My New Blog

I have had a blog for the past 5 years. It used to be that when you compared Xanga and Blogger, Xanga was by far better in my opinion. Now,I think it is the opposite. Now I prefer to read blogs on blogger. Wordpress is my favorite though, but way confusing and that is why I am on :)

I am a Homemaker. My husband and I got married about 2 years ago on September 16, 2006. Now we have a beautiful 4 month old daughter! My mother was home with my siblings and I while I was growing up and so I honestly never had any other ambition for my life. All I have ever wanted to do was be a wife and a mother. I think the opportunity to be a homemaker is one of the greatest blessings any woman could receive. I thank God that I do not have to work at this point in my life. I believe that every mother should be a stay at home Mom (unless it is absolutely necessary that you work). There is no excuse to throw your children in daycare for no reason other than to make extra money. If you can survive on one income, you MUST do it. Your children are precious and your time with them is short. When you put a child in daycare, you miss everything and you can never get that time back. My Mom died when I was 20 years old. I am SO thankful for the time I got to spend with my Mom at home all those years. I am absolutely positive that if my Mom had been working, we would not have had the close relationship that we had. She was my best friend and I was her best friend. That is the exact relationship that I want with my children.

I want my family to have a home, not a house.

Young woman are to..."love their husbands and children, be self-controlled, pure, submissive to their own husbands, working at home, kind, and the word of God may not be reviled." - Titus 2: 4-5

Proverbs 31: 10-31
A Wife of Noble Character
10 [b]Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

13 She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.

19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm[c] clothes.

22 She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.

28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

Finding Joy in the Winter Months

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
