Personal Update: Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Hello, friends! It has been awhile since I’ve blogged. But if you’re subscribed to my mailing list, you know I haven’t disappeared. I’ve had a busy spring and summer and now that things are starting to slow back down again, it’s time for an update and to start getting back into the swing of things!

I wrote another book

Initially, I took a break from blogging to write my next book—which, Lord willing, will be out before Thanksgiving. I had a shorter deadline this time around and a lot more studying to do, so all my mental and writing energy was put towards that. I’m not sharing specifics about it just yet, but I will hint that it’s a type of book that I haven’t done before… can you guess? You’ll have to wait and see!

Once again, God taught me so much throughout the writing process. This time around, I dealt with a lot more insecurities, but the Scripture I was writing about spoke into my personal fears and anxieties. God was having me apply what I was learning as I wrote, which was a humbling experience. I am so grateful for how His Word continually informs and transforms us.

We moved

Right around the time I finished writing my book, Luke and I found a house! We moved a little further out from Minneapolis than we already were and are still pretty close to church and family. Our 2-bedroom apartment was our home for about 6 years, so it has been bittersweet to say goodbye and start new somewhere else. We are loving all the extra space, particularly in the kitchen and having separate offices. 

We started really intentionally praying about our house just over a year ago. And it has been amazing to see how God has answered so many of those prayers. There were specific prayers that felt impossible, especially considering the current state of the housing market, but our God is Lord over it all. Nothing is impossible for Him! Ultimately, we just prayed for His will to be done. And His faithfulness through prayer confirmed to us we are where He wants us to be in this season of our lives.

New content coming soon

Now that I’m through all the writing and moving, I am slowly getting back into a new routine. I’m excited to get back to blogging and already have some ideas for future posts. I hope you’ll join me back here for more new content!
