I'm in for the Hop!


No, I'm not going to Blogher, although Chicago is my home town and I'll be there visiting family in the middle of August. I'm not quite sure I'm ready for Blogher yet, still relatively new at this, have only been blogging for about two years.

I'm Karin, known as HisFireFly ("His" meaning God's) and also "his" meaning my beloved husband Rick who coined the name FireFly because he said I reflect the light of God. I fell in love with the name and have used it ever since.

I spent the first 43 years of my life living in Chicago and it's surrounding suburbs, not knowing Jesus. I met the Lord, gave Him my life, and He united me with a small town Manitoba man. I moved up North and we now live on 20 beautiful acres in the middle of nowhere which is exactly the somewhere that God desires me to be.

My life is now a journey toward radical obedience to whatever God calls me to do, reflecting His light and living for His glory.

Looking forward to meeting some new friends as we hop around cyber space this weekend.

Well, now I have discovered that you're a fellow Canadian! Yay! And from Manitoba - that is where I was born and where most of my extended family still is (they're in Morden - anywhere near you?).

I will most definitely be visiting again!
