My name is Lisha and I am a woman of faith. I love Christ and endeavor to serve him daily. I am married with two elementary aged daughters. I teach 4th grade in a public school, and after over 20 years in education, I still get excited when a child’s face lights up because he finally “got it”. However, I do find teaching to be an astronomical challenge, and I have days when I wonder if I can actually pull it off.
My husband lives with chronic illness. He suffers from End Stage Renal Disease and had a kidney transplant in March of 1998. He has a whole litany of health issues which I won’t delve into here, but that affect our day-to-day lives. We married in June of 1995 and almost 6 months to the day later, he was in the hospital, and we were told that his kidneys had failed. Our dreams of how life would be, shattered before our eyes, and we’ve had to search for a new normal. We’ve done a lot of adjusting and readjusting over the years, but God’s grace has been there for us, and he has been our strength.
I love writing and this blog serves as an outlet for the pen and paper itch that I so often feel. I hope that my writing becomes arms of encouragement that wrap around hurting hearts. This is also a place for me to share my life with others. Perhaps something I say will light a flame of hope, challenge you, or at least put an occasional smile on your face. I hope that you will visit often and leave a comment for me from time to time so I know you’re out there. Happy reading!
