I’m a single woman, who lives and works in the suburbs of Washington, DC. I was born and raised in the Bible Belt, in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. I grew up in the 1980’s, in a Christian home, and in a mostly Christian community.
After college, I moved to the East Coast and within a year, found myself on Capitol Hill. The first half of my professional career was mostly in and around politics, which I had always considered to be my path. After a series of ups and downs, I ended up in a totally different field, non-profit workforce education. I never would have guessed my current occupation, but after more than half a decade, I can’t complain.
After a few years of spiritual mediocrity, I have felt the Spirit of God calling me back into a more committed Christian life. Everywhere I turn, I find books, scriptures, lectures and other blogs on holiness and radical Christian living.
It’s a challenging time to be a Christian, and often it seems that our influence and light is getting pushed farther and farther away from the town square. I believe that the best way to affect a positive change is for individual Christians to commit to holy living, the kind of holy living that cannot be ignored.
I don’t proclaim to have answers for everyone. I’m just and ordinary girl following and extraordinary God. My goal is to chronicle my journey in the hopes that it may encourage or inspire others to join me on the quest to live an unsullied life.
About this blog
This blog is about one christian’s journey. I want to be the change I seek in this world. Rather than preach morality or religion, my aim is to strive toward personal unsullied holiness. The following quote says it best:
“We put it as our most sober judgment that the great need of the church in this and all ages is men of such commanding faith, of such unsullied holiness, of such marked spiritual vigor and consuming zeal, that their prayers, faith, lives and ministries will be of such a radical and aggressive form as to work spiritual revolutions which will form eras in individual and church life.”
