1 Samuel 12:24
“Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.” (ESV)

God grabbed hold of my heart when I was around 8 or 9 years old. There was so much that I didn’t know and understand, but I knew that I needed Jesus.

Throughout my childhood and well into my adult years, I struggled to understand my place and often fell prey to my insecurities. As I kept reading and seeking the Lord, time and time again, He showed me His unending love and grace, and that He has made me for a purpose. I needed only to be faithful to His call. I love the story of Samuel, and I strive to live in such a way that I am ready to go when I hear God call.

After high school, God opened the door for me to attend Heritage College where I continued to grow deeper in His Word. I also met my husband, Jeff, at Heritage. I am so thankful to the Lord for bringing us together in His perfect way and then blessing us with four children: Caleb, Moriah, Jadyn, and Kaelyn, who are now teenagers.

Through the years as God brings trials and blessings to our family, I am reminded to keep pressing in and seeking the Lord with all my heart, mind, and soul. I have always loved serving God’s people in the church, and I love being at church, learning, growing, and being sanctified in my walk with the Lord. 

I can do nothing apart from God. I must sit daily at the feet of Jesus, soaking in His word and allowing it to change me. In my flesh, I am prone to make excuses and resist, but as I grow, God shows me that my service is for Him. I serve the Almighty God, who equips me and enables me to complete the tasks He has prepared for me. I desire to be ready for whatever He asks of me and to serve Him faithfully all my days.

 

MY HOPE FOR HARVEST


That we would be people who would love the truth of the Word, worship God faithfully, and walk in a manner worthy of His calling.
