New Year New Blog...

Share it Please
So this last year has been a crazy adventure for sure I will be making a layout soon about a year in review and how the Lord has really changed our lives and outlook this last year.

Why a new blog?? Well the hubs and I are in a season of simplifying and making small changes in our life to have HUGE rewards later. So this is the deal, if we don't love it... use it... or need it then it's gone. Either selling it on Craigs List or giving it away to Goodwill or a family in need. The hubby and I wanted our lives and home to reflect the things that are in our hearts. So out with the old and in with the... well old. HAHA. We are looking forward and making sure that we are never so cluttered in our life that we miss the true meaning of why we are here.

This last year the Lord had on multiple occasions told me and convicted me on my busy-ness. It bothered me every time that I heard someone mention that they were too busy to do this or do that and I was curious about why that bothered me so much and I reflected on my own life and how many times I said those very words. Then the Lords soft and still voice whispered... leave it all and follow me. This is one of those TRUST moments that had me at a HUGE crossroads. I loved my busy hectic life of youth ministry, homeschooling, scrapbooking design teams, marketing, teaching classes and then throw in being a mom and wife. I was swamped and did I really have any time to be still and rest in the Lord?? The answer was easy, no I didn't. So over the next few months I slowly let go of all obligations except for being a wife, mom, youth leader and homeschooling my kids. I am so thankful for change and I have found a brand new outlook on life and found Joy that had been lost inside of my crazy life. So this is my new adventure into a new life which for me meant a new blog... what will you find here?? You will find crazy stories as I homeschool 3 kiddos, my art projects and decorating transformations (turning trash into treasures), sewing and playing with fabrics, always playing with paper making mini books, cards, and layouts, painting and most of all our adventures in our pursuit of the All Mighty. Hope you will follow me on this crazy adventure of my "house of 5" (maybe one day 6 if our hope for adoption happens) but that's another blog post in itself.

Be blessed in your pursuit of Him.
