Welcome to Abundant Lives Blog!! We are happy you chose to drop in on us. We want to share our lives with you as we are big supporters of being genuine and real. We feel that if we open our hearts and allow others to see us for who we really are ,that in some small way, others will feel free to be themselves. We live in a world where real is artificial. Do you know what we mean? What we see or think to be real is usually something we know we cannot live up to. Therefore we move through our lives feeling bound up without the liberty to just be ourselves. On this blog, may you see real lives with real weaknesses and genuine strengths. We are ordinary, but extraordinary in God's eyes. Our heart is that we would glorify God through all areas of our lives. We are not perfect, but are being perfected as God transforms us by His beautiful grace.
As you read these blogs, you will be looking into a window of our family life, our marriage, and our hearts desires to see people walk intimately with God and in freedom. We yearn for others to overcome everyday joylessness. Jesus said he came to give us abundant life. Many times we just do not know how to let go and receive all that He has for us. We hope and pray that you will find a little bit of joy and encourgement as you visit here from time to time. And may you be encouraged to know you are never alone on the voyage of this sea called Life.
Leaping Hearts Ministries
We are in the initial stages of a new ministry called Leaping Hearts Ministries. This is a three fold vision to COURAGE,COMPASSION, and CONQUEST. We are called to courageously leap out with Christ's compassion to be vessels of restoration to the heart of the individual , to the heart of the marriage and to the heart of the family. Our purpose is to conquer the breakdown of this present generation and future generations with God's energy and passion for the preservation and redemption of precious lives as well as for the overall unity of the church worldwide.
