I was around seventeen the first time I remember reading the Word of God. I became a lecturer at my local Catholic Church while pursuing the Sacrement of Confirmation. For some reason, 1 Corinthians 13:1 was a verse I always remembered hearing and reading.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
An intial fire was lit then, but without the oxygen of the Word in my life, the fire became a smoldering coal.
At twenty-nine, I caught the fire again and asked Jesus into my heart. The years that followed were contradictory in nature. There was darkness coexisting with light. There was joy coexisting with burden. There was a career coexisting with a yearning to do ministry. But, what was not contradictory was the Word of God. My Bible became the oxygen that I needed to keep that fire going. It was water that protected me in the midst of the fire. Last, it was the constant fuel for the fire when I was called to share it.
This site is a result of those years. It is an opportunity to share how God has worked in my life and communicates what He gives me in relation to scripture and how it applies to our life and ever growing faith.
