Hi! I’m Mindy and I am so glad you are here!
First, I am enthusiastically God’s girl! I aim to always be a good example of His perfect love, mercy and grace, which he pours out on me in GREAT gulps! I hope you’ll find a good bit of that hope and grace here, lifting and encouraging your soul.
Because of the tremendous healing God has brought me through in my own life, the heartbeat of my life is to see every woman, come to know, understand, and accept the deep, transformational, forever love God has for them. And to see every woman throw down and stomp on every hurt, every rejection, every negative thing in their life that holds them back, rising up in freedom, into a vibrant life lived with purpose! Pairing that passion with my love of writing, this blog was born.
I find a soothing in my soul when spending quiet time with God and reading his Word. Because of this, I love writing short devotionals, or stories, reflecting upon the messages of these quiet moments, as well as life lessons learned. Several of these stories have been published in the Wordgirls Collectives, Wit, Whimsy & Wisdom: A 12-Week Devotional to Shine the Light on God’s Word, and Snapshots of Hope & Heart: A 12-Week Devotional to Shine the Light on God’s Word. Soon I hope to complete and publish an inspirational bible study book which walks the reader along a journey of truth and healing for all the hurts in their life. I am so excited to share this life-changing book!
I am married to my wonderful engineer sweetheart for 28 years. We have a beautiful daughter who is a clinical social worker for homeless Veterans with a VA campus in North Carolina. She is married to a brave Wounded Warrior who is a police officer on the same VA campus. Together, they are making a positive difference in the lives of our treasured Veterans. A few years ago, they adopted the joy-of-my-heart granddaughter who is now 11 years old. I also have a son who resides in Heaven, after a terrible school bus accident moved him and three of his schoolmates there when he was 9.
The other love of my life is preparing for and leading ladies Bible study groups, and small community groups in my home. This literally feeds my thirsty soul! I highly recommend being part of a small group in your community or church to uplift and encourage you in your day to day living. Having a small group of trusted friends to share life with makes all the difference 💗
