Welcome to the Wilderness

Deep breaths now…here we go.  

If you’re here right now, it’s probably because you already know me. You are a kind and supportive friend. You are loved and appreciated. 

In case someone happens upon this little corner of the internet, I suppose I should begin with an introduction: 

Welcome!  My name is Danielle.  I am a Jesus-loving pastor’s wife, homeschooling mama of four who also manages to cram a full time work-from-home job into the schedule. I lean on Jesus to survive. He is my sustenance….my Living Water. Coffee helps too! I have spent my fair share of time in the wilderness of this life, and in some ways, I guess I think we’re all sort of in the wilderness until that great and glorious day when we meet the God-man Jesus face to face–that day we’ll finally make it to the Promised Land. Amen? 

Sometimes I yearn to get in touch with a piece of myself that seems to have drifted away in the busyness of life, and so, I’ve decided to write.  Maybe no one will read what I write, and that’s ok. Maybe one person will stumble upon these words and be encouraged. So I will write. And I will pray that you are built up, strengthened and made aware of the fact that you are not alone. You are seen and known by the Almighty Lover of your soul. 

Welcome. There is much beauty to be found along the road in the wilderness.  May we all have eyes to see it.
