In the last year Tim and I have been interested in becoming more involved with our church
and becoming closer to God as a family. Mariners offers an in-depth "bible study" experience of sorts
that 100's of people are joining and being wonderfully transformed and finding their purpose.

We took this big leap and signed up for Rooted and will be attending the 11 week experience that has been described as intense and life changing.

Last night was our first meeting. We were put into a group of about 18 and we are all married couples.
The 2 leaders told us about what we will be doing and how we will all become so close and fall in love with the people in our group because we will all learn so much about each other and be vulnerable in front of one another.

I'm terrified.

Some of the things that we will be doing are:

-Serving the community

-3 hours of prayer where we have to pray out loud. (This is the most frightening part for me. I can't even pray aloud in front of Tim let alone 18 others).

-Sharing our testimony with non-believers. Also very scary for me. I don't have a testimony. I have never heard God and I don't know what my purpose is. I'm really hoping that by the end I will have the answers.

It all seems very intense, and will take a lot of dedication for the 11 weeks.

I'm nervous, anxious, and scared but I feel like if I can do this I can do anything and what better person to do it for than God?


  1. Thats so awesome! good luck with that im sure it will be an amazing experience!

  2. Praying for you and can't wait to hear your journey the next 11 weeks!
