a life that Jesus calls us to live.
I am a retired collegiate athlete and have found myself incredibly multi-passionate. I am wildly known for loving cookie dough more than cookies… you may find that evidence in the few cookies that actually get to come out of my oven. I am such a sucker for knee deep coffee-house conversations, every single dog on this side of heaven, maple doughnuts, and moments of sunshine. Simply put, I am a girl with untamed freckles and a heart that fervently desires Jesus, and I absolutely love bringing laughter, fun, and joy to others. We are on this journey together, and all I want is for the words on these pages to connect to your heart and make an impact, no matter how physically far apart we are.
Divine Sunshine came to life when God kept gently pressing on my purpose to write, and put myself into the world to spread the good news on how to live a more fulfilling life. The craziest thing is I am actually deaf, with a cochlear implant. Being deaf comes with its challenges in communicating and learning the English language. I can’t tell you how many times I have absolutely failed and botched English papers in grade school. That's a story of its own to tell someday. Writing for grades in school usually landed me a giant red F, or D until I had to figure it all out. 🙂 Yet my incredible family and close friends kept telling me that I had a gift in writing, and to keep at it. Funny how the Lord works right?
In Exodus 4:11, The Lord says “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight to see or makes them blind? Is it not I, said the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” (NIV)
God has put it in my heart to start a blog and a community of girls to gather and live a life that glorifies our Lord. To pour out our joy in all seasons of life. I diligently tried to shy away & shake off God’s command to start
The Divine Sunshine.
I tried to sneak away from God’s persistent calling, telling me to start writing and be open enough to allow others to read my words that He has scripted upon my heart. God wins and I don’t want to know a life without His guidance and teachings. So here we are….
I invite you to learn more about the meaning behind
The Divine Sunshine:
Holy, heavenly, immaculate, angelic, mystic
A source of cheer, brightness & radiance
Are you wanting to live a more fulfilled life?
Let God’s divine ways bring more sunshine into your life.
That's my intentionality behind everything here at Divine Sunshine...whether it is uplifting encouragement, biblical teachings, DIY projects, relationship/friendship advice, funny conversations, embarrassing dance videos, wild adventures, spontaneous recipes, or finding the best products for my people. I pray for a community of gals who yearn to be better disciples, friends, hosts, sisters, wives, girlfriends, and mommas in every space of this mundane world. I invite you to tag along, for we are daughters of God & He wants us to let our sunshine radiate for others to see. So lift up your favorite drink (coffee, chai, or tall freshly squeezed orange juicy juice for me) and let's fulfill our hearts in heavenly & divine ways!
As I humbly like to say often:
“I am the world’s nobody, but I am somebody of God’s Kingdom.”
Let the sun shine brighter than ever. Cheers to you my sweet friend!!!
