After living and ministering in SE Asia for over a decade, my husband and I stepped back for a year of sabbatical in 2013—365 days dedicated to seeking and hearing from God. We were, of course, changed by that year. One of our greatest realizations was that sabbath isn’t just about one day a week, or one year out of seven. It’s a way of life, a mindset that we strive to carry with us as we go about every-day life.
I am a seeker. Of God first and foremost. Of beauty, because that is how I most clearly see God in this physical world. The more I get to know Him, the greater my desire grows for Him, because I realize there is so much more to discover than I ever imagined.
I am a lover. My deepest identity is that of loving and being loved by the God of the universe, as He invites me into the dance of love that is the essence of His triune nature.
I am a creator. It is as essential to me as breathing. In this way I best reflect the character of God to the world around me. Through photographs, through words, through design. I seek to bring the beauty and order of the eternal God into this temporary, chaotic world. I seek to be and make a safe place for others in this often treacherous environment in which we live.
Join me in this sabbath journey, as I try each day to bring the sacred into the ordinary, and grasp the holiness of every moment.
