First things 1st

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7

This is my first post ever and I am so excited! I've never blogged before. I felt that there was nothing in my life that was super interesting and I thought: "who would be interested in what I have to say?"  But then I got to thinking, there is nothing more important to me than my relationship with Jesus. I desire to draw closer to Him daily and share his love with those around me. (...God did not give us a spirit of timidity...). 

So, I decided to start a blog.

I have three goals:

I am a big believer of encouragement. I know how much it means to me when someone offers a word of encouragement. Everyday God uses different people in different ways to encourage others. Whether spoken or written, there IS power in words. My hope is that if you stumble across my blog, you will somehow be encouraged.

Lately, I've been wanting to start a family journal to record our memories.  I thought this would be the perfect place to record fun family photos and stories.

I don't know about you, but my days seem to fly by so quickly. A lot of days I get so busy with life, I forget to take a step back to actually enjoy it. It's important for me as a wife and mom to have some quiet time everyday. I need time to relax and just breath. It is my hope that this will give me some discipline to have that quiet time (...a spirit of power, of love and self-discipline). For some people, having a blog might be the thing that stresses them out (always wondering what to write next). So...I promise, the moment this blog starts stressing me out I will take a break!!!
