Whenever I look at the cover of a glossy home decorating magazine, I remember all the things my life is not. It’s not carefully curated, it’s not fabulously on-trend and it’s definitely not shiny! Instead, my everyday life as a Christian is usually messy, unglamorous and intensely ordinary.
But I’m committed to figuring out how to live for God where I am. I love the fact that although the results are often underwhelming, the rewards are unequalled. Because life with God is not a magazine cover or a social media update or a viral trend. Life with God is a surprising story of forgiveness, transformation and love that he continues to write in the lives of people like you and me.
And that’s what I write about—how God shows up in unexpected ways in the everyday lives of ordinary people. If we pay attention, we can glimpse him at work in this intricate and astonishing world that he made.
I write about these things because God entered human history in the person of his Son, Jesus, and it’s only through him that I know God at all. In the ultimate ‘show and tell’, Jesus revealed to us what God is like. And he showed how the Father’s surprising story of forgiveness and love transforms human stories like mine and, I hope, yours.
