While writing, journaling and reflecting on paper have always been a thing for me, starting this blog was a response to a work God was doing within me. I was coming from a place of isolation, loneliness, self-sufficiency and living amidst walls that shut out the world from what God was working in me. This blog was to be the html script for the victories, for the sharp and polished, for the struggles, the failures. Here was he intersection of my life and he cross of Chris. Here we could trace God's hand as He does whatever God does best as we move in obedience.

God was moving me to a place of living authentically, being real, being vulnerable, being open, connecting with other people and their stories and helping them connect with God. This blog has become the place I share my life and what God is speaking to me and doing in me as a woman, daughter, sister, wife, mother, hopeful scholar. It has become the place others can connect with my struggles, especially as a Christian who is being made holy through her daily experiences.

At first I thought this would be a women's blog, then a mom blog - but it has turned out to be much more. What it remains is a tool for the Holy Spirit to minister to me and conequently to others. What I remain is a tool, with a keyboard, a cup of tea and Wi-Fi, to share my life, encourage and support, challenge, equip and inspire you on towards godliness, towards growth, towards fruitfulness, towards faithfulness, towards obedience. We are God's field, God's building, and I pray that together we will build this spiritual house with what can withstand the fire.

Like in  Ephesians 4:11-16, I pray this blog will equip God's people for the work of ministry, it will build the body of Christ. I pray here you get to fortify your faith through hearing the word of God. I hope here you connect to the God who loves you more than you will ever understand. I pray here you join #TeamWisdom as the word of God sharpens us and we sharpen one another. Our goal as in Ephesians is unity in our faith and in knowing Christ, maturity, speaking the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, full of love.

... kwa kusudi la kuwakamilisha watakatifu, hata kazi ya huduma itendeke, hata mwili wa Kristo ujengwe hata na sisi sote tutakapoufikia umoja wa imani na kumfahamu sana Mwana wa Mungu, hata kuwa mtu mkamilifu, hata kufika kwenye cheo cha kimo cha utimilifu wa Kristo; ili tusiwe tena watoto wachanga, tukitupwa huku na huku, na kuchukuliwa na kila upepo wa elimu, kwa hila ya watu, kwa ujanja, tukizifuata njia za udanganyifu. Lakini tuishike kweli katika upendo na kukua hata tumfikie yeye katika yote, yeye aliye kichwa, Kristo.
