God has written many things upon my heart…

…yet one of the most engraved statements He has spoken to me was at a conference in 2016. He whispered, but it felt more like a shout. Have you ever had that happen? When God speaks ever so gently, yet His Whispers make thunder roll throughout your very being. I will never forget it. I was in a season of life when everything seemed hopeless. I felt stripped away from everything, and yet found the most important thing imaginable! The never-ending faithful love of God! When sitting in that conference, He whispered “Pen My Love”… I sat their completely and utterly confused. For at that moment I was thinking a lot of various thoughts, and none of them had to do with writing, or the need to pick up a pen. It was as though even in the midst of my brokenness he was giving me a mandate. One that would cause healing to my heart and soul. So I did. I began to “pen” his love, even when the light deep within seemed to barely flicker. Through songs and pages of entries, I started to write again.. Through this process, the raw state of my heart was becoming pliable. What I found through penning His love was in fact freedom, truth and the unending Love He has for me!

My Desire…

…through this blog is to bare wide open the pages of heartache, joy, freedom, hope, and love! I want to give a voice to those that can tell their stories of vulnerability through song, poetry, life experiences, stories, books, etc. I fully believe we are living in a specific season! God is awakening the power of the written word!

So grab a cup of coffee and dust off your pen. There is so much that has yet to be written.
