Hello friend.

Welcome to this little oasis, a source of water and life to quench your thirst along the journey. I don't claim to be anything that I'm not. I'm not the answer. I'm not the source. I'm a mere vessel moved to write; a blank canvas with which our Maker has chosen to draw on.

I'm blessed, beloved and beautiful--though most days I fail to believe it.

I write to remember. I write to proclaim the truths that so easily slip through my grasp. I write to share, raw stories of real life--messy, untidy. I write to encourage, to proclaim the greatest of all truths  >> you are never alone <<

I'm here and here I shall remain by the grace of God.

I started this here blog in 2015 more or less on a whim. I felt called to write, because I was being led to words and encouraged to share. I didn't think much of it at the time. I just started researching how to start a blog and low and behold I stepped into this world.

Little by little this new world took shape and Ark in the Desert was formed. Words flowed out of my head onto this computer screen and published for the world to read. At first I thought maybe it was for you, the reader, that was why I was doing this here thing. But as time progressed I realized that the more I wrote the more the Lord brought me to himself. The truth I wrote opened my eyes and softened my heart. 

It's a passion of mine to write truth, to expose my life and heart for any and all to read and to encourage and build up those around me. We all live in this desert wasteland with the promise of rain. We stand longing for our thirst to be quenched, to be satisfied and made complete. But even in the midst of this desert land the Lord is moving, He is creating and forming; He is doing miraculous things.

I hope Ark in the Desert encourages you as much as it encourages me. The Lord uses strange things to bring us closer to himself and it is my prayer that He uses my murmurs to proclaim loudly His unconditional love and abounding grace.

Would you like to join me? 

It's simple. You give me your first name {so I can address you personally} and email address and I give you weekly encouragement sent straight to your inbox {the stuff I don't share with the whole world, you know a little more personal}, and I give you freebies and printables. Oh and did I mention it's free?

Yep free. No gimmicks, no shenanigans, no spam and no junk. I'm not into that.

I just want to be friends and encourage you the best I know how; truth.

Want to be friends?

Just enter your info above this here sentence.

No not into being friends? No worries. I'm still here, for whenever you need a little bit of encouragement.

 

Let me show you around a bit.

I like when words flow through my fingers forming ideas I had not yet even thought; my life as a writer. I write about nearly everything with truth sprinkled in, truths laid on my heart, stories needed to be shared; life. 

I try to make it easy for you. Under THE BLOG section you will find three categories:

 

{Encouragement & Reflection}                             {Love & Marriage}                            {Truth & The Gospel}
