About Me

My photo

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

Help Myself To You - Kathy Troccoli

I've been doing  a new Bible study on my own this summer called Falling in Love with Jesus, by Dee Brestin and Kathy Troccoli.  (I hope to maybe lead it at church in the spring). I must be honest with you that it has so touched my heart in a way I wasn't expecting and drawn me deep into the Word every morning.  I've gotten so much out of it.  This song was part of the study today, so I looked it up to be able to share it with you.

This was the verse that stuck out to me today, as well.

Psalm 119:147--I rise before dawn and cry for help:  I have put my hope in Your Word.  

This reattempt to adopt has not been an easy decision for me.  I've literally fought God through every single step so far, begging Him to shut this door if it is not His will for us to pursue it again. He hasn't done that, though, and my husband keeps reminding of how the door even reopening period was completely of God. So, we move along, but not without waking up early every morning and surrendering it all to God again.   That's why this verse and this song really touched me today.  I hope you are encouraged by them, as well, in whatever circumstance you find yourself in.
