Thanks for stopping by! I’m Sydnie Evans, and I live in St. Paul, MN with my awesome husband and our two sons.
I am a believer in Jesus Christ, and I love sharing all about what He has done and is doing in my life. When I was a sophomore in college, I gave my life to the Lord, and it has been changed ever since.
As that sophomore in college I had just joined a well known historically black sorority, my life was set up for generally unhealthy relationships, and I was plagued by emotional distress, low self-esteem, and perfectionism. I couldn’t hold my life together anymore and I wanted more out of my life. God stepped in and called me to salvation, and that has made all the difference.
When I walked up to the alter to give my life to the Lord, I ended up getting baptized with the Holy Spirit that same day! I didn’t even really know that people got baptized in the Holy Spirit, but since that day I have been on fire for the Lord. I have grown tremendously, and most importantly I’ve realized that what Jesus did on the cross was enough for even me. His love reached even me. His grace reached even me, and I am excited to share with you all that He is doing because of it!
A couple months after receiving Jesus into my heart, I was spending time with the Lord. The impression came to my heart to start writing on a blog.
Uncommon Grace started with that random blog post about 6 years ago. Even though I didn’t really envision myself as a writer before then, the Lord empowered me on this journey toward encouraging His daughters. Over the years I’ve developed a passion for uplifting and encouraging others, and this blog is a tool that God has given me to actively walk in that passion and calling!
By sharing my own authentic stories of my walk with God and of being a wife and mother I hope that this platform aids in pointing you more towards God and growing in the skills you need in order to be the most maximized daughter of God you were called to be! My goal is that you grow in knowing and understanding your identity in Christ.
You’ll find lots of information on this site ranging from grace and trusting God to preparing for marriage and being a wife or mom. I’m excited for you to take this journey with me. I am growing and learning just like you are, and my hope is that we grow together in discovering who God really called each of us to be and in being prepared for the ultimate day when we meet Him!
