Welcome to St Matthew’s blog! I’m Lauren, Pastor Jensen’s wife, stay at home mother of four, praise team leader, and encouraging writer. I’m sure you’ll see a much fuller list of what that all entails as our blog progresses!
This world of ours gets busier by the day. With schedules spinning like a top, you just pray and hold on tight, hoping your grip holds and you aren’t hurtled into the unknown or an emotional breakdown.
So why take the time out of that busyness to stop and read? To stop here of all places?
Because writing and reading to the glory of God are some of the oldest practices on earth, and here is just the place to be encouraged.
"And when they had read it, they rejoiced because of its encouragement."-Acts 15:31
To encourage is to instill courage, and who couldn’t use more of that? When relationships are under strain; when jobs are tough and discouraging; when things are going well and you need a boost- open the Bible. Then open our blog. While no substitute for the reading of the Word, it is our prayer for you dear readers that this would be a place where you can find encouragement and wisdom for your daily life.
