This blog has been a mere thought in my heart for many months now. Finally, it's here. Most of my life, I have always had stronger convictions than the mainstream, looked at life a little differently and felt just a tad removed from the masses. Through much personal growth and God's guidance I have finally realized that He expects more from me. I now understand what it means to live in this world but not be a part of it. He has asked me to strive a little higher...push a little harder...live a little different. I beleive that serving God doesn't stop with our church attendance or prayer time...it should overflow into every area of our life: how we treat our family, raise our children, spend our money, keep our home, feed and nourish our bodies among other things. This blog will serve as a sounding board for all these areas, and more, to inspire others out there. Regardless of where you are on your journey I think you'll find something beneficial here whether it's practical tips, spiritual insights, or daily challenges. I hope that you'll be patient with me as I navigate this new world of blogging while keeping my personal priorities in line. I consider this to be an imperfect journey...because it's full of His grace. We fall and get back up again. We take a few steps back and He gives us strength to move forward. We struggle and He pushes us through. So here we are. Are you ready to embark in this uncommon life with me?
