Hello! I’m Alesha, a Christian 20-something who is married to the man of her dreams and soon-to-be mommy to a sweet baby boy. I was incredibly blessed to grow up in a Christian home and watch my parents love and follow Jesus through the ups and downs of life with six kids.
I married my high school sweetheart right out of college, and then, 15 months later, we moved from one corner of the United States to the other to help start Redemption Church in Delray Beach, Florida. I love iced coffee, books, sunshine, the ocean, the color pink, long conversations with friends, teaching, and writing. My passion is reminding women to consistently and intentionally point their hearts toward Jesus in the midst of the day-to-day of life.
About The Blog
I know what it's like to live life just barely making it emotionally, just going through the motions.
I know what it's like to feel caught in the cycle of life, feel like it's all just pointless and can’t be controlled.
I know what it's like to do things with passion, but to never slow down to see if I'm doing the right things with passion.
I know what it's like to listen to the lies of fear and worry and anxiety and stress till I feel utterly broken.
And I've learned that we don't have to live that way.
We have the truth of God's word to combat these traps of stress, of apathy, of anxiety, of pointless living. And I've caught by these things so often, that I’ve realized…I need to preach the truth of God's word to my heart daily, hourly, and minute-by-minute.
This blog is not a commentary on my day-to-day life. I may not be struggling with the thing I am addressing the day I write about it. But I have felt all these things and I have been in all the struggling, vulnerable places that I write about and from. The truths I’m speaking here I have preached to my own heart and I will continue to preach to myself daily.
I want to equip you to preach to your own heart as well.
I want to equip you to speak the truth of God's Word into your own heart and life in order to keep you from falling into the trap of your own mind.
Without constant redirection and constant focus refocusing, our minds will wander. Keeping our minds focused on Truth requires intention and repetition. I hope that my blog is one piece of your battle, one place you can come to for reminders of truth to combat the lies and fears of life with.
My Pastor said once...
“Choices eventually create habits,
that become your character,
which is who you are.”
I love that! But I think it goes a step further. I would say...
Your thoughts become beliefs.
Beliefs determine your choices.
Choices eventually create habits.
Habits form your character…and character is who you are.
When you think something over and over, you begin to believe it. This blog is about speaking the truth of God’s Word into our hearts and minds…over and over and over again, and then letting that truth transform who we are.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Let’s work to keep our minds and subsequently our hearts and lives focused on the truth found in Jesus Christ.
