Hi. I’m Megan. I’m glad you’re here, because, honestly? Abiding in Christ – living fully and deeply out of our union with Him – is a community endeavor. Persevering is a work done best alongside others.
So, this blog is a lot for me, because I am in constant need of reminders to look back at His faithfulness. But, its for you too, friend, if you struggle to get you 2 year old out of the house with his clothes on and not hitting his brother over the head, if you have daily chronic pain, if loved ones have been taken from you far sooner than ever imagined, a recent diagnosis has changed everything, you’re wondering if and when God will answer that prayer, you’re filled with worry and fear over the next big decision to make, or you’re joyfully following the Lord with a heart full of peace…
Underlying this for me currently, is a diagnosis of MS, but I, just like you, get to experience the pain, the wavering of hope, AND being brought into deeper fellowship with The One who grows my roots deep into His abundant love in a variety of circumstances that want to throw me over the edge of my supposed self-sufficiency.
This blog was inspired out of my grabbing hold of and clinging for dear life to the truth that The Lord is good. And and we get to see that exponentially moreso during pain and suffering. Underlying this for me currently, is a diagnosis of MS, but I, just like you, get to experience the pain, the wavering of hope, AND being brought into deeper fellowship with The One who grows my roots deep into His abundant love.
This is for US. I pray that you may be filled full, not by my mediocre words and wonderings, but by The Word of The Lord.
Come, taste and see with me, that He. Is. Good. It’s better together, friends.
Want to know the basics?
I’m married to a stud named Ryan, who is a pastor, and is my pastor and loves his Kentucky roots.
We have 4 kiddos, the youngest and oldest being right at 5 years apart. That was a wild few years there! In the middle of those years, we planted a church (New City Church in Lawrenceville, GA), I had continued strange health problems, and was eventually diagnosed with MS. Oh, and, I homeschool the older two. This all sounds a little crazy as I type it and I need you reassure you I walk in faith and fear and trembling, with each step of all of these faith producing areas the Lord has led me into.
I love hiking to really high heights, rock climbing, being on the lake, and wake-boarding (all of which never drew my attention before I had MS, so these are new and thrilling adventures for me!), red wine, reading a lot of books for myself and to my kids, and currently watching The Office or Park and Rec on repeat…because it makes me belly laugh.
