Welcome to Unrestrained

Welcome to Unrestrained, where we talk about pursuing the heart of God and living life from His abundant grace.

Say goodbye to all the could’s and shoulds and embrace the simplicity of living out of identity and grace. Over here, the goal is about taking the next right step toward the fullness of God, whatever that may be.

You will find encouragement, inspiration, and helpful resources for your daily journey as you cultivate a life of deeper faith through intimacy with God. 


My name is Maureen, and I’m so glad you are here. 

I am a Worship Pastor and have been leading alongside my husband in full-time Church Ministry for more than 25 years. Along the way, I’ve learned some valuable lessons about hope and trust that have led to healing and peace. My goal here at Unrestrained, is to encourage and help you find that too as you pursue God. So, consider this an open invitation for you to come join me on the blog each week as we linger over stories from the journey.

Because, here’s the thing…

You and I were designed to live connected to God, which is why our hearts long for more than empty religious motions. There is an inner longing that wants all that God has promised, but cultivating that relationship can feel elusive. 

The truth of the matter is that God wants more of you too!

He invites us to know him, in fact, He, calls us by name. He delights to show Himself in every aspect of life, creatively demonstrating all the nuances of His personality and character. This sacred invitation is a life-long journey that follows the heart of God into the deeper places of seeing who He is and becoming whole and complete in Him.

You and I were made to live from the abundance of God…not for it. Intimacy with God is a life-long journey, building trust and cultivating faith in all the moments of our everyday lives.

Find encouragement, inspiration, and helpful resources as you pursue the heart of God.
