A Displaced Hope

Posted by Kelsey Adams on

This blog was originally written April 7, 2017, but has been updated and reposted to share the heart behind the My Only Hope Collection at Etch Life. My husband Tim and I have lived in Liberty, MO now for almost 5 years.  When we moved to Liberty, our now oldest, Wynndal (Wynn) was 6 months old.  It was a major life transition for us, as I’d just lost my job, Tim just started a new job (he’s an Associate Pastor at our church Liberty Christian Fellowship), and I was a new mom in a town where I knew NO ONE....

She always applied this one brown lipstick all in one swipe. I imagine she was stressed out (rightfully so) having 4 kids at home. She probably put it on because it made her feel beautiful. And oh my, did she look beautiful. My mom loves God. She sits in her bed every morning and hangs out with the Lord like it’s her best friend...

Everything Beautiful in its Time

Posted by Etch Life on

Twelve years ago, you would not have found me serving diligently in ministry, like you would today. On any given night, you would have found me with the party crowd, taking shots, dancing on bars and living a loosely wild life filled with shallow things and self-destruction. The road to ruin for me was paved…
