pearls & grace

Many of you might already be familiar with Sibi.
If not, its my absolute pleasure to introduce her to you

Sibi's blog, Pearls and Grace is without a doubt
the most encouraging, tender blog i've visited

let me share sibi's words ~~
"My passion for those three things allowed me to give birth to Pearls and Grace. I thought if I could encourage even one -this blog was worth my time. If even one gets the revelation knowledge of who she is and how much He loves her then this blog is worth my time. If even one woman turns her heart back toward Him again- then it's worth it. If even one would be inspired or encouraged - then it's worth it. I never dreamed that it would actually happen. I just so desperately wanted to share what I have learned so that others would have a source of encouragement. I also wanted to share what He has done in my life. It is really something.
Most would never believe the adversity that I have lived through. I am full of gratitude for it.
You will see that for yourself while visiting here. I write from the heart. My prayer is that you would find hope, encouragement and inspiration here but most importantly that you would
find Him.
You are His Pearl.....walk in that truth."

i felt an instant kindred connection with Sibi

i found myself sharing some of my tender secrets knowing that she would not judge me or condemn me

she's just like that....

i was humbled when sibi asked if she could do an interview with me. i know many of you are familiar with my story so you might just want to pass over that entry, however i strongly encourage you to drop in for a visit with Sibi.

i promise you will leave feeling the touch of His hand on your heart.

Sibi, i am honored to call you my friend

& of these days , we're meeting up in Seaside!!

I have followed Sibi for a while, she has brought me to tears on more than one occasion! I was so glad to see you over there! Such a nice interview, you both are very inspiring and full of grace. (All of these beach photos are really making me excited for Spring Break...wink!)

I read it - and am so moved by it - so precious are you two, both such lovers of Christ and it radiates out your pores.

Of course you two would be amazing friends - cut from the same fabulous cloth. White linen, I'm sure ;)

Sibi is a gift from above. I am where I am today because of her. I found her blog in Nov 08 and life has not been the same. I loved her interview with you. I'm going to her next Pearl Event, maybe we can meet there and listen to her testimony.

Love to you and thank you for spreading the word of our Precious Pearl Sibi!

Lissa said...

You both have beautiful blogs with beautiful family photos by the sea. I can see how you two could be soul mates. That top picture on her blog of your family is so gorgeous! I would love to get one of my family like that one day.

Dearest Paige,

Tears. I heart Paige Knudsen.

You are such a blessing. Thank you for such kind and encouraging words. Like honey to my soul.......

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share your story with others. I pray that the sights and sounds and glory of your testimony will create a beautiful ripple effect throughout the blog world.

May He be glorified.....

Love and Light,

What a beautiful interview!

My absolute favorite part: "Why didn't I turn from God? How could I?"

I think a while ago I mentioned my dad died out of nowhere 2 1/2 years ago or so. My church did a series on why crappy stuff happens to "good people" (is there such a thing?) and asked me to write something... AND talk in a video. Yikes. I MAY post what I wrote on my blog... maybe. :) Bottom line: I resonate with a lot of what you said. God is SO good!

Felicia said...

What a wonderful interview. I can see why you would both be drawn to each other. Beautiful women of God!

Jerri said...

Loved your interview and I want to come to Seaside!! You are both such wonderful amazing women!
