Today I’m starting a brand new journey. I’m not sure where this will take me, but I’m excited to see what happens.
After a lot of encouragement from my husband, I’m starting this blog. It is a place for me to share my thoughts about my life as a woman.
Being a wife, mom, and homemaker is a huge part of that, but that is not everything. Added to those three wonderful titles are many other realms that my life encompasses. Some of these are daughter, sister, friend, church member, neighbor, and citizen. Part of being a woman of ambition is being the best that I can be in all those areas, finding where my priorities lie, and, most importantly, never forgetting that above all else is the amazing gift of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I feel somewhat like a bird being let lose from a cage. I have discovered that I love to write. Yes, that is truly a discovery. If you had asked my Mom when I was in high school, crying over every single paragraph and paper I had to write, that one day I would want to write, I’m sure she would have laughed. I’m chuckling to myself, actually.
I hope that in writing about what I am learning, struggling with, and striving for, you will find in me someone with whom you can relate. If I can be an encouragement to someone along the way, that will be the “icing on the cake.”
