Reflections from the Shallow End

So I’m reviving a blog that I started over 9 years ago. The somewhat clever title indicated that my thoughts weren’t that deep, but I started blogging as a therapeutic release of ideas and honestly, some frustration. We’ll see how it goes this time. Feel free to check out the original few posts at I woke up at 3am this morning and this all popped back into my head. Maybe it’ll be the title of my first self-published, non best-selling book. Time will tell.

I am 9 months into my new role with Makarios ( and love everything about it. God has put me right where I need to be. A place where I’ve found my strengths, confidence and passion again. A refreshing season. God is doing mighty things in the Dominican Republic, where the ripple effect is far-reaching as lives are being transformed by the Gospel. Empowerment is a real thing.

I am reminded in 1 Peter 5 that God will RESTORE, CONFIRM, STRENGTHEN and ESTABLISH me for His glory. Restoration is underway. Confirmation is key to staying focused. Strength comes from Him and Him alone. And He establishes my feet and work for His purposes. What a blessing to be used by a gracious God.

More to come…
