My goal as a writer is to encourage women to draw closer to Christ through looking at scripture and understanding that scripture is all we need in order to be equipped. The Holy Spirit will minister to all who have put their faith in the Lord, Jesus, in His death and resurrection. Please see: Why Did A Loving God Kill His Son?

I used to be able to tell people I was “saved” at age four. But I no longer believe I can. I don’t actually know when it happened. I know before I grew in the understanding of the Gospel, the basic understanding I had, God completely used in my life. I realized the need to truly turn to Christ and that HE alone defeated sin, not us. He helped me break away from sin and truly repent.
And then the Holy Spirit directed me in God’s word. The Lord tore holes in the false doctrines I had placed my hope in and thought were safe and okay. As I explain in the posts below, I very much was into Christian mysticism for a large portion of my life. Trying to “hear” God in silence and symbols. I used my emotions, dreams, and other symbols as affirmations from God, but when it felt “quiet” and there was nothing going on, I doubted.
I know now how LOUD God is clearly speaking is His word. He is NOT quiet. He is NOT a still, small voice. No. The King of kings is roaring! He is thunderous in His commands and promises. Just read His word and you’ll see.
During this time, God gave me a sister in Christ who challenged some of my views, as well. I struggled realizing I very much had a legalistic mindset, as I came from a background of focusing on sanctification and holiness. If we do not understand the Gospel properly, then we will misunderstand everything else.
We weren’t at a church, my husband and I. But from 2017-2021, God used that time to minister through His word to us. I learned to give my husband to God and trust God and His timing. I discovered pastors online (not saying this is a substitute for church) but these pastors spoke the truth, challenged, and tore apart what I thought to be true. I found sound women ministering to other women. See: Godly Men & Women I Recommend To Listen To
The Lord helped me finally understand the Gospel in-depth. I realized the importance of not treating the Bible like a magic-8 ball. Read in order. Read and understand the context. Repeat.
My husband and I are now looking for a home church, and we might have found one. Please pray for us.
When I first started this blog in 2016, I misunderstood a lot of things and I was under certain deception. The blog is currently being edited, over half of my posts are now private. Either, they had wrong theology, or really weak messages that were fluffy and inspirational poster-like.
I hope what I have found in the word of God can be encouraging to you.
Testimony of how I realized I did not fully understand the Gospel as well as I thought:

BLOGGING QUESTION FOR ME? – if you want to contact me because you have a question on how to do something related to blogging, I highly recommend you check out my page on my second blog. I have compiled all of the blogger 101 posts I’ve made on one page. This covers settings, pictures, hyperlinks, comments, where to find things, etc. 🙂
If you ask me a blogging question, more than likely I’m going to redirect you to a post on this page. ❤ I hope that helps. You can do it! 🙂
I will not disciple anyone (I appreciate the compliment, but I am not the right person). I have a lot to learn myself and internet connections do not allow proper discipleship. You need a church to help with proper counsel.
