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.”

  4. I missed your first post! I guess I was too busy being a grandma. I am so happy that you are putting yourself out on a limb and doing this. You have so many wonderful thoughts to share and I always knew you could write if you just tried.
    Love you lots, Mom

    • Definitely putting myself “out there” which is hard for me. I am looking forward to seeing how it will stretch and grow me though! Thanks for being supportive!

  5. I’m so glad that you’re doing this! Just discovered your new blog this morning, and I am thrilled. I have been doing a lot of reading along this subject myself lately, and find myself definitely wanting to hear more. I look forward to your perspective and thoughts. (and yes, you are a wonderful writer. I enjoyed greatly these first few posts.)

    • Thanks so much for the encouragement, Deanna! It is kind of out of my element so I’m excited and nervous! I’m not a great writer, but I’m hoping to improve through blogging! Thanks for stopping and commenting. I really appreciate it. :)
