Welcome to jessiecolwell.com! I created this site with the hopes of doing a weekly blog for the Rappahannock Charge and anyone else who is using the lectionary each week. I hope reading this blog is edifying to your spiritual life.

I entitled the site “Blessed Wrestling” because this best defines my call story as related to Genesis 32 when Jacob wrestled with God. Through answering God’s calling upon my life I have felt changed and blessed. I am passionate about continuing to discern God’s calling upon my life and journeying with others as they do the same. Enjoy the blog!

God bless,

Rev. Jessie Colwell
