About Me

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Hi! My name is Ronja (pronounce RON-yah). My name means “God is my joy” or “God’s joyful song” in Hebrew — both of which, I think, describe me so well as a person. I am a follower of Jesus, living in southern Finland. I am a Speech & Language Pathologist (SLP) in the making, Lord willing, now working on my Master’s degree. I am fueled by coffee and grace every day.

I am a sinner saved by grace through faith. I come from a home of unbelievers and a past of depression and attempted suicide. Both of these make me appreciate the grace and joy found in Jesus, as I have found so much healing since I started walking with the Lord. I keep discovering God’s grace in the breaking and the mending, and I want to share this light with other beloved children of God.

I write because I believe words matter and even more so, that His Word matters. Abounding Grace is a space where I share about the grace and the hope we hold can hold on to while we walk through this life. This is where I share about my journey of learning to trust God and walking solely by His grace in this world.

Look here for some encouragement for your soul:

    Wow, Ronja! This introduction of yourself moved me to tears. Thank you so much. I have been a Christian for nearly 43 years and am struggling with hurts, letting go, coming to the end of myself and more. Your description of “Abounding Grace” is where we should all be. God continue to bless you richly. I am here as a result of Holley’s Gerth recent post.

      It really is so cool to get to know people from all over the world, from different backgrounds and cultures with the same heart for Jesus! It’s such a great reminder of how the Lord can reach all of us. Thank you for your kind words and your visit, Mary!
