"Broken things can become new things. Broken things can become redeemed things, broken things can become resurrected things, broken things can become breaking free things." Ann Voskamp
What is a name? A name is an identifier. A name ties you to another person; it gives a sense of self. I've chosen after much thought and prayer to begin 2018 with my maiden name and Adelaide and I will begin our future together as Shea and Adelaide Sparks. We’ve chosen to not look back at the past, not to treat my previous marriage as a mistake, but to look towards our future. We fell apart by the world's definition, but oh, my dear, we're falling right into the perfect place. Our name change is symbolic of a new path and mission in our lives. A path that God has written for our good. A path that was never His plan, but He certainly turned for His glory and our benefit. We will no longer be define by a name that binds us to a place of deep hurt, but we will be defined by God's love for us. We have a purpose greater than the things used to wound us, and nothing can stop it. We have so many incredible things planned for dearadelaiderosalie.com this year, and I can't wait to share more! 2018 is going to be the best year yet. More of You, God. Less of me.
