Walk fully in the grace of your calling.
Be who you were created to be.
Know the One you were created to know.
I offer teaching words
written, spoken and composed from the Very Real in my own life
read the blog
to illuminate Scripture, invite deep healing,
and teach the kind of Truth that sets hearts free.
I urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called. (Ephesians 4:1)
What is your calling?
We each have callings on our lives:
The universal callings of being human, the grace-filled callings of being Christian, and the spiritual and vocational callings unique to individual persons created in the image of God. Grace has been given to each one of us, Ephesians says (4:7), according to the measure of - or in proportion to - the gifts Christ has given each person.
What are your gifts? What are your callings?
Your daily vocation, your spiritual gifts, your talents and dreams; the callings and desires that niggle at the back of your heart; the difficult circumstances in which you might be placed; your calling as daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend, and every other relational role you fulfill (even the ones that do not feel as though they come naturally) - grace has been given to us in measure to each of these. "His divine power has given us all things that are needful for life and godliness." (1 Peter 1:3)
God has given you all that you need to walk fully in the grace of your calling.
No matter the circumstances. No matter the unforeseen battles. No matter the heartbreak. God meets us, calls us by name, draws forth who we really are in him - draws out who Christ really is in us. Each moment there's grace. Each moment is holy, designed for us to find Him, to commune with His Spirit, to learn to walk with Him in the full stature of all we have been asked to do and have been given to be - to walk gloriously and radiantly, practically and faithfully, humbly, forgiven and free. We are not destined to hide behind worry, fear or shame.
We can live fully, knowing the One we were created to know and finding ourselves deeply known - and loved - by Him.
I'm so glad you're here!
A bit of my own calling:
I am a writer and teacher, a wife, and a mother of six kids. I write and teach because I have experienced the Presence of the Holy Spirit in the deepest and most shame-filled places of my heart, and I want to share with you the hope I'm continually given.
These words are written to encourage both you and myself to “go there” with Jesus – to face with Him the hidden corners of our stories, to discover his profound compassion, to receive the kind of heart-healing that propels us to walk in the freedom for which we were made and into which we have been redeemed.
