Hi all! My name, is Katie Graham. Not sure what has brought you here but I’m honored you would even read this far 😉
The main thing you will see and learn about me is that I desperately need Jesus. I am constantly overwhelmed by Gods love for me, especially considering what a mess I am! I hope if you gain anything from this blog it would be a greater understanding of Gods love and redemption through an individual who has fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) I’m so grateful for all He has done and continues to do in and around me.
When I was born God entrusted me to the best parents in the whole universe! (I may be slightly bias here.) I grew up in a Christian family of 5 and my father also happens to be a pastor of a wonderful church in Lutz, Fl. My parents, though imperfect like the rest of us, set an incredible example of what it means to love God, family, people ect. Skipping over most of my juvenile (and somewhat embarrassing) life stories, I met my husband when I was a young 15-year-old gal. We fumbled through dating and made it to the alter when I was 19, decided to have some kiddos, because all I wanted to be was a wife and mother, and possibly join a bowling league. I know God planted this deep strong desire in my heart to begin building a family at a young age and I am so grateful he did.
I had Micaila just after I turned 20 and then Ryann before I turned 22. Busy couple huh! No time for bowling there! 😉
We are now establishing our growing family in Georgia, after living pretty much our entire lives in Florida. Moving away from our families has been a catalyst in my growth in Christ. I love my family but I am getting to know God more intimately and learning to rely on him alone. I believe had we not moved this may not have flourished. God works mysteriously, oh how I know this to be true. 🙂
Since moving here in 2010 we’ve had another child, Caleb, we’ve served children in foster care, we’ve moved… again and we’ve become owners of a Papa Johns franchise. God is constantly surprising, molding, and humbling us with his mysterious and sovereign ways.
My hope and desire is to honor Him with this life He has given me and this precious family He’s blessed me with. And this blog…. well it’s just gonna keep track of this crazy, wonderful, a lot of times messy, life of the Graham Family. =)
