I'm Becky. I'm a storyteller who writes stories of what God is teaching me about life. I love a good cup of coffee and listening to people’s stories. I pray that you will be encouraged in your walk with God as you read through my stories…the stories of a small town girl deepening her walk with God. ~Becky

Faithful: An Unexpected Journey to Motherhood

Everything was perfect in Becky’s life: a loving husband, a brand new home, and plans to have a baby. Then a doctor told them: “I don’t know if you will ever be able to conceive a child.” In an instant, Becky’s dreams, plans, and optimism were shattered and deep disappointment settled in her soul. In Faithful: An Unexpected Journey to Motherhood, Becky Graham shares her journey as she trusted another Author to write her storyline. By trusting God to write her story—instead of insisting on writing it herself—she saw and experienced God's faithfulness to her. We have all faced detours that threatened to derail us from trusting God. As you read Becky’s brave and vulnerable story, be inspired to embrace the grief that comes with the loss of a dream, overcome your fears when God asks you take leaps of faith, and learn lifelong lessons for staying mentally, physically and spiritually healthy. Your journey may be unexpected, like Becky’s journey, but one thing is for certain: He is always … read more


After publishing the 'Slow to Anger' post, I was contacted by another blogger/speaker to see if she could feature my post on her blog/website.  I was elated!  Then she asked if I had a current photo of myself to go along with my post.  Ummm.... no.  I didn't.  I knew this day would come.  I had to get a current photo of me for the blog.  A photo better than the current blurred photo that I took of myself with my iphone.  I had read about how important an on-line, blogger/speaker 'image' is crucial to how people 'see' you and/or take you serious.  In fact there are articles written about how to project the 'right' image to your reader audience and the importance of 'branding' your image.   So, I knew this day was coming. I'd love to tell you that the excitement of her email matched the excitement of getting my picture taken, but I would be lying.  It was more like the start of an internal panic - I didn't exactly hyperventilate but I wasn't jumping for joy. About 3 weeks earlier I … read more

Slow to Anger

James 1:19 (Bible) "Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry." I have to admit that I'm not always, 'slow to anger' in my everyday life. I find that I can get irritated very easily by small things that can turn my calm, happy demeanor into a three eyed fire breathing beast that is ready to slay anything or anyone near me in the matter of seconds. My response usually doesn't produce any good because it always invites an invitation to the person who is irritating me to mirror my response which always makes my initial irritation with them twice as bad. Can you relate? This past month I've really become aware of this behavior and wondered how or if I could ever change my response not to get angry so fast. I once heard a speaker talk about memorizing verses from A to Z that would bring about greater joy and balance to every one's life. I whole heartily agree with her. I've learned hundreds of verses which have helped me through out my life. She also … read more
