Surrender Devotionals

Because surrender is serenity.

When I started this blog in September of 2008 it was intended to be a journal of our adoption experience and precious moments with my family. It is that. But the Lord has also compelled me to share bits of my own spiritual growth from time to time. If you landed on this site in an effort to seek growth in your relationship with God, or a greater depth of surrender, and perhaps you’d rather not wade through our adoption stories and a myriad of photos of my kids, đŸ™‚ this page is for you. Below are links to various posts I’ve written from a heart that longs to know God deeper, always deeper. I am, as we all are, a work in progress, but He is a perfect and faithful God. May you see HIM in some of these devotional-style writings…
