I am a 32 year old Christian wife to a great husband and mom of two amazing little ones. I love my life and I love the Lord and I strive to be in the center of His will for my life. Being a wife and mom is the most important thing to me next to being a disciple of Jesus Christ. After that is taking care of my home, and serving others outside of my family (in and out of the church). Godly priorities are a big thing for me. Without them being in order, it's like fighting an uphill battle. With them, there is peace. And grace. Things flow so much better. I have found that as I look to Him to set my agenda, He orders everything in the most perfect way.
So that's all the fluffy "about me" stuff! I began blogging in June of 2010, and I really love it! I am now one of those bloggers with way more blogs in my reader than I can possibly keep up with. I don't understand it myself. I also love reading publications that I can hold in my hands- (you know, like books!) and the occasional magazine. I've found myself visiting the library a couple times per week lately. The children love being there and I love it too of course, so everyone is happy! (Though that doesn't help much in keeping me from trying to read more than reasonable!)
I serve in my church, where I've been a member for eight years. I help out with the audio/visual department as well as the children's ministry (though I'm happy to be more of a "behind the scenes" kind of helper with that- scheduling volunteers and stuff like that!)
I also love doing things around the house. I enjoy creating and trying new things in the kitchen. Since November, I've been a consultant with The Pampered Chef- and that's a lot of fun for me and a way to bring in extra income for our family- while still maintaining control of my schedule.
A little bit about my family:
My husband is an awesome man of God- I was first attracted to his commitment to serving others in ministry and his vast knowledge of the Word! We've been married since August 2006. You can read our story here.
My three year old son is a curious little one! He loves to do worksheets, play at the park, and read (his favorite authors are Mercer Mayer and Dr. Seuss), among other things. My daughter is going on eighteen months old, and enjoys spending time with select members of her family, waving hello to people, "reading" board books, and eating the occasional crayon!
My goal for this blog is to not only share the experiences I've had as a daughter of God, but to challenge, inspire and help you to grow in your roles as well...wherever you may be on your journey! I invite you to join me in this journey of finding out the awesome things God has in store for us when we say "yes" to Him and "no" to the cultural norm.
