Intentional spiritual growth. That’s what lights my fire. I love the idea that we can learn and grow, and that it can happen without fear, or condemnation. We aren’t striving to prove anything or earn anything or impress God or anyone. We are receiving our life as a gift, and out of gratitude, learning how to turn our hearts more and more Godward.
In the course of my ministry, this interest has led me to explore so many different topics of life and spirituality. Identity. Emotional wellness. Inner Healing. How we read and relate to scripture. How we can turn our attention toward God. How we apply all of this in our daily lives.
Those varied interests have all shown up here on the blog in one way or another, and it’s fascinating to me to see what resonates with people. I’ve been writing online since 2008, and writing here at this blog since March of 2010. Since I started this blog, I’ve written 322 posts — more than 200,000 words! Wow.
I’m stunned just thinking about that. (Quite a testament to what you can do, if you keep plugging away, just a little at a time.)
