When Will and I started this blog together, we weren’t sure what to expect! We hoped to compose something that is nurturing, and took our first steps with a sense of wonder.

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”

(Isaiah 55:12)

Our Gentle Light is all about finding little joys in every day life. We’re based in the beautiful state of Maryland, where we first met. Will is steady and introspective, while I am whimsical and sensitive. I am so thankful to have someone in my life who is so caring and bright! Even as life continues to change, we will always be there for each other.

Our source of strength through all of our days is the love and grace of God. We find reassurance in His word, and guidance in His way.

Here at Our Gentle Light, we love sharing the blessings in life that bring us solace. Faith, visual art, poetry, wellness and tea-making are all topics that we love to write about! I first learned about herbal tea-making from my mother.

When I was a kid, my mother planted lots of herbs to grow in our garden. She had parsley, oregano, basil, thyme… but my favorite herb was the mint! Fresh picked mint has such a beautiful scent.

I have fond memories of my siblings and I drinking mint tea together. The steam from our cups rose and warmed our faces. It is wonderful to see good things as they grow into fruition. It is a reminder to us of the goodness that the Lord provides, today and every day.

In addition to tea-making, Will and I enjoy literature! We are both pretty introverted, and don’t mind spending hours with something to read, write or compose. The beautiful thing about reading and writing is that one is able to paint pictures through written words. You will find poetry and prose throughout this webpage, to soothe the soul and to share joy.

Sometimes, when my words fall short, a paint brush in hand can help. Collage-making is a lot of fun as well! There are so many good ways for us to spend our time in life. These simple joys remind us that life is a gift; every moment counts!

Life-Giving Resources

We love sharing simple joys. ~ View our free how-to guides, art prints, journal templates and so much more!

Wholesome activities play a good part in one’s over-all wellness. In our walk with Christ, each moment is realized as a precious gift, to be spent with care. Though joy can sometimes be fleeting, we are sustained by His hope along the way.

May you go forth in song, today and every day. ~ Today and every day, may you be surrounded by a network of people who appreciate you for who you are.

“People can like you just the way you are, by just you being yourself.”
