I am married to the love of my life, for almost 9 years, we have 5 wonderful children together and enjoy each day with them. I am one of the few lucky ones that have the opportunity to stay home and care for my family. This was not always the case, I previously worked as a youth counselor in a shelter for troubled youth. When my youngest son Isaac was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (a solid cancerous tumor in his chest), I was forced to stay home and care for him. Now I can not imagine doing anything else with my time, of course there are days I wish I worked outside the home, but for the most part I am super content.
I grew up in a single parent home with 9 siblings, the things I write about are relevant, they are struggles I have faced in the past or are currently facing. I will not pretend to have it all together, because I don’t. I can only share my experiences and hope that I can help another woman get through her journey. There are certain situations we can not change, but we can change the way we look at the situation. I did not asked to be born fatherless, or have a child born with cancer, I did not ask to struggle, but I will live my life as if I did. Throughout my blog I might hit subjects that are hard to digest. Remember I am not perfect, I make bad choices everyday, I am the worst of all sinners, but by Gods grace I am saved, forgiven and loved. Please extend that same grace to yourself, each day is a new day, living by past regrets will make you a prisoner in your own mind a slave to your thoughts.
Please feel free to leave comments, I would love to hear your feed back, good or bad, I am not that absorbed with myself to think everyone will agree with what I write. Again, I will remind you, I am awful at grammar, but I love to write:)
“2:3 and that older women likewise be reverent in behavior, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good; 2:4 that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 2:5 to be sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to to their own husbands, that Gods word may not be blasphemed.” Titus 2:3-5
