Welcome to the Rooted, Grounded Family

Hi, I’m Angela – daughter of the King, co-heir with Christ, wife to a wonderful husband, mom to two amazing girls, medical doctor and natural health enthusiast. Here I blog about the things that I love – my faith, my family, food, and natural living. Join me on my journey and we can encourage each other along the way!

Why the Rooted, Grounded Family?

When I sensed that God was leading me to start a blog, I wondered what to call it. I had a few ideas and tried them out, but they were all either already blogs, or names of songs or businesses. As I prayed about it and asked people for suggestions, I remembered a friend had sent me a scripture, and I went back to read it:

Ephesians 3:14-19 King James Version (KJV)

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

There it was, in verse 17 – rooted and grounded in love. The foundation of our family is Christ and His love, and we want to know and comprehend this love with all the saints, and be filled with all the fullness of God.

At the time of writing, we are preparing to move our family to Malawi as we heed God’s call for us to serve Him there. It seemed fitting that even as it may seem as though we are physically uprooted, moving countries, spiritually we are strengthened by God’s Spirit and rooted in His love no matter where we go or what we are doing.

I pray that you will enjoy this journey with us, and be strengthened as you grow in Christ!
