I am a child of God, a wife to Mike, a mother to the two E’s, a daughter, a sister, a Christ follower, a United Methodist pastor, and a sugar-based life form. I don’t have the answers and I certainly don’t have all the questions but I’m on the journey and am trying to walk the walk.
I started this blog when diagnosed with a brain tumor in May 2010, so I’ve walked this journey of cancer, but life is not about that one instance, it’s about the walking in between. You’ll see sermons, reflections, and health bits (I believe in the power of prayer!!). I’ve been privileged to walk alongside college students in campus ministry 13 years. I’ve been walking with all ages in a church setting for 3 years…
The most important thing I’ve learned is that it’s good to have fellow journeyers. “It is the shelter of another that the people live.” Amen. None of us walks this path alone. I am thankful for the community of faith and support that surrounds and the Spirit that guides and leads!
We recorded the story of my second brain surgery in 2013 on my friend and colleague’s Art of the Sermon podcast in 2016: http://www.defininggrace.com/aots/033/
Fast forward to the present…I’m excited to see where the Triune God leads. As Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Lord, make a way!!
