Welcome to my new blog! God has laid it on my heart to start a devotional journal type blog on here to share my thoughts with others and have others share their thoughts as well…so feel free to comment and share your thoughts or prayer requests!

I guess you’re wondering (or maybe not?) how the idea came to me…well I was taking a nap one day (I have a 6 month old—I’m allowed to nap!) and I had a dream about an uplifting real-life devotional journal type blog. The name came in my dream, along with the names explanation (which will come in the next few posts).

When I woke up, I wasn’t sure if God wanted me to do the website or if it was one of those crazy creative dreams that comes from lack of sleep. Well I followed my heart and pulled out my bible and found bible verses to go along with what the name and explanations meant to me. I think God knew I was going to need an “escape” to share what is going on in my life, so he gave me this.

Two days after I had the dream about the blog, we found out my step-dad has chronic myelogenous leukemia. This came as a complete shock to my whole family, and it really hit me hard because my step-dad has kind of been my rock ever since I have known him. So now I am starting my “escape” and I hope you all enjoy it and find it helpful as well!

Oh, and you may be asking what “Shake it for the Lord” means? Well, you’ll have to wait for my next post to find out the answer to that one!!


  1. I am so sorry to hear about your step dad. I pray that this blog is a way that God will talk to and thru you. Blessings! Heather

  2. Looking forward to reading what comes next. Remember...we serve the Great Physician!! Love you, Sis!
