About Me

I am a Christian wife, a mother of four - three of which are college graduates, sister, a tech consultant who loves life, fashion, shoes, running and inspiring othersAn anomaly - I like to have fun but am very clear on who I am and whose I am. I can be the life of the party or very quiet; I usually have a lot to say so this blog is a means of expressing some of those thoughts, all from a Christian perspective.

My brother died in 2005 of scleroderma aka connective tissue disease. I am from a large family, and it was the first time any of us had experienced death so close to home. I saw each of us go through various stages of grief, but for me, it was better to write than talk about it. This traumatic event was what birthed this blog. After a couple of posts, I realized that writing is indeed cathartic and have since broadened the scope of this blog. It's not about death, it's about living and living to your fullest; the only way to do so is through Christ.

I take my faith seriously as it is intertwined in everything I do. One of the things one of my children told me is that she doesn't understand why Christians don't talk about certain things. I don't either, so I write about everything but always from a Godly perspective.

It is my prayer that you are encouraged as I share my thoughts with you. I can be found online on Facebook, InstagramTwitter, and Pinterest. I can also be reached via email at nylse.esahc@gmail.com.

My Statement of Faith

I believe in the Holy Scriptures – The Bible as initially given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

I believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons – The Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

I believe that Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh. I believe in His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His Personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1, Matthew 1:18, 25)

I believe in Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:16, John 5:24)

I believe in the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 14:15-26)

I believe in the Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ. (Philippians 2:1-4)

I believe in the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life; they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

I believe in Creation and that we are all created in God’s image. Following Christ’s example, I believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity, and respect. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21)

  3. Hi Nylse! I found a link to your blog while commenting on another blog. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I lost my father 28 years ago at the age of 7. Although very young, I remember that day very vividly.
    I liked the question your child asked. I've often asked that same question. I believe it's because of the way we've been conditioned. I know I was taught, "What goes on in this house, stays in this house." I believe transparency is what brings people together. I can relate more to realness. Besides, the devil would love for us to believe we're alone. Scripture tells us there's nothing new under the sun. We all go through some of the same things... Kudos to you for writing about those things that others are often too afraid to address. I'm looking forward to following along with your blog.

  4. Oh my goodness beautiful sister in Christ! Just reading the "About Me," section makes me want to follow your blog. I think I will go sign up, when I finish this comment........ How wonderful that out of pain and grief, this blog to encourage was born.
