Welcome, I’m so thankful that you’re here. I’m going to share a little about myself, and I hope you will share a little about yourself as well, as I would love to connect with you and learn a little about you.
For the past couple years, the blog was called “Journeying Outside My Box – an adventure in living boldly”. Recently, God changed that focus to be sharing more of the things I’m learning as I continue to follow Him. He’s leading me on a journey through understanding redemption and how deeply redemption – His Redemption – can impact our lives. As a result, I have changed the title of the blog to reflect that. This is now a space for Sharing Redemption’s Stories. You might find personal stories, devotionals, inspirational posts or even stories from other writers on occasion. But the content will continue to be focused on the importance of God’s redemption in our lives – in my life.
I’m Rebekah, I grew up as a missionary kid (MK) and I think that’s where my love of stories came from originally. My dad would share Bible stories in such a way that anyone could easily understand. The God of the Bible was never far away for me – my parents filled my heart with the knowledge of a loving Savior who wanted to spend life with me. And not just this life, but eternal life. I came to know Christ at a very young age and my relationship with Him developed and grew deeper over the years. My husband and I live in the eastern US, relatively near Philadelphia, PA. We are richly blessed by the children God has given us. We have two boys and a girl; our boys are 14 and 10, and our daughter is 8. My prayer, in parenting them, is that we are nurturing their hearts to want more of God and less of this world.
I love coffee – nothing’s better first thing in the morning. I also like tea on occasion, so if that’s your preferred drink, we’ll still get along well!
I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate.
I would love to find a reader in Antarctica so that I can say my blog has been viewed in all 7 continents. 🙂
I do not have a “most favorite” passage of the Bible, despite being a Christian for almost all my life.
I love thunderstorms!
Even though I lived in Africa for 4 years while my parents were missionaries, I would still eat a bowl of white rice and a (good!) mango every day, if I could.
I listen to 4-6 hours of piano practice almost every day as all 3 of our kids take piano lessons. Our oldest hopes to continue his piano in college (much too soon for this mama’s liking!) so he works very hard at his music.
I’m the only non-brown-eyed person in my little family.
I would love to go on a mission trip again someday; for now, this blog will do!
I hope and pray that this is a space where you are filled up with God’s love. It’s all about Him. I don’t want you to leave this space knowing more of me, but rather I pray you know more of God through what is shared here.
