Do you struggle with control?  Letting go?  Worry?  Me too!  Surrender isn’t easy, is it?   Trusting the Lord with all your heart and leaning not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5) can be tough.  I have to confess, I am a woman of little faith.  My faith can waiver moment by moment.  But there is good news!  God loves me anyway… and He loves you too.  God tells us He is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love (Exodus 34:6).  He loves us in the midst of our messes and our doubt.  Do I hear a sigh of relief?

This blog is a snapshot of my reality of being a Jesus follower, wife, and mom.  It’s about noticing God’s fingerprints in the midst of the daily grind.  Sometimes His fingerprints are followed by tears of joy as I sit in awe of His incredible love for me.  Other times, those fingerprints lead to tears of conviction.  But no matter what I do, and no matter what you do, God’s love is constant, unconditional, and always available.  I’d love for you to join me on this journey called life.
