I have a confession to make: this is not my first blog post. I’ve set up two blogs prior to this one, both of them were crafting/lifestyle blogs. I have a love of crafting things and a passion for home decor. I did what all the “welcome to blogging” posts said. I tried, and I think in some ways successfully found my “niche”.
No matter what subject I posted on or how many comments or followers I received, something was always missing. My words felt empty and pointless. I found myself with this constant nagging thought in the back of my mind, “why am i doing this?”. I needed more than a crafting blog, not that there’s anything wrong with those. But for me, I have this desire to put something out there that means something, that makes some type of difference in this world.
When I look at my kids I know that I am here to be their mom. But, I also believe that I am here to encourage others, to tell a story. My story. However long, or short or boring or funny it may be.
It is my hope that through my ramblings, God’s purposes will shine through in my life and He will be glorified. It is the very least I can do. 💛
“for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” -Philippians 2:13
