Why I Blog

I do believe I'm pushing my blog a step forward, or at least would like to believe so in my little head that writes many unpublished blog posts randomly throughout the day...while standing at the kitchen sink. I like blogging. In a season of life where most all of my time is spent within the 4 walls of my home with 3 small children (boys!) who are loud, messy, warriors, and very uninterested in my introspective thought, blogging gives me outlet. It's a place where I can come to be intellectually challenged by reading (your) great blog. I love hearing stories of other 'mom days' within your 4 walls. I, of course, love to give snapshots of my boys, our life happenings, and other snippets of life. But I also love to give my thoughts on real life topics, yes I do know what's going on outside of our home...even though I don't leave it much. I have a high addiction to run-on sentences, very poor grammar, and have always had a severe dislike of every English class I've ever taken. I'm not suggesting I write well. You've been forewarned. I don't do it well, I know. I'm not trying to submit essays for a grade. That's the freedom in it I suppose. I invite you into my thoughts of just not life as a homemaker, but life as a woman, a daughter, a wife, a sister and a friend. This is just a glimpse of me. Most days, I probably will choose the better glimpses. All in all...still just glimpses. You won't fully know me because you read my blog, but I do hope you know some of me.

I love God. I believe He is truth, and most of what the world offers us is spinning around in lies that overtake our hearts. My husband and I seek Him in all things...decisions, joys, trials, arguments, anger, sadness, confusion. We need Him. He is our constant that doesn't sway, because if all we had was us...then life would only feel like a roller-coaster, and those are only fun for a short while. Life with God is eternally abundant. Not always happy, not without sadness...but peace beyond description. We are committed to raising our boys to be future men of character, of righteousness, of honor, and of love. Men of strong wills, men of truth, and men of tenderness. I currently homeschool our boys. We believe these early years are impressionable years, and so we keep them home. I am not a super-mom. I have many days with yelling, crying, and stamping feet.....by me, not them. I don't stay home because it's easy. I stay home because they're worth it. I am not perfect because I go to church and love God. I love God because I am a mess. And I'm so glad He helps me.

I blog for me. I blog for you. I do think I, also, blog for Him.

My life is real. This is just a glimpse.
