For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

Bold and Free Thursday Three

Bold and Free Thursday Three

Three Things Not Working at my House

1. A/C

2. Dryer

3. Dishwasher

Three reasons it's not so bad:

1. Today is the first day above 80 since the A/C broke on Sunday.

2. Today it's above 80 so the clothes dry on the line.

3. It's too hot in the house to cook, so we have no dishes.


  1. Way to be positive! Jeri, thank you so much for your continued thoughts, prayers and encouraging words. I'm going to forward your comment on to my cousin, Nate's mom. She's really struggling emotionally in so many ways, and I love her dearly. We played together a lot as children. You are a precious woman of God.

  2. Yikes. I just hate when everything breaks. Hope they are up and running again soon.

  3. What a positive attitude! Thanks for sharing it!
