About

~It’s All About Jesus.

I sincerely believe there is nothing greater in this life than knowing Jesus. Really knowing Him–who He is, what He said and how He can be present and active in our daily lives. He can change us and catapult us into the life we’ve always wanted, a life full of joy and peace.

Hi, I’m Erica Faraone and I’m so glad you’ve come by my blog. I want this to be a place where you can always find something to encourage you and challenge you. I hope this blog will remind you that you’re not alone in life’s struggles and remind you that God is with you and God is for you.

A Different Family Story

I live in Whitefish, MT, a beautiful, but cold place. I rave about how light and gorgeous it is all summer and may perhaps complain about how cold and dark it is all winter! Welcome to the North Northwest. But we have amazing coffee, so it all works out.

I am very happily married to a great guy named Scott and we have three terrific kids, almost all grown. Our family story is different than most. Scott and I adopted our three kids when their dad and our friend, Bryan, passed away. (Bryn, Samantha and Kellyn were 13, 11 and 9 at the time.) Their biological mom was long gone and the five of us had this amazing blessing and challenge of becoming a family. We are bonded and still bonding, working to keep close ties, as all families must do. We are negotiating the waters of young adulthood with our kids and doing our best to help them become all God wants them to be. Our three kids bring us such joy.

What I Love Most

As much as I love my family, I love the Lord most. If it wasn’t for Him, I would have given up long ago. His tender love and patience is what has brought me through to where I am today. I have found hope, healing and freedom from fear through my relationship with Jesus.

And that’s what I love to talk about – a daily walk with Christ where we learn to live out the Word of God. Practical application. Real life application. When we grasp the true Life that God has for us, we will live such fulfilled and joyful lives. When we live by God’s principles, we choose to live Blessed!

Ministry

Ministry has been at the center of my life from the start. I was saved in Sunday school at 3 (thank you faithful, Sunday school teachers!) and called to the ministry at 5. I started singing at 10 and speaking at 15. I wrote my first story at 9, about two kids visiting their grandparent’s farm, but I hit a dead end and abandoned the manuscript after the barn burned down in chapter three!

I have been blessed with many ministry opportunities, from traveling in a full-time, national evangelistic ministry for three years to being on staff as the worship leader at Whitefish Assembly of God for five years. Recently, I’ve led worship for ladies retreats and I’ve been speaking and singing at various retreats and events. I’m also currently the worship leader at The Journey Church, a two-year old church plant.

If you’d like to have me come speak or sing at your event, please check out my Ministry page.
