Faith Takes Flight – a new faith inspired blog | Leave a comment

By Ashley Devonish | Category: Family Focus, Surprize Me!, The Journey of Motherhood

Some of you are very familiar with the previous owner of Mom 4 Life, Heather, she retired from the business last year but has gone on to fulfill another passion of hers. I am very proud to share with you her new faith inspired blog and her new adventurous journey. In her very own words, Heather has put together an introduction to her new blog. I hope that you will journey over to the new site and subscribe.

 

Some of you have sat on my couch and listened to my heart as my story has unfolded over time but many of you have not sat face to face with me in a long time (if ever).  Perhaps the last you heard from me was before I retired as owner from Mom 4 Life and slipped silently into obscurity.  In the last year, parts of my heart have been marinating and I’ve begun taking steps of faith toward God’s grand adventure, but other parts have been hiding and I’ve been missing important opportunities.  Recently, I begin flushing out my story with the wielding tools of words and phrases confident that as I look to Jesus, the “author and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:2), He will use it for His glory.

I want to honor your time and let you know up front that no matter what impression the image of me and my family conjures up in your mind, I’m a mess.  I struggle with selfishness and pride.  I’m far too content with the ordinary and I cling to my dust-collecting possessions more tightly than I would like to admit.  I am imperfect, but redeemed as well.  I find encouragement each time I choose to find my reflection in the Savior that made me in His image, rather than the twisted lies of the deceiver.  My story is important because it is part of God’s story and it is my prayer that as we grow together, you will find increased encouragement in the importance of your story as well.

 

I warmly invite you to journey with me over at my blog, Faith Takes Flight . Scroll down to the bottom of the page and work your way up in order to begin at the beginning and you will be caught up in no time.  Feel free to subscribe to my posts via email or follow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/heatherledeboer in order to receive news about when a new post goes live.
