I’m Home!

Well, I’m home!

Back in Tulsa, Oklahoma: the place I was born & raised, the place my family and friends live, the place I know inside & out, but somehow it feels very different.


My friend Kaci said it well, “once you say yes to the Lord you don’t really go back.”

When I said yes to leave home, I didn’t realize that the life I was leaving I would never really have back. And it dawned on me that I wasn’t going ‘back’ home but I moving foreword and it just happened to be home.


It’s been an interesting few weeks, and I’m not sure I’ve fully reconciled all the ways I’ve changed with my old familiar place here.

But one thing I do know is that the Lord has been so faithful in taking care of me. Even on the loneliest days he has sent people who understand, when I feel lost he has sent me voices of truth, and when I need to celebrate all that he has done he has sent ears to listen to the stories.


Home is another adventure that is unfolding, and I know that for as long as I’m here it will be good, because the Lord is good.

My heart is expectant.
