Acts 18:9

And the Lord said to Paul in the night by vision, Do not be afraid any longer, but go on speaking and do not be silent. 

About Me

The first thing I would like you to know about me is that I am a lover of Jesus Christ and I struggle every day to be what he wants me to be. The second thing to know is that I am painfully honest and I am not afraid to speak my mind; which is really the most ironic thing about the way this blog has come to be. I will share my ironic and colorful journey with you in bits and pieces, because small bites are always better. — There is less to choke on and also more room for your foot, or in my case, feet. 

God has a way of pushing and prodding and nagging and urging until he gets what he wants. Much like a toddler who insists on having sweets when the vegetables are still on the plate. — After so long you just can’t fight it anymore and you give the child the donut. Don’t misunderstand. I am not saying that my great and loving God is a spoiled toddler, but that his relentless pursuit of all of us is intense and unyielding. 

I gave in to the Love of Jesus in 1999 and allowed him to be the owner of my heart and the boss of my life. Since that time, my faith has grown stronger and my vision of my purpose in his plan has become more focused. God’s calling on my life to write this blog and share my story is the donut he wants from me and I am giving it complete with all the sprinkles.




Acts 2:28

You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.

You have probably already figured out that the book of Acts is a big part of my blog. For those of you who are reading this blog and don’t know anything about the Christian Bible, Acts is a book in the New Testament. It tells the story of the beginnings of the Christian church. In history it takes place after the death and resurrection of Jesus and is believed to be written by a man named Luke. 

Some view the Bible as a book of fables, or tales of fiction. Some view it as the literal word of God, some see it as historical literature.  When I accepted Jesus, I also accepted the Bible as God’s instruction book for life. To me, the Bible is my roadmap, and when I don’t know which way to turn I am always able to find my direction in it’s pages. I believe that God speaks to us through the words written by his prophets and the apostles of Jesus.

2020 had just ended. The start of of 2021 didn’t promise anything better on the horizon. I was over all of it. Just done. I began to reflect on what I could do to make things better. I realized I had to do something. I could either take it or leave it or change it— My attitude — my life — the community around me. I prayed. A LOT.  I had been praying constantly for the mess our country was in, but now I had an additional focus. I was searching and God new it. I opened my Bible to a random place one morning and there before me was Acts 18 chapter 9.  

So, that is how this blog came to be. — A discouraged and fearful prayer warrior with a searching heart for Jesus finds direction in prayer and scripture. That’s pretty much the story of my life since I became a follower of Christ. 

If you can accept that I believe that God works in my life and yours through the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit then I invite you to come on this blog journey with me. If you can’t accept it, then I invite you to come along any way, and let me prove it to you. 

The most important thing is- There is Love and compassion waiting for you in the arms of Jesus Christ. It’s free and you can’t earn it or buy it or make it go away. And let me tell you…….. If he can love a sinner like me……then he can love you too.  And he does.
