You Are Welcome Here…

Dearest Friends,

When I decided to start a blog, I did not ever anticipate the life-giving blessings I would receive by meeting again and meeting new, so many of you…



who would like nothing more than

to bring God glory with your life.

You, who love God with your whole-self,

and who are navigating your way through this life,

knowing it is only by His grace you can.

You, who want to love the way God loves,

those He has put in your life

to serve during your waking hours.

You, who do not have all the answers, but know Who does,

 and so live to know Him, and make Him known.


I write to kindle or help fuel a flame in you to pursue God with your whole self, and encourage you, no matter where you are in this life to draw near to Him. I write for His glory, aiming to please Him, yet I am my heart floods with gratitude for the many emails, comments and encouraging words that have been left for me as you take time to share your heart and thoughts with me. 

Time is so precious and fleeting for us all. Any amount of it you spend here at…  

A Life Surrendered…

is a humbling gift to me. I do not take it for granted. You are welcome here. It is my pleasure and honor to meet you. Even if I never know you have visited here or do not see you face-to-face until that day when we ALL see HIM, I am so blessed by you.

I purpose to live my life, with integrity, authentic and true, by keeping God first, then my family is my priority. Blogging follows those commitments I have made.  Thank you for journeying with me…

    Michele-Lyn, I have not told you this but the Lord used your heart of surrender to re-open mine after walking through a dark valley recently. I am thankful that Barbie found you and that she found me 😉 In a way He found me again recently and is continaully pulling me closer to Himself and further out of myself, praise God!

    I am thankful to walk this path with so many beautiful messy souls that are desperately in love with Him and daily seeking more of Him. Praying for His glory to be seen through all of our words!

      I am do humbled and so honored by your beautiful comments here. I love this line you wrote — this testimony — God is pulling you closer to Himself and pulling you further out of yourself. I know what that is like, and it is a most beautiful and challenging work at the same time.

      To God be the glory for all of the wonderful things He has done! I am grateful for you and your heart.

      Blessings to you, friend,

    I am so thankful to have found your blog! You have blessed me tremendously already. May God continue to use your words to bring Him glory and to bring hope and healing to others.

      I feel the same way… and agree with you in the same prayer for your life as you let your light shine for Him.

      Thank you, truly and with love,
