I love stories: telling stories and hearing stories! I like to think that our lives tell a story, and I want mine to be about His – Jesus Christ and his saving power at work in my life and in the world. This blog is my attempt to write it down.
The name Roots and Wings comes from a phrase I wrote in my journal while pregnant with my daughter Everly. I wrote a prayer asking that the Lord would give her both roots and wings.
Roots: I prayed Ephesians 3:17 over her, that Christ would dwell in her heart through faith and that she would be rooted and grounded in love and come to comprehend the length, width, height and depth of God’s love for her.
Wings: I prayed that she would live untethered to this world, living instead at the pleasure of the King and his heavenly kingdom. It’s my hope and prayer that she will fly free and exercise God’s unique gifts of grace wherever He may lead her (even if that’s one day away from mom)!
This journal is a space where I can share my own practice of roots and wings. I’ll never be an expert, but I hope that in sharing my journey in grace I can point people to the Only One. Because he is completely worthy of all of the praise!
I’d love to hear from you! Drop me a message on my contact page.
