My name is Alicia, and I am joyfully married to my husband, Gabriel. I was raised in the church, but I can say that I truly became a disciple of Christ during my college years. I attended Spelman College in Atlanta, GA and graduated with the Class of 2007. From there, I attended the University of Delaware for a year to work on a Masters degree, but God called me to leave half way through the program. So I returned to Atlanta and began working at Spelman College with their residence life program for 3 years. In 2011, I left Spelman and moved to Colorado one week before I married my husband, Gabriel (or Gabe as I call him), and I began another Masters program at Colorado State University. Well, apparently God had some plans for us because I got pregnant a month after we married. So, making the necessary adjustments, we handled our business (i.e. my husband finished his PhD, was offered a couple of jobs, and we finally settled down in Louisiana), and we had our daughter in March 2012. I left my Masters program, obviously, and we all moved to Louisiana. After being here for almost a year, it appears that God is moving us yet again….next stop, Charleston, SC!!!!
God has continuously grown me up in the faith, purifying my walk through various means. And over the past years, He has seen fit to bring me into marriage and motherhood for His purposes. I believe these are His purposes because it was never my intention to get married so early (it felt early to me) and start motherhood so quickly (I wanted to pursue my career for a while). So I started this blog at the request of some friends who wanted to know more about my journey being a wife and mother in the Lord. I appreciate you stopping by to check me out, and I pray that you are encouraged in the Lord by what you find here. God bless!
Oh, and now I’m contributing occasionally on another site: Credo Covenant, I encourage you to check them out!
