My name is Kim Wahl and this is my blog. I wouldn’t actually call myself a writer. But I am a talker. Ask anyone who knows me; since childhood I’ve never had a shortage of words. I even talked in my sleep. So I don’t really look at blogging as writing but more like electronic talking, which is right up my alley.
And generally I love to talk about Jesus. So that’s what this blog will be about – Jesus. I want to talk about living the authentic life of a Jesus follower. I want to talk about living with Him as the center of my existence. About living a life that looks more like Him and less like Kim.
I want to talk about connecting with God as my loving Abba who adores me as His baby girl. About crawling up in His lap to hear the sweet words He would whisper to my soul.
I want to talk about the struggle of surrender and submission. I want to talk about putting my life in His hands in absolute trust. I want to talk about the difficulties of faith when nothing makes sense.
I want to talk about the process. About enjoying the process. About not rushing the process. About embracing the process.
And as we talk, I’m sure the main characters of my life will emerge. So here’s the scoop on them. I’ve been married to the love of my life, Bill, for 30 years. He and I pastor at the most amazing church in the world, The River Church in Fort Gratiot, Michigan. We have three wonderful children, Gabrielle, Danielle and Stefan. Gabrielle is married to Scott and they have given us our first grandchild, Josiah. Danielle is married to Dylan and they have given us Judah. I’m sure you’ll hear more about them as we chat.
As for me: I’m from Louisiana and have a deep appreciation for fried okra and beignets. I love to read. And I’m a communicator; I love to teach Biblical truths and principles for practical everyday living. I teach regularly at The River on both Sundays and during the week, and guest speak at other events as well. So this talking thing does come in handy.
If you’d like to join the conversation, please leave a comment after the blog! I look forward to visiting with you.
