My name is Shalom Liddick. I am so glad you are here friend! Although I use this blog for teaching and encouraging women in their faith, it’s primarily a reflection of the lessons I’m learning about God in my every day life. Let me assure you that I stumble every day. I get overwhelmed with chores left undone, children tugging for attention and I too snap at my husband. Every day, I bring my mess to Christ, drink deeply from his love and start again. I’m always learning what it means to live a life of surrender and love. Let us journey together toward a whole life lived freely in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I love Jesus. I am absolutely that girl. I feel so tender toward Him! Everything about Jesus moves me: the way He loved outcasts and messy people. I love the Cross. Simply everything. I often think that if people don't love Jesus, they just don't know Him. He is the standard to which I hold up everything and everyone: theology, behavior, relationships, culture, church. I love Him and I want to be like Him. He is my Superhero. I love writing. Words are my first love, because they matter. They take us to another world when we need to go and bring us home when we need to come back. Whatever you need, words can deliver. I have been a reader and writer my entire life, a love nurtured by my father. I hope to use them for beauty and Jesus. I hope to make them count. I love my readers and our little community. I think about you constantly. I see you in my mind with every word I write. I care about you and what you care about. Your success, heart and soul matters to me. You are always safe with me. You can love Jesus or not. You can go to church or not. You can believe or not or maybe not or maybe so. You can ask hard questions, and I promise to as well.
Together, we can learn to follow Christ authentically. I hope you’ll join me!
"I pray that Christ may live in your hearts by faith. I pray that you will be filled with love. I pray that you will be able to understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep His love is. I pray that you will know the love of Christ. His love goes beyond anything we can understand. I pray that you will be filled with God Himself."
I hope you will join our Facebook community. Here we discuss topics ranging from books, relationships and family. God has called us to full lives lived freely in His love. Let us challenge each other to good works.
