about this blog

At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness and purity of morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure.  We cannot mingle with the splendors we see. But all of the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in. -C.S. Lewis

I love this quote because it reminds me that the world I live in is broken and things just aren’t what God had in mind.

This blog has been through several transformations over the years, and I believe God is shaping it (and myself) into something that tells about His truth in my life. I hope to one day pen a book, but this will do for now.

One day, on the other side of the door, I will be fully alive and joyful with God, perfect without fear and pain.

But for the time being, on this side of the door, I will log many of my spiritual reflections and personal stories for the sake of sharing them and helping others feel less alone.
