Who Am I?

Who am I?

I am a people person and a homebody.

I eat some form of chocolate several times a day every single day

I am a serious feeler and tear up when other people cry (even when the person crying is on TV).

I'm a twin, a little sister, a sister-in-law, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, and aunt, a wife, and a mom.

I'm passionate, emotional, and a verbal processor.

I struggle with feeling like some days I'm too much, and other days, I'm not enough.

I'm the mom to an almost 14-month-old who is well over half of my height. And I love it.

I am learning to embrace the gifts that God has given me, and am trying to find a way to live them out in my daily life.

I am letting myself admit out loud that my husband and I really want to adopt. I'm terrified to say it out loud for fear that it won't actually happen and I'll be disappointed. But I can't get it out of my heart.

I desire to bring hope, joy, and life to women both in "real life" and online. I still don't totally know how to do that, but I'm going to continue to try because I feel the Lord asking me to.
Who am I?

I am beloved. By my husband, yes - but first by God.

I am forgiven, even though I continue to screw up all the time, every day.

I am imperfect, and I often struggle to change even when I really want to. But I also know that my imperfections are a chance to show those around me the strength love, and power of God. If I do anything good, it's because of Jesus.

I am unashamedly accepted by Jesus. (Which boggles my mind.) When I gave Him my life, His arms were already open, waiting to embrace me as His daughter. And daughters are unconditionally loved by this Dad.

I am living inside of the huge and beautiful story that God has written for all of mankind. And I pray that the minuscule part I play will bring Him glory, will reflect His hope, and display the value that He places on every person on this earth.

  1. "Who are you?" I think you are a woman who most definitely brings joy, hope, and life to the lives of many. I'm sure those in your "real life" can attest to that. Mackenzie, you are both gentle + kind while being unafraid to speak the truth with boldness + love.

    I didn't know you were a twin! I have often wondered what that is like.

    You are deeply loved by the Maker and I'm so glad you share your story!!!

  2. Wonderful post! I really love the section about our imperfections and how they're a chance to show people around us the power of God-so, so true!

  3. i love what you said about your imperfections are a chance to show off the love of God. That is how I always see it to. It allows God to show his glory in my life when ppl see that I am broken and confused but he brings restoration...
    you are beautiful friend...

  4. This is beautiful. Understanding ourselves reveals how truly amazing God's grace and love is, right? Hope you're having a lovely week, Mackenzie!
