It’s so nice of you to stop by! Especially since nice people are just what I need! You see, the experts tell me that you will probably expect big things from this About page. They tell me your first impression of this About page needs to be epic or you will never come back.
Well. No pressure for this new blogger there.
But – I don’t believe that will happen! Nope. Not in our case.
I’ll tell you what I do believe though …
I believe our paths are not crossing by coincidence. I have been praying for you for a while now!
I believe we will be good for each other! We need each other. We will spur each other on to surround our hearts and homes with God’s Word. But mostly our hearts.
I believe the more we dig in God’s Word, the more we will crave it. Skeptical? I hear you. In fact, I used to be you. But it can happen. It did happened to me. Not overnight, of course. But, in hindsight, I can now pinpoint some things that led to a still-growing enthusiasm for God’s Word, which you will hear all about on the blog.
And most importantly …
(ironically after all those “I believes”)
I believe that what I think is not what’s important here. The most important thing is what our Lord thinks. And He graciously spells that out for us in His Word. So let’s not take that for granted. Let’s continually remind each other to surround our hearts and homes with what God thinks!
What do I have in mind?
My first and most obvious suggestion is to put pretty Bible verses in frames, on your computer, on your phone, on your calendar, on your bathroom mirror, in your car, in your office – you get the idea – everywhere! And I will help with that – by sending you a free hand-lettered printable every Thursday! Only email subscribers will get free printables!
Second, well… the rest will be coming weekly on the blog, which I will also include in the email arriving every Thursday. I would be honored to have you join my email list. And I promise it will only come once a week.
Those experts? They also tell me you want to know random fun things to help you get to know me so …
I’m a long-time Jesus-follower, a wife, a mom, a new grandmother, and a women’s ministry leader at my church. My all-time favorite thing to do is Bible study – really! And I’m guessing that you already figured out that I enjoy hand-lettering and calligraphy. My husband and sons have turned me into a pretty avid baseball and football fan. I’m crazy about reading and coffee – usually together. And I don’t believe in coincidence or luck. But the most random fact of all: I have broken my nose 3 times – one baseball, one softball, and one pogo stick. Are we having fun yet?
One last thing those pesky experts tell me is to find a way to make my site stand out in the crowd. But my desire is to make my Savior, Jesus Christ, stand out – not me. Please hold me accountable. It would mean a lot to me if you would pray for me as you read this! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Enjoying your company already,
Psalm 1:2 HCSB – Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.
P.S. If you want to suggest a hand-lettered verse for the next Thursday Freebie, just let me know! You can reply to any Thursday email.
