Resolutions don’t need to be earth-shattering, amazing, or even drastic “New Year, New Me” endeavours, which often can be insurmountable.
About Jess McDonald Ragg
Jess is a wife and mum, and is by no means an expert on life, but she has taken field notes for the seasons she's walked in. Writing is her way of giving glory to God in all of the highs and lows of life.
Her experience with the body of Christ has been a bit of a kaleidoscope. She was raised in a Pentecostal family and attended a Catholic school before completing her bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministries at a multi-denominational Bible College.

We were a picture-perfect Christian couple. We married in a beautiful ceremony—the climax of the fairy tale all Christian girls long for.
Only it wasn’t a Christian fairy tale.
I was over the moon when I saw those two lines on the pregnancy test. However, during the first scan at about the eight-week mark, it was immediately obvious something was wrong.
Our assignment was: practicing actual street evangelism. If you’re as introverted as I was, just thinking about this would give you a case of the cold sweats.
In my late teens and early twenties, fresh faced and uni-bound, questions and concerns about God’s will for my life often dominated my thoughts. I searched for my “purpose” and “calling” in every corner I could find.
YMI (which stands for Why Am I?), is a platform for Christian young people all over the world to ask questions about life and discover their true purpose. We are a community with different talents but the same desire to make sense of God’s life-changing word in our everyday lives.
YMI is a part of Our Daily Bread Ministries.
