Who am I?
Thank you for hopping onto my blog! Before jumping into my main content, I thought I should introduce myself to those of you who may not know me, and reintroduce myself to everyone else!
First and foremost, I am a forgiven daughter of the One True King, covered in grace, lavished in love, and immersed in mercy. It wasn’t an easy path that brought me to this identity, and if I’m being honest, I still often struggle with it. You see, I don’t deserve this identity. It is by grace that I am able to assume this role. Jesus took on my sin, sacrificed it on the cross with himself, then overcame death in order for me to be His Father’s daughter.
Secondly, I am Erica Jean Baker (previously Grogg)! I was married to the love of my life by my father-in-law on my grandparents’ 57th anniversary (December 31st, 2017) in my parent’s living room while wearing my grandmother’s wedding dress! (Did you catch all of that? Haha!) Joshua has shown me how to love our Savior in a way I believe I am only able to fully see through marriage. He points me to Christ daily, and when I’m struggling, he helps me fight through the battle. He shows me how to rely on Christ, thus putting away my perceived need for control of my life. Marriage is very much something God led me to (I was determined to be single for life, whoops!), yet marrying Joshua is the best thing I have ever done in this life second only to deciding to follow Christ.
Finally, I am a newly established blogger who desires to share my passions and loves with you, my readers. I am interested in all things having to do with Jesus and our body. My “Daily Life” section of this blog is here to keep you in the loop as to who I am and what I’m doing, along with some random life happenings that might not fit into the other categories of this blog.
Anyhoo, thank you for popping in, please sign up for my weekly email (HERE) which will include links to my previous week’s posts, and I look forward to growing in God with you!
