Hi! I’m a gal with southern roots who loves reading, hiking, traveling and UNC basketball (go Heels!). I moved to the Midwest in 2003 for ministry and planted roots with my husband, Mark, son, J, and one cute golden-doodle.

I lived out many longings of my heart during my 17 years in full-time ministry. I also wrestled through what it really means to be in relationship with God.

In the midst of life that is exhausting and demands that are endless, our relationship with God can easily become one more area that adds to the pressure to perform and make it all work.

We know this can’t be what God intends. It’s not even what we want. And yet there seems to be no way around it or out of it.

But what if there is?

What if God wants to relate to us in a different way? What if He is more concerned about your heart and a relationship with you than anything you could ever do for Him? What if He wants you to live with Him and not just for Him? What if He wants to lead you to a place where you can actually enjoy life?

I believe He does.

My life has changed drastically over the last decade as I’ve wrestled through these ideas. I had to come face to face with my focus on religion (and ministry) instead of on God, my driven service instead of my pursuit of God, my desire to please others instead of a desire to please God. I had to learn, instead, that God is faithful not predictable, generous not focused on my efforts, gracious not demanding.

Your life can change too. Busyness and service don’t have to crowd out intimacy with God.

Finding Rhythms Enjoying Life is a space where you will find personal stories so you know you are not alone, practical ideas that are ready to implement, and accessible resources designed to lead you (and those you influence) into intimacy with God!

My prayer is that you will find inspiration to live as God intended, in intimacy with Him.
