Welcome to Leaning on His Arms!

I'm Niki. I love reading, the beach, good food (especially cheese), travelling, and time with my friends. But more importantly, I love Jesus, God's Word, and my precious little family.

Here's the truth: I don't always know what that looks like. You know, "leaning on His arms".  But under God's blanket of grace, I am TRYING.

It's not easy for me to lean on anyone for anything.  When I was younger, it drove my mom crazy that I rarely needed her for anything.  In relationships, I have always been the care "giver," not the care "taker".  I'm an engineer, so I like to research, analyze (OK over-analyze), and solve problems.  To. A. Fault.  I have never left a lot of room for someone to help me.

In these last few years, the Lord has been trying to show me that I can't do this, all of this, and do it WELL, on my own.  I don't want to get burnt out and suffocated by the challenges that I face.  I want to thrive in this life I've been given and rest in the arms of the One who gave it to me, for His glory.

Please join me as I figure out what it looks like to lean on His arms through motherhood, being in a spiritually unequal marriage, trying to stay fit and healthy, cultivating godly friendships, working full time, and battling secondary infertility.

Deuteronomy 33:27  The eternal God is a dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms; And He drove out the enemy from before you, And said, 'Destroy!'
