Here’s where I get to tell you a little about me.
I’m a used-to-be-stay-at-home mom, hubby and I have been happily married for 20+ years and have great kids, one of each, boy and girl.
I homeschooled our kids since they were both in middle school all the way up through and completing high school. The youngest is in college now, and the oldest is balancing a full-time job with starting a photography business.
Wow…I feel old!
Now I work a more-than-full-time job while trying to keep the balance of home, family, and real life…not so easy to do.
I started this blog a few years ago when I started my Etsy shop, since shut down because life moves on and one must move with it, but I’m realizing that even in this phase of my life, I’m still on that journey of “finding the thread” that holds this crazy, beautiful tapestry of life together.
And that is what this collection of musings is all about…living life day by day without compromising the important things like faith, family, friends, and clean laundry.
I hope you’ll join me for this ride…road trips are way more fun when you’ve got good company!
There’s just one more thing…If I’m going to claim that this blog is based in real life, then I want you to know that I am a Christian.
I figure here would be a great place to explain exactly who the Lord is and what that means for my life and yours. Because Who Christ is and what He did isn’t just for me, but for you, too. For every person on this earth, in fact.
Firstly, I believe that the Bible is true. Every word of it. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
And because of that fact, I believe in God as He describes Himself in His word, as the Creator and Ruler of all. (Revelation 4:11)
I believe that God originally created us sinless, but through the actions of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, sin came into the world and now each and every one of us is in sin, which separates us from our Holy God. (Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-19)
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that, being fully God and fully man, He paid the debt for my sin that I could never pay, through His death on the cross. (John 14:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
God gives this gift of salvation freely to anyone who asks. It is ours to receive through faith in Him, and cannot be earned by good works. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Now, because my debt for sin has been paid, my relationship with God has been restored and I will spend the rest of eternity with Him. (Ephesians 1:7-10)
And that’s it, in a nutshell. It’s just the basics, of course. If you want to know more, you can check out this webpage.
Keepin’ it real,
