Welcome to Rooted and Rejoicing!

Hello! Welcome to Rooted and Rejoicing! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I’m excited you are here! I am wife to Jeff, mom to Emma, Lily, Abe, and Judd, and Iowa friend to many.

I never imagined I would have a blog because the technology stuff scares me. But the idea monopolized my thoughts and God kept nudging me.

Rooted and Rejoicing stems from a dark time in my life where everything seemed topsy-turvy. Just as the wind shoves the tree around and causes its roots to sink deeper into the soil, life’s stormy problems pushed my roots deeper into God’s Word. God faithfully sustained me and still is!

The rejoicing reminds and challenges me to have a joyful heart no matter the circumstance. This is something I am continually working on because complaining characterizes me more than thankfulness.

As blessings and burdens come into our lives, may we hold onto God’s promises and be rooted in Christ. I invite you to continue this journey with me by signing up to receive future emails.
