When in Rome...
When in Rome…

What if I told you that at one point in my life, I depended on drugs to get through stress, men to find self-worth, and looked for contentment in every wrong place.

Would you believe me?

Now what if I said that God changed the whole trajectory of my life, leaving me clean and sober for over 10 years, beyond happily married with kids, and content with a life to the full.

Would you believe me? Or even more importantly, do you believe a God exists that can and wants to do all of that?

I follow Jesus. Currently that’s in Copenhagen, Denmark. I’m an introvert working in an extroverted career, pessimist learning to be an optimist, extremely dutiful but striving instead to be perfectly faithful.

I have worked as a Social Worker in the states but now currently serve for our church in CPH. I spend most my time talking with people about God, whether or not He exists and, if so, how to have a relationship with Him. These are many of my random thoughts related to my spiritual journey.

I like to explore topics that are light-hearted and happy, such as the joys of being a mother. But I am passionate about topics related to overcoming obstacles and inspiration that help me feel intimate with God. I’ve been on the road to self-destruction and am now learning to deal with mental health issues, mostly derived from my own bad decisions.

It’s almost as if this blog is my journal. I have made it public in hopes that it can help others on their journey. I would love to hear your thoughts so feel free to comment. I’ve had aspirations to write a book. Perhaps I’ll try blogging first.

I think the following verse sums up how I feel:

I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
