hello, I'm Mindy!
5 facts about me
- I've been married to my college sweetheart, Chris for 5 years and we live in Wauwatosa, WI with the sweetest cat, Finn.
- I am passionate about relationships, encouraging one another, and speaking the truth in love.
- I love words.
- Being authentic, vulnerable and encouraging others they're not alone is really important to me.
- I believe that true joy, peace, and freedom comes from surrendering control to Jesus, and making our lives all about Him.
My goal on Iovemin is to write words that encourage your heart and point you towards the joy, peace and freedom that comes from knowing Jesus.
So what's with the name lovemin?
The heart behind the name is a little play on words:
- a play on the idea of "love, Mindy" – I want you to feel loved and encouraged when you leave.
- a play on my nickname of Min – my name is Mindy, but those close to me often refer to me as Min… meaning I'll get personal and be real with you.
- a play on sounding out the name as "love ‘em in" – as in, ‘love them in’ to the Kingdom of God.
The last point is the one that sold me on the name. My life changed when I realized that life is all about Jesus. He is the reason I live the way I do and the reason that I write. I hope that here on lovemin you see more of Jesus and less of me.
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ."
