We interrupt this series…

So apparently, I’m not really following the “rules” of blogging. Apparently, “they” say that when you begin blogging, you should do a max of one post a week so that your readers don’t get a) overwhelmed and b) expect too much from you.

As much as I don’t want you dear reader mamas (and dads) to get overwhelmed, or set your expectations too high, if I followed that “rule”, it would take me at least a month to relate the different lessons I learned at the “Called to Love” retreat!

You’ll also see an increase in posts over Christmas break as I also plan to make this my place to journal our cross-country trip to see family in Kentucky and Alabama. We’re taking the “All-American” road trip…in the winter…over the Rockies…Yes, we’re crazy. There was never any doubt. But should the Lord allow and weather permit, we hope to see Little Big Horn, Mount Rushmore, at least one Laura Ingalls Wilder museum, the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the Creation Museum, the Grand Canyon and Salt Lake. It may be a whirlwind, but we are all very excited!

Finally, I’ll likely blog more heavily when I have a series, such as the one you’ve been gracious enough to read, and then stick with the once or twice a week “rule” thereafter.

Just wanted to fill you all in on what to expect from this little page over the next month or so.

Blessings and much love,

Mama

Doing my part, where I am.

Welcome to my blog. I have been happily married for nearly 14 years and am a stay-at-home mama. My husband and I  adopted our two boys in February 2013 and have fostered as well since then.

About a year ago, the Lord laid it on my heart to start a blog. The thought overwhelmed me. HOW? Who has time for that? What would I say? And once I figure that out, who would want to read it? But the Lord kept pressing it upon me.

Then, about two months ago, we were at our church watching a nearly 20-year-old video of author, Frank Peretti speaking. It was called, “The Chair.” What I took away that night was invaluable. Near the end of his talk he said that he knew how overwhelming it was to live in this sinful world. The darkness and despair is all around. What can we possibly do? But then he just reminded the audience of the story of Nehemiah. The people of Israel weren’t asked to look at the huge task, this massive city wall that was to be built, but rather, to build just a brick at a time, right where they were. Many didn’t even leave their homes. They just did what they could where they were. THAT was my AHA moment.

So, here I am this evening, posting my introduction of who I am to you, my dear reader friend, on this cool web page my husband landed for me! You may personally know me or may have just stumbled upon this page. Either way, my prayer is, as the Lord lays subjects, stories, songs and pieces of my testimony on my heart to share that you will be blessed and draw nearer to the Lord.

I’m just doing my part, where I am.

Blessings and much love,

Mama
