Welcome! I’m Terri and thank you for visiting my About Me page.
What is this blog about?
This blog is for you! It's meant to encourage you to seek and find God in every moment of your life. The posts bring fresh insights and messages to awaken you to the security and peace that comes when we are in an intimate relationship with the Lord. God is your #1 fan! His love for you is unfailing, never-ending, and a sure thing when all else is fleeting and unstable. You are the Lord's child. In Him we find rest, trust, hope, love, peace, and security.
My passion for the Lord comes from a placing of knowing Him and wanting to know Him even more. There is so much to discover in this Heavenly Father and child relationship and it amazes me every day. God says, "Seek me and you will find me when you seek me with your whole heart. I will be found by you." (Jeremiah 29:13-14, NIV) I encourage you to open wide your heart and you will be fantastically amazed like me!
As a nurse and believer in Jesus Christ, I advocate for holistic wellness—mind, body, and spirit. Spiritual wellness happens when we awaken to and tend to the needs of our soul. If I profess to share the love of Christ with others, then I need to be aware of what happens when my life-path intersects with another. Who I am and what I bring in that moment may have a profound effect on the other individual. Am I presenting and bringing my best self as my life intersects with the world? My best self happens when I am thriving within my heart and soul and deeply connected to God.
