(Gasp!) More Than a Mom?

My husband has been encouraging me to join the world of Mommy Bloggers. While I take advantage of and enjoy plenty of mommy blogs, there was something holding me back.  In my mind I know all too well that mothering takes up a huge part of my daily thoughts, worries, and prayers.  Raising children, especially raising Godly children, is a huge responsibility that half of the time I feel like I can hardly do well.  I appreciate connecting with other parents and relating to one another’s struggles and finding ways to encourage one another or advise one another.  But blogging about it?  All the time?  Something was holding me back….

Today I realized what it was.  While I absolutely feel called to be a mom and since my children are young and this “calling” takes up a huge portion of my time and life, there is still way down deep under that layer of mommy skin……ME!  If anything, I need a blog to express the part of me that is often pushed to the side to care for my children or to relate to the people who are a part of my mommy world.  So while I’ll probably write plenty about being a wife and mother, I don’t want to be limited to just a Mommy Blog format.  I want to share my heart, my struggles, my joys, and hopefully I can share a bit of the mercy that God has shown me.

And if you want to see or read more about my cutie-patooties, go to my family blog.
