Welcome, friends! I am so glad you found your way to our blog! I don’t know if you’re seeking peace or just waiting in line at the bank and needed something to read, but I’m glad you’re here.
I hope in our time together you will be encouraged, learn a little about Jesus, and become a lot more curious about your purpose on this planet.
I struggled for a long time with finding my place, figuring out which seat at the table was mine. I wondered if God really wanted me and if He could ever use such a mess as me.
One thing I have found that I have in common with most of my friends is the constant question, “Am I getting it right?”
“Am I doing more damage than good? Is there something I’m missing? Did I give my kids enough vegetables and Bible study? Am I doing what matters, what’s important?”
I’d be willing to bet you probably feel the same on most days. If so, I hope you come with me and my friends on this journey of working together to figure it out.
Last week you met Stephanie Peace and learned a little about her passion to start a blog. This week I want to tell you a little about me.
My name is Jamie Henderson. I have been following Christ faithfully for about 10 years now. I love Jesus and I know He loves me, but I still struggle. I struggle with a real fear of abandonment. I struggle with control and jealousy. I have body image issues and struggle with making healthy food choices.
I am 40 years old (!!!) and it has been the best year of my life. I became a grandmother this year and he’s perfect. I am blessed to be the god-mother of 3 beautiful and precious children that range in age from one to five. I have two adult children who are in college and still live at home with me and their step-dad, Eric (who is by far the most amazing man I’ve ever met).
I am a member of a thriving and hard-working church, Temple of Selma, NC. I met Stephanie, Vanessa, and Yvette all through different ministries there. I get to work with children from birth to age 12 at Temple. It is my full time job, my passion, and my calling. I can see why Christ died for the Church (capital C). It is my family, my life, really my whole world.
But I didn’t always feel that way. I have been hurt more than once by a church. One of my goals as a writer in this blog is to share my hurts and show you how God has used them for His glory.
I also hope to share in your hurts. I hope to hear from you. I hope to get comments, letters, and e-mails. I hope we can minister to each other on this path. I can’t wait to see what God has in store! See ya Friday!
