I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


nothing is wasted :: guest post

I can’t remember how I first started following Endless Pursuit … I think it might’ve been on Instagram? Guess it doesn’t really matter, the point is, they’re my people! “How so,” you might wonder? Read this from their About page and you’ll get the picture!

God has not abandoned or forgotten about you. Nor is it in His will for you to be sick. That is why we challenge you to rise up with Endless Pursuit as we declare the promises of God over our situations. We exist to speak hope into the sick: make them catalysts, dream weavers, humbleness makers, and joy fillers. Circumstances will not enslave us, rather in defiance we will speak out healing and faith. God is our provider.

Anyway. When Ryan asked if I’d consider being a guest contributor, I was honored. When I was 5 months late in getting him my first post, I was impressed with his patience! :)

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might remember that I’d recently had a couple of my girls at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester? And if you don’t follow me on social media … well … I recently had a couple of my girls at Mayo. :)

It was Taylor primarily who’d had a seemingly sudden onset of serious health issues and I wanted her seen by experts. And because we were going, I decided to bring Hunter along and have her seen for a couple of things she’s been dealing with as well.

Hunter’s issues ended up minor, but Taylor’s not so much. We found out she’s got an autoimmune, chronic disease she’ll deal with the rest of her life. And while I’m thankful we were able to get an answer to what’s going on, I hate that she’ll now face this suckiness.

And so … in the midst of my writer’s block – while trying to keep good on my promise to Ryan and get my post in – God whispered some hope in my direction and I shared those thoughts over at Endless Pursuit a couple of weeks ago.

If you’re facing something today, or just in need of a little hope or encouragement, I’d love for you to join me over there.

    Aww, Tracie . . . I always wondered if that might be what Tay had going on. :( It does suck, but if you consider she’s already been dealing with it for awhile now, it’s probably a good thing to know definitively what it is. Now she can heal and learn how to manage it. Holler if you need anything, ok? Love you and all of those girls so much!!

    I am so sorry for both you and Tay – but she has an awesome role model to help her deal with this. It is SO hard to watch our children deal with hurt and sickness. I know with her faith and your help, she will get through this. Your a great mom Tracie to all your girls, keep up the faith and good work. Love and miss you all!

    P.S. Nice to see you back on the blog, I have missed it! :)

  4. I’m so sorry, sweet friend. Of course, we don’t want our children to ever have to experience anything like this and yet . . . Somehow it will be part of her story and God will use it. She is going to do amazing things for the kingdom – just like her mama.

    So wishing I could see you, sweet friend!

    Hi mate, I’ve just read your blog post and there’s lots of great info which is great, however I’ve got to let you know your site was way down in the rankings on Google. I’ve been using this plugin for WordPress which has really helped me drive more traffic to my own blog – WP Authority Links Plugin which you can get at http://bit.ly/1zu5uRT
