Hi, I’m Devany. I am 33 years old, married to LJ, my high school sweetheart and love of my life. We have a 4.5 year old son and 2 year old daughter. My husband and I love living in Colorado, getting outdoors, traveling, eating good food and being with people. I’m high-energy and love peoples’ stories, adventure and reading. I’ve worked as a public relations coordinator, a high school dance coach, a Spanish teacher to grades K-12 and for the past 2 years a 200 hour certified Yoga teacher.
As long as I can remember, I’ve loved to read, hear people’s stories, ask questions, be a student and encourage others to reach their highest potential. I spent my 20s hustling for my worth in my achievements and abilities. By the culture’s standards – I was nailing it. I was working, being a wife, raising my kids and doing all the things.
Then, over the course of the last three years, through a series of loss and spiritual growth– I came to see that my control was nothing more than my attempt to “feel” safe. Instead of continuing to push through and muscle up, I surrendered to the deep grace and love of Jesus, where I am discovering rest for my weary body and soul.
You may wonder about the origin of Delight in Grace? Well cool story– it’s my name. The origin of Devany is delight and Anne is grace. I’ll save that story for another post, but it has been part of my journey. It’s the Lord’s reminder to be, instead of do, and receive instead of earn.
Welcome to a space where we can share stories. A space where we talk about life, faith and relationships with vulnerability and authenticity.
When we examine the story of our life we remember that our life is the lesson and God is the teacher.
There is space for you here, so take a seat and rest for a moment.
