“Remembering what God has done is one of my favorite things to do! I love the faithfulness of the LORD! It is so special to look back and see and remember what God has done. I love Psalm 34:3 which says, ‘Oh magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.’ This is such a beautiful reminder for me. He is worthy! May we magnify His Name together!

I am from the beautiful countryside of Illinois and am the second oldest of nine children. Some things I enjoy are singing, spending time outdoors, working on different projects, playing volleyball, and spending time with family and friends. I love seeing God in the everyday things and recognizing them as gifts from Him!

One of the things I am passionate about is that people know and experience the love and truth of Jesus. I want them to experience this in the everyday, whether that’s through a cheerful smile, a kind word, a listening ear, a helping hand, or times of prayer. It’s an incredible and beautiful thing to me that God uses us, any believer around the world, as His hands and feet to share His love and truth with those He places in our lives, even if it’s someone we meet only in passing. He has us, He has you, here for a reason and can use every act of obedience to change a life. May we be faithful, empty vessels for Him to flow through.”

“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10b
