Hi, I'm Maddie. Welcome to Forever His!

Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet - I am so thankful you've stopped by.

I'm a twenty something who is married to my amazing husband Mark who is a pastor at our local church. I have two incredible children - Jackson (age 3) and Marlowe (age 1). When I'm not with my babies I work as a wedding planner and adore my job!

I mostly blog about what God is teaching me in hope that it encourages you/challenges you in some way. I want this space to be a place to talk about real life and real things. You'll also find posts about marriage, sexual purity and other 'hot topics' people may not be talking about in the church, yet we will talk about them here.

This blog started in December 2010 when I decided to head to South Africa to do missions work for a year. I thought I would be a full time missionary overseas and having a blog to keep friends and family updated was the right thing to do. After finishing my one year term I decided overseas missions wasn't where God was calling me. The Lord has given me a heart for missions but has tweaked it giving me a heart to reach the lost here in North America, not overseas. You can read more about my journey here, here and here.

Once back in Canada, I didn't think my life was interesting to post online anymore. I struggled with what to say and if anyone would want to read my boring university life. After talking with a bunch of people I decided to stop blogging and took a break- you can read more about that here.

Yet, here I am typing my about page! I kept reading Godly blogs and was so encouraged and challenged with what God was teaching me through these online connections. I love the online community blogging brings and being able to encourage other women, even if we don't live in the same town. So I started blogging again and I have no intention of ever stopping. I love it and love reflecting on what God is doing in my life and around the world.

I'm so thankful you've stopped by. I love this online community of women not ashamed of the gospel and would honestly love to hear from you!
