Welcome! Let’s get acquainted!
I am first a daughter of God, saved by His grace and by faith alone. I am also a wife, a mother to now three precious children, a homeschool teacher, a nurse, and an amateur writer.
A daily devotional time of praying and reading God’s Word is my priority, although there is a continuous struggle to get up in the mornings, prior to my children being awake. This has become especially challenging with a new baby in our family.
Jesus brought me out of a continuous cycle of wretchedness and depravity and all I want to do is worship Him forever!
In my spare time I love reading books about Christian apologetics. I also enjoy composing my own music on the baby grand piano given to me by my husband. However, most of my time is spent loving on and raising our kiddos. Being a mom is my primary mission field and I take this God-given responsibility very seriously.
Before I met my dear and amazing husband, I lived with, (I want to say “My Big Fat Russian Family”), my family of ten. We immigrated to the US in 1993 from a small country called Georgia, south of Russia. I was twelve and had a much more difficult time learning English than my younger siblings. Today many people still notice an accent, which is not going anywhere, I guess.
Growing up in a new country had its own difficulties and issues. Russian literature and writing were my favorite subjects in the school I left, and I began keeping a diary. First, the diaries were written in Russian and gradually I switched over to English. I still have these valuable possessions and hope to give them to my daughters when they are old enough, God willing. That is if they would want them. ?
These diary entries are stories of a girl struggling to find her place in this world. Just another girl with hopes and shattered dreams that were only known to a journal and to the One who created her. So many mistakes… So many disappointments… So much despair… If only that girl had known Jesus the way I know Him now!
Renewed and Transformed… God gave me a heart for the lost. I see so many people in need of redemption… I see so many young people struggling as I have struggled… I see so many fellow Christian believers losing the fire as I have lost it before… I want to get to know them and I hope these pages will serve one purpose: May God use my weakness to show His greatness. May He use these stories of a renewed and transformed heart for His glory.
