I’ve been a church girl my whole life—and a “good” church girl at that.
And although I’d heard the Gospel many times, my walk with Christ was dominated by spiritual check boxes and to-do lists. It always felt like there was so much space between God and I, and it was up to me to close the gap through good deeds and of course--more check boxes.
Four years ago, the Lord showed me that I was not in alignment with the Gospel; I was actually in rebellion against it, because you cannot receive God’s love or grace when you do not think you need it. And that’s where I was—convinced my own hard work could close the chasm between God and I.
So here I am, a recovering legalist learning to kick off my “shoes” of striving and run wild, barefoot, and free in this crazy thing called grace. This space is for you to do the same: to rediscover the truth about Jesus, to find freedom in the simple Gospel, and to experience peace in the reality that it is Jesus alone who saves, keeps, and renews us.
