I’m the wife of Jason, mommy to Eternity Joy and Elijah Nash, and a lover of God. I labor in prayer at the House of Prayer Evansville as a member of the Body of Christ in Evansville, Indiana. I believe in God’s desire to answer the cries of His people on behalf of our city, region, nation, and nations of the earth.
As I encounter the Lord, I write as a means to “shout from the rooftops” what He speaks in my ear.
This blog is devoted to the journey of seeking the heart of God; to position our heart to live for the eternal glory of knowing Him and being known by Him. My hope is that it will inspire you to live in wholehearted abandon to the Lord and increase your love of the Scriptures through fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit.
My desire to “live for another age” came in a season where He gripped my heart with these two Scriptures; spurring me on to pursue Him:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might…24 but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these I delight.” Jer. 9:23-24
“For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” 1 Cor. 2:11-12
In all of His holiness, power, wisdom and glory, God looks for a heart that wants to love Him and know Him. He doesn’t seek the rich, for the beautiful or most intelligent– just those who say yes to knowing Him. He’s looking for those who will love Him for who He is. 2 Chronicles 16:9 says He actually looks for those who will be loyal to Him. I absolutely love this truth about God. Rather than having a certain standard we must meet in order to know Him, God puts all of humanity on an equal playing field and says, “Who wants to take the time to hear My heart? Will you value knowing Me above all else?” No matter who we are or where we are at in life, we can confidently draw near to this magnificent Creator, in the knowledge that He wants us to understand Him, and even freely gives us His Spirit so that we can know Him personally.
When we choose to seek Him above all else, it moves His heart. He’s after a relationship of wholehearted love from anyone who is willing. It is my desire to know the depths of the love of Christ, and to respond to that love with all that I am, in every season of my life– that I would live for another age when I’ll see Him face to face.
Since 2008, the Lord really began pulling at my heart to come after Him, and I’ve felt called to give myself to intercession, worship, and the study of Scripture. From the fall of 2009 until the spring of 2015, I lived in Kansas City Missouri where I completed the four year bible school at the International House of Prayer University. In 2010 I met my husband, Jason, who I fell in love with and married in 2011. He also attended the bible school and is called to intercession and preaching. We are on this journey together!
In the March of 2015, we moved to Evansville, Indiana, as the Lord led us to help build the House of Prayer Evansville (HOPE). We lead prayer sets, sing on worship teams, preach and teach at services, help with the children’s ministry, and perform other administrative tasks at HOPE.
Our vision is to:
Pray/Intercede: Live lives of intercession and promote it in the lives of others as intercession is the biblical means of partnering with God to see the transformation of individuals, cities, and nations.
Equip: Equip people to love the truth and grow in the the knowledge of God through sound biblical teaching and exegesis of the Word.
Disciple: Encourage and strengthen the spiritual development of the next generation.
Be Agents of Transformation: Seek the manifest power of God to touch the lives of the broken for physical and spiritual healing/deliverance.

“Our work is to be in such close contact with God that we may have His mind about everything, but we shirk that responsibility by substituting doing for interceding. And yet intercession is the only thing that has no drawbacks, because it keeps our relationship completely open with God.”
What a powerful quote- thanks for sharing!
