I am Prudence (aka Prudy) a 30-something writer living in the metropolis of Arizona. Married to a man who constantly steals my heart. Shawn and I have been married for 11 years and I fall more in love with with him each dawning of sun and moon. Marriage is far beyond my expectations – it’s so much more fantastic then I ever dreamed it would be. We are owned by two Chihuahuas – Lengua & Zeus, whose basic demands are pets, bellies, dinner, treats, kisses…repeat.
I grew up amidst towering Pine Trees, brambles of Manzanita bushes, and dirt roads, a city girl in a tiny town.
In 2006/2007 Shawn and I started seeing God change our perspectives on Him and church and life. We saw our focuses being changed from ourselves to those far from Him. It’s been a long journey and one that isn’t over yet…and perhaps hopefully never will be. Through these changes He’s given me a heart for those in poverty and the orphan. In particular, a desperate heart for India. One day my feet will walk her soil (I expect an all out ugly cry that day). I dream to work in orphan care & adoption advocacy one day.
What I share here is my heart. I write my life, my experiences, ups & downs and how God is working in and changing me. I am currently participating in OneWord365, a community of bloggers, twitters, & non-bloggers alike who choose one word to focus on during the year. This year my word is fly. I share my current quest in finding my wings and taking flight after a year of hope.
I am learning to embrace an artistic side I never knew I had. Through paints, #secretmessages, & other various collected elements I paint out my life in my art journal. I’ve found that in applying paint to paper healing occurs in my soul.
In January 2013 I went to Moldova with Children’s HopeChest to tell Moldova’s stories and love on some beautiful young women who are victims of human trafficking. I share those stories and follow-up from my time here.
I also blog for Compassion International, as well as sponsor a beautiful young lady.
If you have any questions or just want to say hello I’d be thrilled to hear from you.
