My walk with Jesus Christ began in church at the age of seven and was nurtured while being raised in a Christian home in Rochester Hills, Mich. After graduating from the University of Michigan, I spent nearly 20 years investing my time and talents in various industries including sports, entertainment and politics primarily in Tampa, Fla.
While my career was blossoming, my faith was subtly declining. On June 29, 2008, I repented and recommitted my life to Jesus. The Holy Spirit inspired me to seek God with all my heart, which meant learning how to spend extended time with Him. This began a new wild and undomesticated journey of faith that forever changed the course of my life.
The Holy Spirit spent the next five years preparing me, and after selling my home and giving away my possessions, to the exact day of my repentance the Holy Spirit led me into the wilderness. It was during this time I learned what it meant to become a follower of Christ.
Five years and more than 100,000 miles later, my spiritual walkabout taught me how to ‘deny myself daily’ and live outside of my comfort zone. Ultimately, I found my pearl of great price, my secret to abundant living: seeking daily solitude with the Heavenly Father, pursuing daily fellowship with others, and submitting daily to the will of my Creator.
I’ve learned to embrace God’s mystery of living day-by-day, to trust in His love and care for me, and to practice my faith through hundreds of divine appointments. While nearing the end of my journey, the Holy Spirit laid it on my heart to share this pearl - this journey - through a weekly blog that testified to the goodness of God. For six months I shared my experiences and lessons while working out my faith, trusting that others would be inspired and encouraged as they worked out their faith too.
After pressing pause, I was led on another summer adventure across the country and moved from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to Brookings, South Dakota. Within days of arriving, I received direction to repurpose this collection of blogs into an inspiring guidebook of faith. My Holy Spirit-led journey continues back where it all began in Florida. I am returning as a dog mom to Sally Mae, this time settling in with friends in Vero Beach.
While the Holy Spirit has perfectly guided my way, my prayer is that my “two fish and five loaves” will inspire you to know Jesus and guide you into a deeper walk of faith too.
