I believe life is a journey.
A journey that begins long before you take your first breath and are placed in the arms of your mother.
A journey that continues on long after you take your final breath and are placed in a grave.
It’s a journey that has many ups and downs. Many valleys. Many mountains. Many deserts.
This blog is my personal space to record my walk with Christ and the journey He takes me on each day.
The lessons He teaches me through the heartaches and joys of life.
The challenges He sets before me through His Word and His leading.
This is my place to encourage you just as He encourages me.
To challenge you as He convicts and challenges me.
To share what’s in my mind and on my heart.
A few things about me…
I’m just a simple girl from a little village in Ukraine.
I live in the busy and beautiful Seattle area.
I enjoy waking up early in the morning to watch sunrises and staying up late to watch sunsets.
I love reading. All day. And anything.
I could eat mint-chocolate chip ice-cream all day long. And Nutella. And spicy chips (please don’t judge me.) Avocados are great too. 😉
I love falling asleep to the sound of rain.
I hate shopping.
And once in a while I like my wavy/curly/whatever you want to call it hair.
I like hikes with beautiful views on top.
I like camping when there aren’t too many spiders around.
I like beaches, mountains, road trips, and the sun when it feels like coming out (which isn’t too often around here).
I like brand new journals waiting to be filled with my thoughts and prayers.
I love working with children at my church.
Teaching them about God on Sunday’s and watching them grow into all God has called them to be during some of the most critical and transformational years of their life.
I also have the privilege of working with foster children at my job.
I get to witness Christ’s love unfold daily as I work with foster parents who lovingly open up their hearts and homes to families and children in crisis. It’s absolutely beautiful.
So this is all you really need to know about me.
I’m a daughter. I’m a sister. I’m a teacher. I’m a reader. I’m a writer.
But more than anything I’m just an ordinary student who is learning daily from the greatest Teacher of all. Jesus.
You are more than welcome to join me on this journey that God has been leading me on as well as share what He has been teaching you on yours. 🙂
