There is so much to share that I am sure I will forget half of it, but that is okay....here is what I remember of it today...ha!
This blog has been on my mind for a while now. I haven't felt that it was what I wanted to do, but the fact that it keeps coming back up over and over and over again tells me that maybe it is what I am supposed to do. It is one of those things where I feel that God is up in Heaven shaking His head and thinking "she finally listened to what I have been trying to tell her."
What is the purpose of this blog?
When I think of this, I think that I want it to be an encouragement to all the mommies out there. Mother's of little children are essentially all in the same boat and all have the basically the same objective and that is to raise our children the best way we know how. That is much easier said than done isn't it? I hope and pray that we can share with each other and be an inspiration to one another.
What lead me to wanting to make a blog?
Over the past several months I have been trying my hardest to be still and listen to what God is calling me to do. What HIS purpose is for me in my life. I have been looking for a Bible study that pertains to me and to what I am going through right now raising a 1 & 2 year old. That was hard for me to find. I still haven't found it to be honest. But during all this I continued to have a desire to want to right down all the these that were going on in my life. I wanted/needed to look up scripture that pertained to those situations. And most importantly I have felt a very strong desire to share what I have learned, what I am still learning, and my life experiences.
What should I expect when I read this blog?
Here is what I am shooting for: Monday - Friday I will try to post each morning a short something. What that is depends on the day. Like I said I am a mother of a 1 & 2 year old, so who knows how much time I'll get to sit down and type something up. I hope that each of you will share with me and with the other readers experiences you are going through, how you have seen God's love and design in your life, answered prayers, funny stories about your kids. I would love for this to be as interactive as possible.
Speaking of interactions. There is a PRAYER REQUEST tab at the top. Each Monday I plan on clearing out any comments (prayer requests or praises!) that were made from the previous week, so we can start fresh. Anything that you would like me or anyone that reads this blog to pray for please share and we will.
I would like for ya'll to know a few things about me and about my struggle of starting this blog before we get started. Every day before I go to bed I look back on the day and wished that I could have been a better mom, person, wife and child of God. I struggle with day to day things (like potty training....aaahhh!). I struggle with self esteem. I struggle with control. I want to be perfect and do everything perfect. I am flawed. I am a sinner. I have a forgiving, loving, wonderful God who I am trying my hardest to walk with daily. I have a wonderful husband and children who I adore and love so much that words cannot describe, but boy do they drive me crazy sometimes. I am just a mommy trying to do my best!
This blog has been prayed for and I hope so much that is blesses and encourages you.
Now, let's get this party started!!!!!
