Hi friend! Welcome to Embrace. So glad you stopped in to meet me!
My name is Jaime. I am inspired by the Creator, in love with my Jed, and mama to our 3 rowdy Redcay’s. I was born a Southern belle, surrounded by the lovely mountains of Virginia.
As a young girl, I found comfort in writing poetry and keeping journals. Much later after a little Bible school, falling in love and marrying my Jed, a season as a pastor’s wife and being gifted two little boys, I started to write again.
I wrote in the form of a blog, updating friends on our journey overseas as international missionaries. It was invigorating to document how God was weaving together his story in a different culture. When we returned to the States, a new idea began to brew. Now, here I am a number of years later, (with another little rowdy Redcay in our lives), filling this space with words of truth.
Currently my family lives in the heart of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where the Amish folks park buggies in the Target parking lot and the people are more reserved than my southern heritage, yet truly kind hearted. We are raising our 3 sons to be world changers and teaching them to share the love of Jesus in the community we call home.
I know what it is to weep in anguish, in the midst of life shattering grief. I have lived through long seasons, with deep awareness, that I cannot take one-more-step, without the strength of His embrace. My writing comes from this vulnerable place, with a conviction that there is power in the word of our testimony. I believe that we disarm the work of the enemy when we testify to God's work in our lives!
It is within His embrace that I encountered the power of the Lord’s transforming love. I long to see you delivered from the chains that are binding you friend and released into a life of freedom that compels you to run this race as a fearless warrior.
Mark 11:23, 24 (The Message)
"Embrace the God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you...that's why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you'll get God's everything."
This Space is devoted to genuine sharing and encouraging teaching. I hope you will choose to embrace this very moment and the One who longs to hold you!
