About

For 10 years of my life, I didn’t even believe in Jesus.  Now all I want to do is serve Him.

You found this site somehow (I’m grateful that you did, by the way), and you’ve read a few posts.  Now, you want to know why I am here, what I have to say, and who I am.

You’ll totally get me if you are

  • a woman
  • a mom
  • a wife
  • a Christ-follower
  • or someone searching for God

Fellas, don’t turn away yet!  Notice I have Christ-follower or someone searching for God listed there, so this site isn’t just for women.  I have some readers who are guys, and I appreciate knowing you’re there as well.  There is something here for you, too.

I said I didn’t believe in Jesus for 10 years of my life, and that’s true, but that all began to change around the time my husband and I got married in 2004.  I could no longer stand the conviction and began seeking Him around the time my son was born in 2009.  This blog chronicles that journey, but it is so much more.

Ann Voscamp said, “We read so we know we aren’t alone.”  And that is exactly what I am doing here – reading and writing so I know I am not alone, but more importantly, so YOU know YOU are not alone.

Welcome to Servant Girl Stories

Servant Girl Stories directs you to God.  I am honest and vulnerable here.  I write about life as a believer.  I serve God and my readers by pointing to God and by glorifying Him through my writing.  The stories I write will show you who God is.  They’ll help you feel closer to Him.  You’ll be uplifted and encouraged.  You’ll feel connected – to me, to other readers, and to God.

What you’ll read here are stories written by one of God’s servant girls who is being open, honest, and vulnerable about life, motherhood, marriage, and following Christ.

I have walked the journey I’m writing about, or I am introducing you to someone who has (see my feature series Portrait of a Servant Girl).  You’ll read about that 10 years I mentioned earlier.  I was wayward.  I was a prodigal.  But, God uses even our waywardness, and even in that, He brought me back to Himself and made my faith strong.

On this blog, you’ll read about my faith-journey (the “testimony” part where I talk about how I met Jesus and came to live my life for Him as well as the walk I am on with Him today).  Other topics include parenting, marriage, finances, devotions, and reviews of books, movie, or music that will point you to Jesus.  I also write an occasional feature series called Portrait of a Servant Girl where I highlight other Christian women and their stories.  Hopefully, you’ll see the humor and the lessons in a series I recently finished called A #parentingfail – Part 1-4.

Sometimes I have a plan for something I want to write about and other times, I just wait on the Spirit to move me and show me what to do.  I always try to wait on the Lord and let Him show me what someone needs to read about Him.

My Faith-Journey

I’ve known Christ my whole life but only really began to walk with Him around 2009.  I enjoyed writing even as a little girl; it has always been a passion.  The conviction to blog began several years ago, but I fought it until May 2015.  At that point, I began to research how Christians should blog.  I felt like I had something to say, but I had no idea how or even if Christians should blog.  Boy, did I learn A LOT!  The first article on Servant Girl Stories posted on October 5, 2017.

Who is this servant girl?

I am a native North Carolinian currently living in Monroe with my husband and our two children.  I love being southern, and I love my family.  I love Jesus and want to glorify Him in all I do.

Where do you go from here?

Well, you keep reading, of course!  If you’re new, please start by reading my testimony.  (My very first post starting in October 2017 – you can find it in the sidebar on the right side of the screen).  I want you to truly understand where I come from, and these were the first of my posts, meant to introduce my faith journey to my readers.  Start from the bottom to read in order.  I know there are a lot, but I’ve been around a while, so there’s a lot to talk about to show you what God has done 🙂

Please contact me.  Introduce yourself.  I’d love to hear from you.  It’s great to connect and to know who is here with me.
