Welcome to "Pursuing Holiness in Heels: Living for Christ in Orange County!" As a Christian woman, wife, mom, and being in full-time ministry, my life often looks extremely counter-cultural to what I'm surrounded with in Orange County, California. This blog was created to be a resource of encouragement and edification for all women who desire to pursue a life of holiness...whether in heels, flip-flops or wedges! No matter your shoe wear of choice, I pray this will be a place where women grow in their knowledge of and obedience to Jesus.
