Season of Grace


Seasons would undoubtedly change, and growth was inevitable. At times, I would change in season. Other times, I struggled with transition more than I would like to admit. Every stage of life had a purpose. Through it all, I found the courage to write my story.

God’s grace was present in every season, even during the coldest of winters. Spring rain was a reminder that winter had come to an end. I was more determined than ever to press through winter storms, endure summer heat and push through the dryness of fall.

Crossing a quaint bridge, I was greeted by beautifully shaped bonsai trees. Nothing is perfect of course, yet all happens in God’s perfect timing.

Journey away from fear and doubt to discover your confidence. Do what you love, love what you do and live a life of purpose. Find the courage to become who God has called you to be.

Blessings to you,
