Hello, friend!

Welcome to Living Transformed! In this life, all of our journeys are full of hurt and healing, joy and sorrow, peace and chaos. The enemy is on a mission to kill our joy, steal our purpose, and destroy our light; but Jesus came to give us ABUNDANT life through HIM. Do you ever feel weighed down by the burdens of life and heavy from the daily pressures? My passion and mission is to encourage, edify, and build up in the love of Christ. Life is not easy, but Christ’s heart for us is gentle and lowly- His burden is light. Let’s join together, through the strength of the Spirit, to fight our tendencies to conform to the patterns of this world. Join me in transforming our minds by the renewing Word of God! Let’s live ABUNDANTLY by dwelling in Christ’s presence, for in His presence there is FULLNESS of joy.

My prayer for all of us is found in Colossians 3

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

No condemnation

I was late. REALLY late. I was supposed to pick up the kids I nannied at 3, but I had been stuck in traffic (and maybe spent a little too much time at Goodwill hunting for treasures). Only back roads stood between me and the daycare. As any good, country-raised Southern girl knows, back roads’…
