Naming you blog is a lot of pressure!

Julie encouraged me to start my own blog. Doing this means it has to have a name. I really put a lot of thought into this. I had many ideas filter through my head: 13 going on 40, my inner child wears red, Anal retentive artist...there where more, but those are the highlights. I settled on Overcomer. This is my desire. There are many things in my life that I strive to overcome, from the ridiculous vanity that can plague me, to the deep strongholds that I will not let define or defeat me. I've decided to use the verse from John 16:33.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
I hope to share funny stories, poignant moments, lessons that God is teaching me, and my heart (the good, the bad, and the ugly).
