I first chose the handle “echoinghim” when I was a teenager and was getting my very first email account over ten years ago! This name has stuck with me over the last decade and seemed fitting for my website’s name as it reminds me of both my goal and His promise to me that I will be conformed to the likeness of Jesus (Romans 8:29) and that I will be made like Him (1 John 3:2).
Even as Jesus said that He only did what He saw the Father doing (John 5:19), I want to be His echo, doing what He would do, saying what He would say, praying what He would pray. I want to “be [an imitator] of God…and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (Ephesians 5:1-2)
This blog comes to you from a Christian Bridal End-Times paradigm, which basically just means that it is from the perspective of a woman who is intensely in love with her heavenly Bridegroom Jesus Christ and believes He is returning to the earth in the very near future!
As for me, I’m married to the most wonderful man in the world – the love of my life, Joe – with a beautiful son Justice (2008), daughter Rayah (2009), and son Eden (2012).
Besides being a full-time mom, I work part-time from home as a computer programmer and am involved part-time at Sanctuary House of Prayer (SHOP). I volunteer there as a worship leader, musician and singer during various prayer meetings at SHOP, and then when I’m not serving in one of those capacities, I join my fellow intercessors in prayer or studying the Bible.
This blog is a place for me to record the things that I am learning as I dig into the scriptures, what the Lord teaches me in the place of prayer, as well as lessons and stories from my everyday life as a wife and mother – whether about a new recipe I tried, my husband, my children, a good book I read, traveling, friends, family, etc.
