This is me.

I was asked to prepare my testimony for a group retreat I went on this past week and I was at a loss. My walk with Jesus is fairly new and this is the first time I have been asked to share such a thing as this. Where do I start? How do I begin? What do I say? All these questions racing through my mind. I realized I first needed to know exactly what was expected of me. What exactly does the word "testimony" mean? Thank the Lord for Webster Dictionary! This handy little book has been my go to for many years when I come across questions such as these. Testimony- evidence, or proof: something that supports a fact or a claim. My next question- what is my evidence or proof? What has Jesus done in my life? What are the facts? As I thought of the answers to these questions my testimony came to life. And as I began writing my testimony I couldn't help but think about my blog and what I want for this little piece of cyber space I call my own.
I returned home from my retreat knowing, with out a doubt, what this blog is meant to be. My testimony. The truth. Nothing more and nothing less.
This is me, my life, and the amazing things God is doing for me daily.


  1. I've always had a hard time sharing my testimony with people! I never really thought mine was all that interesting.....grew up in church,dad was a pastor, went to a Christian college. Nothing life changing. But one day my dad explained to me that your Christian walk means very little if it's not shared. We weren't designed to keep all this inside and what may seem boring or not sufficient to us could mean the world to someone listening to us!! I'll be praying for you as you continue this awesome testimony blog!! It's been a big encouragement to me :-)

  2. Where was your retreat at? My mom and sister went to one this last weekend also?

  3. Jeff- The retreat I went on was with the other interns at my church. We went to Newport and it ended up being a perfect day! I will write more about it on Wednesday:)
    Anonymous (AKA Casey)- Your words are so encouraging and so true! Thank you for sharing a little bit of your testimony on here
