Brennan Manning once said,
“Define yourself radically as one beloved by God. This is the true self. Every other identity is illusion.”
That’s who I am.
Additionally, I’m a woman with all the usual titles: wife, mother, and grandmother. My family is my greatest treasure in this life.
I’m also a woman who has been carried, by divine intention, through traumatic events that have left me chronically unsure of who I am.
Because things are sometimes shakey inside of me, I fall back, with all my weight, on what I know for certain–what I have come to know through years of struggle:
I am loved by God and I am His.
That truth is the beginning and end of my story!
