I’m so excited that we have this little space to connect!
Hi, I’m Amy Ruth Petersen. I’m a mom of 3 awesome boys and a pastor’s wife to a wonderful man. At an early age, I understood my need for someone to save me from my sins and accepted Jesus to meet that need for me.
Since then, I’ve been on a constant learning curve with ups and downs and sideways. And, I have felt the weight of spiritual weariness and apathy and the exhilaration of sweet, intimate, daily fellowship with Jesus.
I’ve been mentoring women since I was in high school. My favorite thing is to encourage and inspire women to LOVE God’s Word and to LIVE it authentically, powerfully, completely, and beautifully.
My heart beats for the woman who is a Christian and knows what she should do. But, she just can’t muster up the want-to. She is tired and weary and apathetic to the things of God. She feels guilty to even admit those things, but it is what it is. Her bookshelves are full with bible studies and devotionals and journals of years gone by, but her heart is barren, empty, dry.
She doesn’t know what to do. The Bible seems archaic and dusty. She can’t imagine how it could have any relevancy into her own life (into her worry, fear, bitterness, lack of purpose, insecurity, even her housework!). She knows God’s word is a good thing to know but it doesn’t make sense to her.
If this is you or someone you know… I hear you, I see you, I give you hug. I’ve been in that space, and it stinks.
Let’s step into God’s word together (yet never leaving our own crazy reality) and learn how to connect His truth to our everyday lives. Let’s discover the beauty and power and relevancy of the Bible to us beautiful women living in the 21st century!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:2-4, NIV
I look forward to it,
