. I want to help you say YES and AMEN to your God-given shape and place in this world.
