Why emerging? Well, quite simply because that is what is happening. To me, to you, to all of creation. It is impossible to stand still, to hold back time, to relive yesterday. So, we may as well grab ahold of each day and give it all we’ve got knowing that everything is in process.
I am an emerging wife, mama, and pastor. I want to do this thing called life to the best of my abilities and not waste a single second or opportunity. Sometimes I get it right, often I get it wrong. God’s grace is enough. God’s grace helps me dust off. God’s grace helps me emerge. There is so much beauty and pain in the journey.
I am a justice idealist and a kingdom chaser. A woman who believes and strives to live imperfectly “on earth as it is in heaven.” A seeker on this journey of faith and life and love and mystery. I am a lover of learning and growth, of connecting and serving. A girl with big dreams and big vision, striving to balance family, ministry and all else that is life.
You are emerging too. Creation is emerging. Never stagnant, always developing, forming, growing, and taking shape.
This blog will speak to my journey of faith and life; of gaining and losing. A journey of learning to see God in the mundane and magnificent; of finding compassion in the midst of chaos. A journey where choosing love in the midst of hurt and struggle brings me closer to God, and where finding abundant life emerging smack dab in the middle of my simple existence is the answer to every prayer.
Come along. Emerge with me…
