Awe… breath in the goodness of this day, exhale the praise!
This isn’t my first rodeo with blogging. I started a fitness blog over a year ago in attempt to encourage women and to share some tips on working out. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy working out but lately I just keep getting this nudge to lay that down and move into a different direction.
If I want God to use me to help others, then I truly have to be honest and translucent. Ugh this makes my heart pound a little heavier and a little quicker, okay I’m lying, a lot harder and a lot quicker!!
So who am I anyways? I am a mother of 4 children, well that is what I call myself, but society would make sure I labeled things correctly so technically I am a Step Mom to two teenagers, and a biological mom to my two younger children who are not even close to the preteen stages.(Thank you Jesus) I have been happily married to my husband for 10 years. I became a Step Mom at the age of 20, I am 30 now, and then we fostered 18 children within 7 years of our marriage. I enjoy working out, writing, crocheting, and reading a good book! I teach chapel, science, cooking, music, and second language at a preschool here in our small comfortable Texas town. I love LIFE and strive to be a super enthusiast, now if only my personality would catch up to my life goals!
You see I strive to be a LOT of things, but most importantly I strive to love God, love Jesus with all my heart, and live my life for his glory by loving and serving others. Emphasis on the STRIVE, because I really, really, really want to be that woman who is a complete sell out for God, but then you know life happens, and I fall short daily, hourly, even secondly. Jesus help me!
My weakness and my struggles are what birthed the concept to make a blog shift from working out to just being a real mother and wife who is in desperate need of absorbing God’s grace every day!
I need to absorb grace as much as my heart can hold so that I can be quick to extend it to others!
When I look back on my 30 years of life I can see God’s fingerprints of grace all over me and my circumstances.
What is grace you might ask? Well it is defined as God’s kindness, and favor. The most awesome part about God’s grace is that it isn’t something you have to earn, but something he gives freely.
So bookmark me, cozy up in your blanket, grab that cup of coffee, follow me, follow via email, really how ever you want to follow me, and journey aside me if you may on this Grace filled life as a momma, wife, teacher, friend.
I don’t have all the answers, but I do have the one who does in my heart, and in his precious time I know I will one day know them, maybe just not on this side of eternity!
Watch me get something right, and watch me screw things up all at the same time! It’s life, and for the most part it’s messy, but man it’s fun and wonderfully beautiful all at the same time!
