“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting
on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be
the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle
and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
1 Peter 3:3-4
Welcome to Precious Adornment!
My goal for this blog is to encourage Christian women to desire and develop the true and lasting beauty described in the verse above by exalting Jesus Christ as the Greatest Treasure in life. Our marriages, families, churches, and culture are all in desperate need of strong and godly women whose lives are dedicated to the glory of Jesus Christ alone.
A few personal details… My husband Joseph and I have one precious daughter, Evangelle, whom we brought home from Ethiopia in the spring of 2012. You can read Evangelle’s story on my adoption page. The three of us live in North Carolina, where we share our backyard with two slightly insane labradors, Khaki Chino and Chester Charles.
My favorite activities include baking, cake decorating, reading, and (pitiful but persistent) attempts at gardening. I have served for the past 6 years as a volunteer peer counselor at a local pregnancy care center and am currently pursuing a master’s degree in biblical counseling through the Master’s College in Santa Clarita, California.
As the Lord teaches me more about Himself, I hope He’ll use me to pass His truth on to others through the information shared on this blog. Please enjoy!
