Welcome to Church Decoded!!!
Hello! My name is Valencia. Welcome to my blog, Church Decoded. Where we apply Sunday's sermons to Tuesday's problems. I wanted to start this blog because I've been a church girl all of my life, & I know the difficulty in maintaining the joy you get on Sunday despite the mess you encounter throughout the week. Hopefully, as I decode the "church talk" & "church life" to better understand Christ & the life He gave me, I'll help you do the same. Before we begin, please know that I'm....
A Little Silly/Childish (...or a lot)
To know me is to know that I laugh at just about everything. So there may be quite a few "lols" & "hahas". Also, I've grown up in the church. Therefore, I will use a lot of popular church phrases (verrrry jokingly). Why? First, because it's literally apart of my personality (you spend enough time in church, it sticks). Secondly, because I feel like a lot of the phrases that we say that have become tradition, & I want to find the real meaning behind them.
I have definitely made my fair share of mistakes. I'll definitely make some in the future. If there's anything that I am not, it's perfect. Many of my stories come from my own mistakes and lessons. If something I say helps you, great! That's what I'm hoping for. I may not be just like you, but I'm drawing from the same batch of grace that you are. I am a product of grace just like you. So, this journey is for all of us.
