Why a Blog?

In my introductory post, I said that I thought my friend was crazy for suggesting that I blog. So, why am I doing it? That’s a very good question!

I suppose there are 2 reasons that I decided to take the plunge. In part, this blog is a way to share my life (and our family’s life) with my friends and family who don’t live nearby us. But another part – and I believe the more compelling motive – is that lately I have been doing a lot of thinking and growing, and I want an outlet to share my thoughts, receive some feedback, and hopefully encourage and challenge some other people along the way.

This blog will be a combination of my thoughts about different aspects of life: God, faith, family, and personal growth, as well as a place to share a bit about our family’s adventures.

Welcome!

My Blogging Adventure Begins!

A few weeks ago, a good friend said I should start a blog. At the time, I thought she was crazy – I’m already a stay-at-home-mom to 4 kids age 6 and under and keep myself pretty busy! But the idea has been hanging out in the back of my mind ever since, and here I am!

I feel like I should introduce myself now, but how do you explain who you are to an audience you can’t see? Well, here it goes…

My name is Judy, and I’m a blessed to be “Mama” to four beautiful children. My husband is my best friend and my rock. My relationship with God is real, lasting, and impacts everything I do. I’m a Messianic Believer, and enjoy living out my faith in obedience to God’s Word.

Other than my God, my family, and my friends, I am also passionate about a few other things including homeschooling, attachment parenting, breastfeeding, and natural childbirth. I’m a total bookworm! In addition to the stuff I already mentioned, you’ll find books on my shelf about Biblical motherhood, holistic health, nutrition, infant & child psychology, knitting & crochet, drawing, photography, and graphic design.

Looking forward to sharing some of my life with you!
