Hey there! My name is Becky, welcome to my little slice of the Internet.
The title of this blog, “The Deepest Water” comes from a quote by Elisabeth Elliot that I love dearly: “The deepest lessons come out of the deepest waters.” Amen and amen.
I have found this to be profoundly true in my life. Over the past 7 years, I have gone through a variety of difficult things which have come to shape who I am today. From infertility to brain surgery, I have walked some lonely paths through the wilderness. Jesus Christ has been my constant companion and continues to hold me up though the difficult times. It is in these dark nights and deep waters that I have learned some the most impactful lessons about who I am, who God is and how to continue journeying along faithfully.
As a Christian woman without children, my life doesn’t fit a conventional mold anymore and I am slowly learning that this is ok (and even at times fun to be set apart as a unique part of God’s Kingdom!). I am beginning to find my voice as a childless not-by-choice Christian woman who does things just a little bit differently than the world around me.
Writing is how I process, it’s how I make sense of life and piece things together. In this blog you’ll my find deep thoughts about living counter-culturally, recaps of recent travels and road trips, the occasional beauty product review (I’m obsessed!) and ramblings about random things like photography, theology, cooking and recipes, marriage, books and current events. I’m so glad you’re here!
A few random truths about me:
-Beautiful Colorado is where I call home
-Jesus is my compass, my true North
-My husband David and I have been married for 10 years!
-I am a professional photographer
-I’m a Seminary student, studying Christian Formation & Soul Care
-I have 2 precious kitties, Miles & Davis
-The mountains are my home. Camping, backpacking, hiking…I love it all!
