I believe in the power of our stories. While God’s word is the complete and absolute authority on what is right and true, He has authored a unique story over each one of our lives. When we are willing to share those truths, the real, gritty, raw and vulnerable parts of us, we unleash a unique power as the body of Christ.
We invite others into our lives and give them permission to speak their own truth.
With my whole heart, I believe in the balm of grace, the beauty of authentic fellowship, and the joy that comes from a community of believers coming together to cheer one another on. We not only belong to Him, but we belong to one another, and together we travel this faith journey.
Being a woman of God, a woman who seeks genuine truth in faith, isn’t about a search for approval or a struggle in comparison, it’s about honesty – acknowledging that faith is not achieved through perfection, but is a step by step, often uphill, journey toward our prize – more of Christ. That is the woman I want to be.
The Real Conversations Series is about all of this and more. It’s about creating a safe place to share my heart and to welcome you to share yours. A few of my dear friends from the blogging community have joined me on this journey and have willingly poured out their hearts to share a slice of their story with you – with us.
