Welcome! My name is Faith, and I’m grateful you’d take time to consider some of my words here.
I write from Staten Island, NY where I live with my husband and four kids. We worship and serve at Grace Christian Church. Before the babies, I studied for a Certificate in Christian Studies from Westminster Theological Seminary. I work part-time at WTS Books and besides blogging here, write with the team at Reformed Margins.
Writing has always been one way I’ve processed what God was teaching me, and somewhere along the way, I found my words could be of some help to others. So pretty simply, that’s what I hope for here– that what I have to say would, by God’s grace, give grace to fellow seekers of God. Others who, like me, are also learning to walk by faith.
I recently came across these words in one of John Newton’s letters (which, incidentally, were a bit like blogs back then, read and shared publicly). They express my heart for this space:
If my writings have been useful to you, may the Lord have the praise. To administer any comfort to his children is the greatest honor and pleasure I can receive in this life.
So we do not lose heart.
Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.
For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ESV)
