Welcome to LuSays. I’m glad you’re here. My name is Lucille Williams, but my friends call me Lu. What’s your truth? My truth is I’ve struggled a lot through life. I laugh a lot. I cry a lot. And I love all out.
I’m madly in love with my husband of over 34 years. We have an incredible marriage. But it wasn’t always that way. In fact, it started out rough. Really rough. Our first 5 years we titled the “5 year fight.” I’m not kidding. We got back from our honeymoon and fought for 5 years. I was an expert fighter. He was pretty good, too, but I was better. I’m not sure how we stayed together. I think it’s because we made a promise on our wedding day. We keep promises.
Then, one day we met Jesus and everything changed. God taught me how to be a wife and mom. Sounds a bit cliche, I know, but it’s the truth. Today I am a pastor’s wife. Me? I never saw that one coming. I didn’t marry a pastor. God changed him. God changed me. I still struggle, but now I know where to go for the answers.
Together we raised 3 amazing kids, Monica, Tim, and Joseph, who all love and serve God.
To say that I loved raising them would be an understatement. I was the mom who on the first day of kindergarten went home and cried all day. I’m not joking! Now we have 5 children, adding Kyle and Jenny, our son-in-law and daughter-in-law. We also have two grand-babies–who are the loves of my life! When my kids got married it was like having 2 more kids to love but without the labor part. Both my son and son-in-law are pastors. So, there’s a lot of pastor’s in our family, which keeps things pretty crazy.
I love God, my husband, and kids, and grandkids all out. Holding back emotion is not a skill I’ve learned yet. I’m a recovering bulimic, codependent, obsessed mom, people-pleaser, over-eater, and over-dieter. After living in bondage I learned how to live in grace.
If you struggle, too, but want to love better and be the best version of you, then you’ve come to the right place. My life is messy and I’m guessing yours might be as well. Let’s all take this journey together and cheer for each other. Together we can help each other make a difference. I want to make a difference, and leave a mark, don’t you? Each day choose grace. Grace for you, and then extend grace to others. I invite you to join our community of grace-spreaders and click the follow button.
Until next time, make it a great day and love all out! Be a Gracian! Welcome!
