Faith Dancing

I am a first and foremost a follower of Jesus. He came to earth to make a way for men to become right with God. Through his death, our sins were paid for, and God offers eternal life to all who place their trust in what Jesus has done. That's the message of John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I am a first and foremost a follower of Jesus. He came to earth to make a way for men to become right with God. Through his death, our sins were paid for, and God offers eternal life to all who place their trust in what Jesus has done. That's the message of John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

In late 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Life as you know it stops dead in that moment. There is a faith decision to be made for a Christ follower. Do I really trust God, even if he allows something like cancer? During the last year, over and over and over, I've seen His hand in my life. I've found that when you choose to trust God, He gives peace and joy.

Jill Briscoe says that peace is faith resting and joy is faith dancing. It's possible to dance your way through cancer treatment, to rest in Him in perfect peace.

I am a pastor's wife from Nebraska and mother to 5 girls and 1 boy, ages 15-29. I home school youngest and teach piano to 20 students. Music is one of my passions as is women's ministries at our church.

To tell the truth, I did not join any teams until about a month ago. I really rely mostly on the friendships that I developed during those first several months. Blogging helps me a lot as well. I am finding now that the teams I have joined (5% Challenge and BLC) are pushing me a little harder than I would do on my own, so they have definitely helped as well!

Thank you for the friend add! I've added you back! We have a lot in common! I homeschooled my 2 oldest children and taught piano during that time so I could stay home with them! I look forward to getting to know you better and reaching our goals together on Spark People!!!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
