<h2>Faith</h2> I hope that you will follow along with my crazy, fun, challenging and adventurous Army-Wife-Life. I pray that you will be encouraged by what God is doing in my life. There is often a lot of uncertainty in the Army lifestyle, and it requires me to have faith and hope in the midst of my constantly changing circumstances. I hope that through sharing my thoughts that I will be an encouragement to you in your own faith journey. As a disciple of Jesus, I am constantly striving to learn and grow in my own walk. My desire is to take what I am learning and disciple others along the way, both virtually and IRL. If you're interested in what being a disciple means to me, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'd love to talk to you about it.
