Hi there! I’m Stacey. Wife to one hard workin’ farmer. Mommy to four love-them-to-pieces-but-sometimes-they-drive-me-crazy munchkins. I love No Bake Jello cheesecake (I know weird right?). Feed my kids Lucky Charms for breakfast (seriously just about every day). Sit on my front porch as much as possible (except when it’s cold outside which is like half the year). Consider shopping to be therapy. Go for a run when I need alone time. And watch HGTV whenever possible. (Did someone say Fixer Upper?)
But most of all I’m just a girl who’s finally realized this whole loving God thing isn’t possible unless I spend time with him. How can you love someone (and I mean the real gonna-devote-my-entire-life-to-you-no-matter-the-cost kind of love) if you don’t know them? It’s simply not gonna happen (cue frustration and guilt). And I’m to the point where I’m tired of feeling guilty. Tired of just skimming the surface. Tired of looking for some feel good thought to get me through the day. I want more!
I want to understand (to the best of my ability) this God who was willing to leave heaven; humble himself in human skin; and bleed to death on a cross for me. I want to know this God who desires a personal relationship…with me. I have a book all about Him – my Bible. And I have the freedom to study it – for myself. By digging in one page at a time.
So I invite you to come along on my journey. To know God more so we can love God more. It’s time we stop skimming the surface. It’s time we have some deeper devotions. I’m ready. Are you?
