Sandra’s Blog

One year after my journey of grace began, God led me to start blogging about my story of freedom to show others that they too could enjoy freedom living. In this blog, I cover a wide variety of subjects and address each one from the foundation of God’s grace because true freedom comes only by His grace!

Anxiety & Frustration To Rest & Relaxation

Is all the trying in the world still not giving you the results you want? Discover what it means to give up your own efforts and let Jesus take over.

Many of us believe that in order to please God, we have to be perfect. It’s an easy lie to buy into. In a culture that emphasizes accomplishment and ever-higher goals, we feel driven to do more, achieve more, be more.  The result? Anger, Frustration, and anxiety that keep us far away from the life of peace that Jesus promised.

For years, Sandra McCollom lived in this trap, until God revealed to her the riches of His grace. In I Tried Until I Almost Died, Sandra shares how she left behind her burden of anxiety and fear and shows you how to experience for yourself the freedom of trusting solely in the perfecting power of God’s grace.
