Hello, friend! Welcome!
At first when I started this blog, I pridefully saw myself with the writing utensil in hand and thought the whimsical feather pen was about me and my writings.
But then, God interrupted those thoughts and reminded me of my main mission- to bring Him glory. It was time to give Him the pen. So I re-created the blog to fit what God was prompting me–that He was the Author no matter the mess. He didn’t create the mess and He would never call some of the trials you or I endured good. Chronic illness that lays you up in bed for years in your twenties, limits your mobility drastically and causes sometimes visible moments of ataxia is not good. But God can and will bring good out of messes like my own and redeem our messy stories. I know anytime I visit a blog, I like to get to know their vision, so you can see ours here, more about me here and our start here page to see some of our favorite articles.
Do you feel like you have a story or post idea to share that fits our vision at Inkblots of Hope? Feel free to pitch us your idea by filling out the contact form…

I regularly write on the topic of the Mommy Wars and the damage they are doing to the church in our day. One of the ways in which the onslaught of the Mommy Wars is wreaking havoc is by causing us to major on the minors, or to harp on and focus our attention primarily...read more
This is a story that was emotional and devastating at the time and it took years to realise the full impact of what had happened, but this is also a story of hope and of God’s sovereignty over all things. I am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to...read more
