To be honest, I have no idea how to begin this whole blogging thing or if anyone other than my mother is ever going to read anything I post. (Hi Mom!) But for the past few months I’ve had this desire to write about life’s rough patches—i.e., wilderness experiences, dry seasons, valleys, or whatever the church kids are calling them these days. Personally, I prefer the term dances in the desert.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t enjoy going through these experiences any more than the next girl (or guy), but there is a lot to be said about walking through a difficult season in life and the growth that often results. Especially when you walk through that season leaning on the strength of Jesus Christ. So I hope you’ll join me on this journey, as I take a closer look at this beautiful place that is the wilderness and the source of joy and hope that traveling through this place can bring.

He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.” –Deuteronomy 32:10
