“Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.”
1 John 3:2
Welcome to Beloved Walks, which celebrates God’s peace and His love for all of His creations.
JC and Snow are each other’s Bible Study Partner (BSP), best friend, and, if it is the Lord’s will, someday more.

Together, we have survived death, abuse, hate, greed, job losses, abandonment, divorce, and more to come. We try to look for the blessings in those things, though sometimes we fail. Beloved Walks chronicles our experiences and challenges as Christians living in the 21st century.
We provide observations and thoughts on Jesus, God, and the Bible, often placed in the context of the very raw struggles and abundant joys of our lives.
We celebrate the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit while showcasing some of what we learn along the way on our journey to the Kingdom of Heaven.
JC’s walk began in June 2008. Today, she is a 46-year-old mom who was freed from a hostile work environment in 2019. She prays for God’s will and timing for similarly ending an abusive marriage. JC is a strong advocate of daily quiet time – prayer and reading of the Bible.

Favorite Obscure Verse:
“Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the LORD your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Snow’s walk began when JC led him to Jesus in June 2018. He is 45-years-old and has been learning to trust Him. In 2019, Snow experienced almost every type of change imaginable – his Mom went to Heaven, his marriage ended, he moved to live by himself for the first time, and he lost his job. Through it all, Jesus was there to shower him with blessings.

Favorite Chapter: Romans 8
“‘Go out and stand before me on the mountain,’ the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper.”
1 Kings 19:11-12
