Hi! My name is Brianna Lambert, and I’m so glad you stopped by. I am a mom of three little ones. Currently I’m learning to navigate homeschool while trying to keep up on the beautiful everyday crazy. I love to laugh, talk, and sometimes sit and watch our pet ducks do silly things.
I love to work out the truths God is teaching me through writing, and I pray it can be used to encourage others. I am grateful to write for Gospel-Centered Discipleship, as well as various other internet publications, but honestly- my main ministry joy is being able to serve in my local church. These local, small, and ordinary relationships are worth far more than any distant blogger we might follow. If you need help finding a local church, let me know, and if you’d like to see my statement of faith you can click here.
My husband David is my greatest friend and sweetest gift. He works as an engineer, but has always loved photography. In each picture he works to capture the beauty God displays throughout creation. The photography on my own blog posts is all captured by David, and together, we hope to use it all to echo the beauty of our great Lord.
If you are looking for a place to start here are some articles that shed a little background about us:
- This piece tells the story of the infection I suffered after the birth of our first child, and the ways it revealed the goodness of the God who allows pain.
- This series on the blog is one of my favorite things to talk about- the power of the small and the ordinary.
- The Face in the Mirror is some thoughts on 9 years of marriage, and the work of the Spirit (another one of my favorite things to write about).
- This piece at The Gospel Coalition is what keeps me writing- because it’s a gift I get to do.
WHY LOOKING TO THE HARVEST?
We live out in the country surrounded by corn and bean fields, and each year I can see how much work the farmers put into their fields with the hope of producing a good harvest. As my husband and I strive to raise our children and steward the opportunities God has given us, I find such similarities in our own lives and in the promises found in Galatians-
“For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:8-9
I have often held onto verse nine as encouragement for the hope ahead, but all my toil is worth nothing if it is in my own strength. If I’m honest, most of my days I try to toil and strive by my own flesh and my own plans. It’s my prayer that each day I will, instead, draw near to Christ through the spirit, so that my work is done by His strength, His power, and by His grace alone. It’s only then that I know all this work is not in vain, and I can look toward the beautiful harvest He will produce.
I hope you will join me along the way!
