Known to many by now as “Twinkle Mom”, Vida is a happily married stay-at-home mom with a nutty dachshund that manages to find his way into the occasional post.
Finding strength and encouragement through her family, friends, church and faith in God, Vida began writing Sunflower Faith initially as a way to keep accountable of her walk with God and was amazed how it had grown from a simple walk to a journey.
Since then, she has found her life being led to new paths by God, that has reinforced in her, that if we,” Proverbs 3:5,6 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.“
Writing about her musings on family, friends, and particularly her faith in Jesus Christ, Vida strives to share an honest journey of an imperfect person who found salvation through our Heavenly Father all the while, listening to the call of our Father above and to this day, keeps seeking Him and His will for her and her family.
1 Chronicles 16:11 (NIV)-” Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.“
By day a busy mom devoted to her family, By night working on Sunflower Faith and her online bible study group, Fill Your Cup, Vida has a deep and everlasting love for our Heavenly Father that she finds impossible to keep contain and drives her to seek new ways to share God’s word and to learn more about our Heavenly Father and His Word.
Vida has described her life as a “personal Damascus Road” where only through the blessing and salvation of Jesus Christ, she discovered a new life through Jesus Christ whom she now, in turn, tries to share with others about through gentle musings on her blog, Sunflower Faith.
Realizing she isn’t and can’t claim to be perfect , Vida does embraced, that she has been forgiven by the loving Grace of Our Heavenly Father. With this, Vida sees writing as an opportunity to reach out to others to share the redeeming love of a Heavenly Father who reaches out to all and is a God of second chances. Sunflower Faith is that blog about continuous praise, a testimony to and about God and a commitment to our Heavenly Father above.
Galatians 2:20 (NIV),” I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Keeping God first in everything, Vida spends her time taking care of her home and family and always seeking time with God in His Word (Psalm 119:16-”Delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.”), All the while, keeping her heart and soul open, with a Sunflower filled Faith, to where ever our Heavenly Father leads her next on her journey with Him.
(Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
