“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” – 1 Timothy 1:15
Hello and welcome to Heavenly Springs! I’m delighted you stumbled onto my little – and I do mean little, corner of the internet! My name is Christina, and in November 1999, in an act of God’s Sovereignty, I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Today, I can sing with the hymnist, “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.” You can read my testimony here. I’m from Brooklyn but now live in Long Island with my husband, and best friend, Steven. We’ve been married 18 years, and each year has been marked by the faithfulness of a covenant-keeping God. We are members of Grace Baptist Church in Woodhaven, Queens, where we love to serve the family of God in various capacities.
I blog when I can. Sometimes I can write plenty; other times only a little. I’ve learned to accept the seasons of God’s providence. At Heavenly Springs, you can expect to see a variety of posts on topics such as Reformation theology, the doctrines of grace, church history, Christian biography, book reviews, and more. Besides Reformation history and theology, I enjoy American History — particularly the Revolutionary War era, baking pastries and desserts, cooking different regional cuisines and reading historical biographies. I’m also an avid dog lover and unabashedly smitten by our two rescue pups, Jake and Titus.
Thanks again for visiting! Time is our most precious commodity, and I am humbled that anyone would spend it here.
