Why I Blog

Why do I blog?

I’m not a writer. At least, I wasn’t until my friend asked me to write a post for her blog about our journey through infertility (back in 2011, I think.) That’s the first time in my adult life that I wrote something other than a college paper. It felt good. And so started my new path of writing.

I wrote many posts for my friend’s blog before finally deciding to branch off on my own. It was a gradual thing. I began to feel convicted and even nervous to step off on my own. What if no one ever reads what I write? People won’t be interested in what I have to say. I’m not good enough.

I felt The Lord tugging at my heart, encouraging me to start a faith based blog. I’m so glad I did. I’m not a bible scholar. I’m not a chef. I’m just a mom and wife who loves Jesus. And we live with food allergies. Thus, this little blog.

My ramblings, thoughts, ideas, recipes, fears, and life, wrapped up in a little bow for all the world to see. Nothing fancy. Just me.

Going through infertility? I’ve been there. Struggling with food allergies and feeling stresssed out? I’ve been there. Love The Lord Jesus and try to please Him? I am there. Trying. Failing. Succeeding. Love your husband and even though he’s flawed, love him with all of your heart and soul? I’m there, too. Struggle with perfection? I’ve been there. Moving to a new town or state and don’t know a soul there? I’ve been there- several times!

If my ramblings can help just one person out there, then I’ve been successful and the heartaches, trials, triumphs and victories I’ve experienced and share are worth it.

Do you have something you’ve been wanting to try or start? Has The Lord been tugging at your heart and you’re too scared to step off of the ledge? Pray about it, listen for His voice, and follow His lead.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11
