About Me

I’ve always loved to write.  I asked for a Thesaurus for Christmas one year in high school (geek, I know).  For years I would think, “One day I’ll write.  One day I’ll write a blog, a book, or something that people will read.”

“One day” came at the end of 2012.  As I was drinking my coffee and reading my Bible I distinctly heard the Holy Spirit say to me, “I want you to write.  For me.  On Facebook.”

Uuhhhh, hold up there, Jesus.  I mean, putting MY thoughts on Facebook wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I was asking Him for direction for my writing.  But guess what?  “‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord.” (Isaiah 55:8).  So with a humble and obedient heart I began to write most every day whatever the Lord told me to share. He guides my thoughts and my words.  He has put godly women in my life to encourage, strengthen and yes – gently correct me at times.  I’m grateful for them all.

So what you will read on my blog is whatever God puts on my heart. Sometimes funny, sometimes gut wrenching – you just never know.  But I know this – God has been glorified in what I’ve posted and that’s really all that matters.

I live in Auburn, Alabama (WAR EAGLE!) with my husband and two children – oldest in college, the youngest in high school. We have a cat and a dog who are best friends and will appear in my posts occasionally.

I hope you will be entertained, enlightened and maybe even inspired by reading Christian Momma Meditations.

 

Blessings!

  1. I loved you message and hold it so dear to my heart. We sent Taylor my son to UNT last year. It was a big adjustment as we really enjoy him first off and 2 nd we were empty nesters. Taylor lost his dad 3 weeks ago and I host a husband of 25 years ago. I found him in our bedroom on the floor already gone from a heart attack. The wounds and grief are so raw but we must go on and with Gods grace we will. You never know how much I needed those beautiful words. Thank you for writing them. Dannie Knight mom of Taylor Knighr

    • Dannie – thank you for your post. I will not imagine to know the grief you are going through, but I will encourage you to cling to the truth you know – God is real, God is with you, God will never leave you and God loves you. I hope you have a strong Christian support group surrounding you right now – but just know that I, along with many other readers, will be praying for your strength and for your son over the weeks to come.
      God bless-
      Leigh
