Hi, and welcome to A Place to Dwell! Grab some coffee or tea — and maybe your favorite journal — and do some exploring. I'm praying that the words and images I share here will be an encouragement to your heart, and above all else, that they will help you know God more fully and live your life more fully for Him — no matter what season you find yourself in.
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
— Ephesians 3:16-19
How can I encourage you today?
cultivating an expectant faith
An expectant faith is one that doesn't try to predict the future, but rather, it's the kind of faith that waits in hopeful dependence to be surprised by God's goodness. It's a faith that's confident in the truth that we have a good, good Father who is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask, imagine, or dream. Let's dive deep into scripture together and grow our confidence in who God is and all He can do.
living fully for god in every season
I love to dream big and pray big — and live this life as fully as I can for God's glory. You'll find goal-setting posts here, as well as personal stories and encouragement for embracing the story God is writing in your life and using your gifts, talents, and God-given dreams to the very fullest for Him.
singleness, dating, & relationships
I have a heart for encouraging women to flourish in their seasons of singleness, waiting on the Lord purposefully, rather than passively. My own season of waiting has stretched longer than I thought it might, but I'm still hopeful (and prayerful!) that God's working on an amazing story that'll be more than worth the wait. You can read about my own journey of singleness here, as well as find resources for dating intentionally and building strong Godly relationships.
