My name is Kelly Merrill. I am on the path of sanctification through the grace of God. Each day I am reminded that I am in desperate need of a Savior. I cannot live the holy life that God has called me to without the constant help of the Holy Spirit. Each day I need to crucify myself with Jesus and choose to follow him.
The Holy Spirit is always speaking to me. Sometimes I listen and obey, but he is always gracious and forgiving. He picks me up out of the dust that I have thrown myself in, and points me in the right direction.
At the same time, I am a saint. I am forgiven. I am being made perfect. And, one day, I will arrive at heaven and be given a new body free of the sinful nature and spend eternity worshipping God in the perfect home that he has prepared for me.
I am a country/small town girl who now lives in Menomonie, WI with my husband and son. I enjoy cooking, being outside, reading, playing with my son, and exploring new places.
I am passionate about living out the gospel in my own life and encouraging others to do the same.
Specifically, I live out the gospel by being a godly wife and mother. Family is so important to God and sadly has always been under major attack around the world by his enemy.
My purpose for this blog is to encourage you with the lessons God teaches me as I journey through this life. I hope that as I grow in my faith, and pass on these lessons, that you will be inspired to live your life fully for the gospel. You have a part to play in God’s story, and I am excited to help you grow.
