My name is Traci. I live in southwest Michigan. Somewhere in a triangular section connecting Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids with all things Lake Michigan. My husband and I parent one daughter. Two dogs, two cat and eleven chickens. That number is always changing, as the farm animal count tends to do. I enjoy watching sports, reading, cooking and all things Bible study. I am a writer.
I grew up on the outskirts of a small town in Missouri. I can trace many things in my childhood that prepared me for now. In a big picture kind of way, that idea encompasses this blog. How we can trace ways that God prepares us our whole life for future endeavors. How, good and bad, what happened to us then matters a whole lot in our faith walk now. He wastes nothing, shows up loud and clear in every area of our lives and only asks that we give Him all the glory.
But I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:24
