For example, the body is one unit and yet has many parts. As all the parts form one body, so it is with Christ. By one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.Whether we are Jewish or Greek, slave or free, God gave all of us one Spirit to drink (1 Corinthians 12:12-13).

I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. The wide open spaces motivate me to breathe deeper and run farther than I think possible. One of my greatest joys is loving on my niece and two nephews. They remind me how great it is to be a kid again.
I earned my B.A. Secondary Education English degree from Wichita State University & my M.L.A. Literature degree from Baker University. I teach high school English Language Arts and ESL students in an urban district. My job allows me to support students as they each continually learn, try new skills, fall in love with reading and write in new ways they once thought impossible.
I have experience in leading high school, college age, and women’s bible studies, small groups, and discipleship relationships. I am also encouraged each time I teach and speak at retreats focused on teenage girls. I am a contributor of a chapter in the book Valiant Men Valued Women: A Small Book of Truths for Every Man & Every Woman by Ryan McCoskey. Using story and scripture to write and teach simultaneously excites me and humbles me.
Hey girlfriends, I’m Resealia. I think I’m the only one you’ll ever meet. I’m often asked if my name has any meaning. It doesn’t. My dad creatively named me using partly his name and his mother’s name.
I am a happy wife to my husband of almost fourteen years. I am Mama to Reese Madison. Although I may never lay eyes on her sweet face again here on earth; I’m confident I will see my sweet angel again. I am a soon-to-be mama in whatever way God chooses to fulfill this desire of my heart.
As a counselor by profession, I have a special interest in Marriage and Family Therapy. I enjoy learning, teaching, speaking, writing and encouraging through my work and ministry opportunities. My favorite ministry opportunities are to minister hope and healing to women and marriages.
I love all things feminine and great authentic conversation (no pretenses). Discussions with real down-to-earth women refresh me. I especially enjoy women who aren’t afraid to live life out loud and open themselves to community. Transparency, in my opinion is a gift to any relationship.
I cherish Sunday naps after an awesome meal. Italian and Southern cuisine rank high on my list of food preferences. I am trying to watch my carb intake and I’m slowly learning what all the ‘clean eating’ craziness is all about! I’m not a coffee girl, but I love tea! That hug in a cup speaks my love language.
I can go on and on about my likes/dislikes, etc. But at the end of the day, it’s not what really matters. What matters most is the honor I’ve been given to be a part of His story (the Gospel of Jesus Christ). You won’t find me in the Bible, but He has made my story relevant; just as real. A living epistle of sorts for those in my sphere of influence to read. A story that teaches me hard lessons and can teach others. To strengthen, to hope, to live life for Him.
I love the opportunity to write monthly for this awesome community of women, Daughters of the Deep. I can’t wait to see all God is going to do through this ministry!
I also blog at my personal blog, The Heart Spa, www.theheartspa.blogspot.com.

Katie has always had a passion for nursing until she re-dedicated her life to Christ. Not having grown up with a strong biblical background, Katie come to find her faith through trials. After coming to know Jesus in such an intimate way, she felt she was called to ministry to spread the Word of God to everyone she could possible reach by way of writing, speaking, and building friendships. She has a heart for people and all things Jesus, and wants nothing more than people to know the love and forgiveness of God. Katie is a lover of puppies, pizza, and all things coffee. When she is not working as an RN, she enjoys spending time with her husband and five children. While Katie still works as a RN currently, she cannot wait for the perfect timing of God’s “send” to His calling over her life so she can work full time in ministry! Until then, Katie patient awaits God’s will over her life in a small town in Mississippi.
