Hello friends. If you know me you know I am a major music lover, and this week one of my favorite singer/songwriters Matt Wertz released a new EP titled “While We’re Becoming.” This is a must if you want some music to end your winter blues and get you in the mood for spring and summer. I have been a fan of Matt since his Young Life days and his albums have always been among my favorites in music, and this EP is no different. As a fan I have enjoyed the progression and maturity of his music over the years and it has only gotten better with time. “While We’re Becoming” is a familiarly refreshing album that gives long-time fans the classic Wertz sound they have come to love, while providing them with a new and fresh side to his music. If you want some new music this album will not disappoint.

I am currently sitting at my parent’s house trying to think of something to blog about. However, the only thing I am thinking of at the moment is how I hope to wake up in the morning to a winter wonderland. I feel like such a little kid..haha! I cannot think of a better way to start my Christmas vacation than for it snow. However, if I do not get my wish I will have to settle for pictures of the snow that were taken this past March..I have shared one of my favorites for your enjoyment! I hope to spend more quality time writing on here over break so I will return soon with hopefully some deeper food for thought and of course some updated pictures of the SNOW! Merry Christmas friends! 🙂
Hello friends and welcome to my new blog. If you know me and have visited my blog before you will notice that some changes have taken place including the change of name, and that my previous posts are no longer here. I love to write, and share my story and the Lord has been leading me to be more purposeful in doing that through my blog. The name “My Walk of Grace” originated with the help of my friend Renee (check out her awesome blog at: http://devotionaldiva.com). I chose it because it describes my life both spiritually as well as physically. I am so thankful to be saved by the grace of Jesus Christ, and humbled to receive that grace everyday. I also have a disability called Cerebral Palsy that requires me to use arm-crutches to assist with my walking, It is only by His grace that I am able to get up and walk each day and there is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for giving me that ability. I hope that you will continue to visit my blog as I continue to share about “my walk of grace,” and I look forward to learn about yours as well.
Hello friends and family –
Sorry for my lack of updates these days. Life has been crazy busy with all that school has to offer. However, I am thankful to say that I finished my first semester of seminary with great success. I am taking summer classes starting in July, but until then I am enjoying visiting with my parents and I am going to help out during training at Camp Cedar Cliff (the camp I have worked at the past two summers). I am looking forward to that. It will give me a chance to see camp friends and enjoy Asheville, which is one of my favorite places to be! 🙂
Also, as many of you may already know, my dad lost his job of thirty years in March. He started a temp job around a week ago, but is not the best work environment and it is different than anything he has ever done. However, it is a job and we know that God works out all things for His good. Please continue to pray for dad as he is working this job and that God uses him to be a light in such a dreary place. Also, pray that God will provide another job in his timing if that be his will. Thanks so much for praying! Please let me know if there is anything I can be praying for you about! You guys are amazing! I love you all! Will write again soon–I promise! 🙂
” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” ~Psalm 126:3
As I think back over the past year, I marvel at the great things the Lord has done in my life. He has taught me so much about Himself and who I am in Him. He has also guided me into what is now a new season in my life. One year ago I would have told you “Absolutely Not” if you asked me was I considering futhering my education immediately following my undergraduate degree. However, over the past six months the Lord slowly began to change my perspective, and gave me the desire to pursue my masters in counseling. Counseling is a field that has been an interest of mine since high school, but not something I felt led to pursue until now.
So here I am months later getting ready to move back to Wake Forest, North Carolina where I also spent a year of my undergrad, to pursue my masters in Biblical Counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am excited about this transition, and know that it is exactly what the Lord wants me to do. The Lord has confirmed in so many ways that I am doing the right thing, and has so graciously provided me the means to do it. He has allowed me to receive a full tuition scholarship, and a scholarship that also provides for part of my housing. Thanks to all of you who prayed with me regarding that. Without this provision I would not be able to continue my education. I am in awe of how God provides for His children in His time and that it is always enough, and that I should never doubt that God is in control of every detail of my life.
As we are now in the beginning of 2009, I look forward to all God has in store for me in the upcoming year. I am excited about being back in WF reconnecting with old friends and making new ones, and most importantly serving Him daily! Thanks to my friends and family for your continued support and prayers during this time. You guys are awesome and I love you! I will do my best to keep you updated via the blog.
Since I did not post before Christmas I hope you all had a good holiday and are beginning this new year refreshed, and that you take some time today to thank God for the great things He has done in your life!
