Hi, I’m Shelby Hohsfield
Did you know that belief the size of a mustard seed is enough to move mountains?
”God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” ~Ephesians 2:8-9
I have a colorful religious past and carried around a lot of baggage for far too long. 20 years after leaving the church I discovered who God really is and that He was waiting for me the whole time.
Now, I use the gifts He gave me to share His good news.
God put it on my heart to help you, mama as a new believer to build a relationship with our Creator through learning basic Christian beliefs and exploring your spiritual & creative gifts to make Him known.
It is not about works. You are enough because of His Grace, Truth, Trust, and Love.
Here you will find new strength in Him to do things you never thought possible.
If God is for us, who can be against us?
The hubs, Carl and I met first semester of college in astronomy class. I didn't know his name for two weeks and just referred to him as the cute boy I was going to marry. That was in 2000. We have now been together over half our lives! Our lives are now run by our two teenage kiddos, Mason and McKenna and our zoo we have for a house complete with 2 horses, 9 chickens, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a partridge in a pear tree. We live around the corner from my mom and dad, both work with family and will probably call New Mexico home forever.
If I hadn't been raised Mormon, if I hadn't had all the steps along the way, if I hadn't known what it was like to try to earn my worth every step of the way...
I would have never known true grace.
He was preparing me the whole time to do what He is asking me to do, right now, to further His kingdom- to help you.
I was Mormon in an unconventional Mormon home. I left when I was 18 and spent 20 years lost, searching in all the wrong places. And through one the hardest times in my life I realized one so incredibly important, life changing thing...
...on my own I would never be enough.
I would never be worthy or strong or big enough.
This story wasn't about me...
...this story is about God, what He did for us that we will never earn. He is strong enough, He makes me worthy, He is big enough for me and so much more.
I am forever changed.
And now, I live to know Him and make Him known.
"for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." Philippians 2:13
But God's plans for us are so much bigger than we know.
I've been through a very winding road of faith. I always wondered why God, or in my Godless days, why I had to go through all that confusing stuff.
