This started out as a travel blog. Then I became a mom.
Although motherhood didn’t squash my desire for travel, God used it to help me redefine my priorities and find my authentic writer’s voice.
As a very grateful follower of Jesus, I’ve come to realize that my greatest calling and deepest passion is to see my children (and others!) come to know and love my Lord!
Where I once strove to pattern my writing after the culture, I now feel a burning desire to write about the only thing that really matters – Jesus Christ and his saving power at work in my life and in the world.
I don’t write from the perspective of an expert, but from a mom claiming all dependency on her mighty Savior.
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 blog 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.
