“Of one thing I am perfectly sure: God’s story never ends with ashes”

Elisabeth Elliot

I realized years ago that with a fabulous group of friends, a good pair of Spanx, a great cup of coffee, strong hair spray, and being deeply rooted in God’s Word the storms of life could be passed through. If only life could be made of such simple ingredients… While fabulous friends are a treasure of life, being rooted in God’s Word is THE necessity to weathering the storms. All the other things in life usually just help us feel good about ourselves.

I would have never dreamed that my life would be filled with such incredible and deep sadness that comes with loss. I never would have imagined that I would  experience the personal affects of emotional and mental abuse, the silent killer of the soul. I am in awe of how God is the keeper of my soul and He has kept what I committed to Him. He would not allow my soul to be destroyed!

I can sing with confidence, “it is well with my soul” and I rest having experienced His great faithfulness. I hope that as you hear my weekly podcast, inCREDIBLE You, and read my blog that you will be encouraged and know that you are not alone. It is my desire through speaking and writing that you will know the Lord more intimately and experience His faithfulness.

I don’t have it together, and my ducks are never in a row. In fact, I count it a good day if my ducks show up at the pond! I struggle with insecurity, getting caught up in the Would-a, could-a, should-a’s, and overwhelmed with life’s craziness. Just like you, I too, desire to grow the deepest roots in Christ and live for him in the midst of all the craziness, trusting Him with the would-a, could-a, should-a’s. I choose to entrust myself to Jesus, the secure anchor of my soul. I have found when I fix my eyes on the One holding me, the insecurity lessens and I walk with confidence.

It is my hope that with truth, grace, and laughter you and I can live inCREDIBLE lives and dig deep wells of joy.
