I write this blog because I want to make a difference.
I want you to stop feeling alone.
I want you to know that you are not the only one that messes up.
It’s ok if you don’t have a pinteresting life.
It’s ok if you are behind on the laundry, are carrying around a little extra weight, haven’t washed your hair in a few days (thank goodness for dry shampoo) and/or lied to the kids and told them it was bedtime an hour early.
You are not alone.
In a world flooded with social media, we have a tendency to compare everyone else’s highlight reel with our bloopers and out takes.
It’s not fair to you, your family, or your marriage.
I could write a blog where I only put my best face forward… but who would that help?
This blog is real life.
Real life means the good, bad, painful, joyful, beautiful, and the ugly.
I know good and bad.
I know painful and joyful.
I also know the beautiful and the ugly.
I know that God created all these experiences and emotions.
I know that they will all be used for his glory.
I also know sometimes when you are in the thick of it… It just sucks.
I get it.
This is an excerpt of a message I received from a reader:
“I read your blog all the time and you seriously make me feel like I’m human, like I’m not some horrible Christian mom failure that can’t do anything right and I don’t have this “perfect” life that everyone else seems to have. You make me feel so much better about life. I also wanted to add that I saw how your daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy. I really admire how you’ve handled the situation. My son was diagnosed with Autism last year and although I know it’s completely different I had a really hard time with it. I completely gave up on my faith with God between that and some other issues I was going through because I just felt like he had completely left my life. But, between some prayer and reading your blog you’ve really helped me get back my faith in God by your example and I wanted to thank you for that.”
That momma is an answer to my prayers, questions, concerns and doubts.
I gave God this blog and I lift it up to Him daily. I know I won’t always get it right… but I am trying my best to be faithful serve my precious readers.
It might be my name at the top of the page… but it’s His work and for His glory alone.
My hope is that this little corner of the internet can be a safe place for you.
I pray you will read this blog and be encouraged.
I pray that you will be a part of our family, that you would laugh with us, cry with us and pray with us.
We can only love and be loved to the extent of which we are known.
