Jump Right In

Starting a blog has been in my thoughts since way before my daughter was born. Then, when I quit my teaching job to be full time mama, I just knew I was going to get started right away. I had so many ideas about what I could share with other mamas. Now my daughter is 2 1/2…and this is my first blog post.

I kept waiting to have a big plan, to make my website look just right, to know exactly what I was doing, to have more time to be a perfect blogger; but all I really need to do is share my story.

I need to share my journey. How I had given up hope of ever being a mama. How the Lord promised me I would be one someday. And how finally becoming a mama rocked my world completely.

I need to share my everyday successes and struggles that are the rollercoaster of motherhood. How I’ve had to fight for the joy that I naively thought would be automatic. And how the joy that only comes from Jesus overcomes all obstacles.

I have no idea, at this moment, what my next blog title will be. I do not know how often I plan to post. I don’t have my site menu set up or the categories picked out. I have not even written my bio.

But now I have written my first blog post. I have taken that first step. I have thrown out the excuses and faced my fears. I am ready to take the plunge.

Dear readers (I’ve always wanted to say that), stay tuned for more of my story, which I hope will encourage all you mamas to seek joy for yourself and your families.
