About

You’re in the right place to study the Word with me as we find out how much He loves you. How often He thinks of you and what kind of thoughts He thinks. There will be blogs where we will explore these things together. We will pursue living a holy and blameless life and find out what that means today. We will spend time studying His word and at times, I will share my past if it would be beneficial to give hope. But it’s more than a story of abuse, it’s about a love for God and desire to serve Him in everything. It’s about His grace. It’s all about Him, the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Hi, I’m Cindy, a Canadian gal living in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada, or so our vehicle license plate tagline says.

I love the Lord and reading and studying His Word. Since God has given me many second chances I want to let you know that what He has done for me, He will do for you as well.

Through second chances, He has shown me His love. Through His forgiveness, He has shown me how to forgive others. Through His mercy, He has shown me how to be merciful. Through His grace, He has shown me what it is like to receive grace.

While married to my first husband, I served the Lord in children’s ministry, women’s ministry, served as a church Board member and am currently the Women’s Ministry Leader plus I lead a women’s Bible Study that I call DIG (Deep in God). Until my retirement, I  worked full time as an Application Analyst at our hospital in a job that I loved. In fact, if I close my eyes, I can still see the Meditech screens and how they were built!

My son Dustin and I in 2011.

I’ve led a complicated life but now I am married to Steven who also loves the Lord and between us, we have three sons, my oldest is Dustin who is 28 years old. Steven’s oldest is Jason, 27 years old and Jeffrey, 25 years. The two oldest sons live in Ontario while Jeffrey lives in British Columbia near us.

The most important thing that I want you to know is, though I was an abused wife for 29 years, God was with me every step of the way. He never left me, He was always faithful to me. And then a second chance happened and I discovered that God still loves me even though I was the one to leave the marriage. It was a very difficult time for me which you can read about in Beauty from Ashes.

But God!

Those two words are amazing! But God showered upon me His love, which I needed so badly, His forgiveness, which I needed just as badly and His mercy, yes, I also needed that! He showed me over and over again how much He loved me and still loves me. It’s a message that I will be sharing now with the focus always on Him!

I want you to know that what God has done for me, He will do for you!

My goal is to show you the love and mercy of God through the written Word of God. Come back often!
