I’m overjoyed you’ve chosen to spend some time with me here in my tiny slice of the world.
I’ll keep this short and sweet because I truly believe you can best get to know a writer by her art – that is, through the work of her words.
I started seriously writing as a result of being saved by Jesus. I fell in love with the Bible, read many theological articles, watched sermons online, listened to endless podcasts, and Google searched from the simplest of questions (can I pray with my eyes open?) to the heaviest of them all. I had so many thoughts running through my mind, I had no choice but to write them all out. Less than two years later I added becoming the best wife I could be to my studies.
What I realized is that the more I pursue God, the more convictions I have that demand to be turned into something worth sharing. If I Learn Well – through Scripture, Christian resources, and careful study – I am able to Love – God, my husband, my neighbors – Better. I’ve always had a love for thoughts that have been turned into beautifully crafted words, and it is my hope that during your time here I can inspire and encourage you to learn well and love better.
Here’s a little description on each of the categories you’ll find here:
- Faith // I strongly believe that the Bible is the best way to learn about God; the more we devote ourselves to knowing God the better we can love him. It is my hope that my writings here stir a deeper love for God’s word in your heart, and inspire you to live out your faith like the Jews in Acts 17:11, who “examined the Scriptures daily”.
- Marriage // The most beautiful part of marriage is that it is the closest thing we have on earth to the eternal picture of the gospel. It is truly a testimony to the Lord’s amazing grace that he would allow his creation to image himself and his purpose. Marriage is something worth building up. It is truly a deep-clean for your spiritual life. A healthy marriage brings you closer to God, through the sanctification process of learning, forgiving, and repentance.
- Homemaking // I believe homemaking is an art that is not only practical, but one of the best ways to serve your spouse. Whether you hold a vocation outside of the home, or your primary job is taking care of your children, homemaking isn’t just a hobby – it’s a lifestyle.
- Myrick Memories // I’m a sucker for a good love story. In this section of the blog I’ll share with you some of the most dear-to-me memories that belong to me and my husband. You’ll often see them pop up in other categories as well, as the stories I tell often are just events God uses to showcase his glory and sanctify us along the way.
Now you’re free to go read some slices of my heart. I hope you get fresh ideas on how to learn well in order to love God and those in your life better. Please stay awhile and visit often.
