Yeah…tired, worn-out you, looking for a place to find rest for your soul?
I understand. I get it. Me too. Rest is what I seek. Finding and living out my truest self is my destiny.
You are welcome here. Just as you are. There is no mask wearing, only real, honest, raw, emotions. Being your truest self is something not only God desires, but what He celebrates. Perhaps you would allow my brokenness to sit next to yours as we encourage each other to stand on God’s truth, even if it doesn’t make sense. Even if it’s hard. Even if it’s painful. Because together we will find rest for our weary, worn-out souls in the mess of life. Grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair and let’s get to know each other.
I’m Lea Turner. I have a husband, and we’ve got us, five kids. Three grew in my tummy and two in our hearts. My house is loud and crazy. Moved to Mississippi making me a northern girl stuck in a southern world.
Silence is rare. Laundry is never caught up. Relationships over to-do-list and grace over guilt. Rest over stress. Being naturally authentic over wearing a religious mask. Deep conversations over a cup of hot coffee brings refreshment to my soul.
So what’s your story? Drop me an email.
I have been writing on the blog since 2015. It’s pretty raw, and to be honest, it’s pretty venerable. It’s the place I wrestle and dream.
I didn’t start out having a passion to minister to women through writing and speaking. I graduated in 2001 from Messiah College with a nursing degree. I worked five years as a cardiac nurse until I had my second child and quit to stay home. At that time God blessed me with an excellent mentor, Donna, who saw a gifting in me, a gift to teach women. She nudged me out of my comfort zone, and I began to teach Bible studies and share at our women’s retreats.
In the year 2010, God began to do something new in my heart. Our church began a series in Ephesians, and it was like I was reading it for the first time. What were this power and love Paul talked about?
“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7 NIV)
As I searched my spiritual senses were awaken to God’s unending love. I committed my whole life to follow His love. Wherever He leads, I will go. Read my full testimony here.
I also write for Daughters of the Deep. One day a book will be published for His glory.
I keep writing. I keep seeking. I keep following and obeying, giving Him the glory along the way.
I expect we shall be good friends. Consider subscribing to my weekly newsletter where I share my heart further. It’s free.
