As I, (meaning my husband,) have been giving my blog a much needed update, I realized that I had not published a post since March 1, 2011! Yikes, I certainly won’t be winning any blogging awards in the near future, but that ok. I never set out to be an amazing and consistent blogger! I’ve decided to give myself some grace in this area, I’ve been too busy living life to be able to actually sit down and write about it.
Since that last post over 3 years ago some big and not so big, but important “life” stuff has happened.
*We have moved, not to New York as some of the earlier posts would lead one to believe, but instead about a mile down the road from our old house right here in Michigan. The home was built in 1938 so we have been quite consumed the past year with updating and remodeling.
*After spending several years of job uncertainties, traveling and being gone months at a time, my husband begin a wonderful new job last summer that requires very little travel and is so close to our home he can bike to work. (He loves to ride).
* I have proudly looked on as my oldest son graduated from high school and navigated his way through his freshman year of college.
* I have cheered on my second born through many high school and club soccer games and watched proudly as he has monthly played his guitar and led worship at our church.
* I’ve been kept busy home schooling my two younger sons and helping them to discover their interests.
*All the while trying to find time to nurture other relationships, participate in many ministries, and try to fit in some speaking when I was able.
I now find myself entering a slightly different season of life. My children are getting older (code for “so am I and they don’t seem to need me as much”), my youngest who has always been home schooled will begin attending traditional school this fall and suddenly I am finding that I actually have more time to devote to speaking for Women’s ministries! I am greatly excited about this!
So, while I probably will not post much on this blog and will use it primarily as a vehicle for my speaking topics and anything else new that I am working on, I will occasionally post some random stuff here. Currently I am working on converting a Bible study that I led this winter to something more web-friendly. I hope that you will check back for that in a few months!
