But, my life took a turn. When I started having babies, my desires changed. I wanted to take care of my family more than I wanted a career or anything else, which was very strange to me. And while it sometimes feels like a thankless job, it has been a source of growth and fulfillment to me as a woman, and has been such a joy in my life. But as much as I love being a wife and mom to the three best guys a girl could ask for, it is not really all that I am. I am first and foremost a follower of Jesus, and am constantly seeking how to best live out my identity in Him; and one of those ways I am doing that is by trying to take care of my family in the best way possible. I don't have it all figured out, and never will. But, learning more every day makes me want to inspire and share it with others.
About this blog:
The idea for this bog has been in the making for a long time. Most women think of their household responsibilities as "duties," but I truly feel that what we think of as our duties can become delights. Can we change our outlook? I don't know, but I'm going to try.
I have been so inspired by books and by others to be more resourceful, more healthy, more frugal, and more aware. This blog is meant to be an account of my journey in doing that, in learning how to be the best possible wife, mom and woman that God wants and equips me to be. And not only doing that, but taking joy and delight in doing that. And what good is wisdom if its kept to yourself? I believe that we were meant to be a blessing to others, so please join me in my journey...and I hope we both learn some things along the way!
