Are you longing for deeper faith and a transformed walk with God? Do you feel like your relationship with God is drifting? Then journey with me into the heart of God as we anchor our lives in His.

Let him who boasts boast about this; that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight.

Jeremiah 9:24

Connecting with God How I Can Help You

For over twenty years, God has used my desperate need of Him as a wife, mom, and ministry leader to immerse me in His attributes. Along the way, God has led me to a life changing discovery: there is a powerful intersection between His heart and our struggles. That seeking to know God's whole heart and mind — not just the familiar, comfortable parts — is often the missing link between the intimacy we desire with God and the intimacy we actually experience with Him.

Pursuing God through prayerful contemplation of His attributes has led me into the deep with God. It has transformed my daily experience of His power and presence in my life.

It can transform your relationship with Him, too.

What I offer is experience and companionship for your faith journey. I've spent thirty years in the trenches with God grappling with the mystery of His sovereignty and love, His grace and wrath, while praising Him, proving His faithfulness — and yes, wrestling with Him, as well. My relationship with God isn't perfect. Far from it. It's not without struggle and unanswered questions, either. But it is intimate, vibrant and growing. It is full of soul-satisfying hope in the heart of an unchanging God who is an Anchor in our troubled times.

But I am only scratching the surface of what is available to YOU. When you seek to know God through His marvelous, mysterious, faith-inspiring attributes, you too can discover the intimacy with God you've always wanted!
