I came to know my Savior, Jesus, in 1991. I struggled through childhood, feeling a sense of not belonging. That carried on through teen and adulthood. I was only fifteen when I met my husband. I craved the attention I received from him. We were married two years later and went off on an Army adventure around the world. My husband retired in 2006 here in Nebraska, where we still reside. We have four children each of whom challenge me with their outlook on life, their passions, and their schedules :). We attend Reality Church, formerly known as Shadow Lake Community Church. I attended a women’s retreat in 2009 where Kim Chipman spoke of (and was giving away!) a book called The Divine Mentor, by Wayne Cordeiro. Pastor Cordeiro spoke of an easy method of getting into the Word called “SOAP”.  I started applying this method and soon learned that God was there, speaking to me ……. to me! Kim also hosts a weekly meeting in her home where we can share what God has been showing us in the Word and also where we can encourage each other and do life together. It was an answer to prayer to have girlfriends in my life, and so much more… Spending time with God each morning has brought me closer to Him and is helping me to see myself more as He sees me. I still struggle with feelings of belonging, but I am not walking in this journey alone. God gave me this verse recently: “Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave Him great pleasure!” Ephesians 1:4-5
