Hello! And welcome to Speaking Truth in Love! My name is Stephanie Torrey! I'm so glad you stopped by…
Let me introduce myself and just give you some highlights of who I am and what the purpose of Speaking Truth in Love blog is all about.
First things first, I am a daughter of the King, the true and Living God, Jesus Christ!
I’m happy to be a stay at home/work from home mom for over 10 years! At some point, I’ll share with more on how I managed to do that for so long! I must admit, the whole climbing the career ladder thing is completely lost on me since I left corporate America in 2004 after having my daughter and I’ve never looked back.
I’ve been married to my computer geek/gadget guy for 23 years. My two children William and Rachel are definitely gifts from the Lord and are walking testimonies of God's faithfulness in their own lives. I'll share more of that in future posts as well.
Anyhoo, enough about me…let’s talk about Speaking Truth in Love what I hope you will gain from it.
The one thing God has impressed upon me since my conversion to Christ is knowing TRUTH from error. Until I became born again, I was very confused about God. Not an atheist, probably more agnostic. So my life’s theme has been what Jesus said in John 8:32: and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Speaking Truth In Love is a devotional blog that focuses on Encouragement, Faith & Truth, based on Ephesians 4:15: …but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ.
Speaking Truth In Love strives to be a beacon of light in the darkness of this world by speaking the truth of God’s Word in love and encouraging others, especially women and moms to grow their faith in Christ. With that being said, I hope this blog will help you to:
- Connect with God on a deeper level.
- Strengthen and enhance your relationship with Christ through reading and studying His Word.
- Help you connect the truth of God’s Word to your everyday life, especially through the hard stuff.
- Encourage the enjoyment of reading and studying Scriptures.
To encourage you in all of the above I will offer resources that will help you draw closer to God.
My goal is to first and foremost ENCOURAGE YOU: if you're a mom raising kids, a sister, a young woman who has found herself further away from God than she intended.
This blog is also for YOU, if you're a seeker who is looking for that something or SOMEONE bigger than yourself. My goal is to share the truth of what I've learned over the years during good times and bad.
I pray that what I write and share on this blog will draw YOU into closer fellowship with Jesus Christ whether you have known Him for 50 years, 5 years, or not at all.
What God has shown and taught me through His LOVE for me, I want to share with YOU!
