A New Frontier....

So, here I am officially writing the first post on my new blog! I am actually surprising myself by launching into the blogging world. After several years of  some people near and dear suggesting that I write a blog, I finally feel that the timing is right and am taking the big plunge into the unknown. It will be a learning process for me, that's for sure!

It is my hope that in addition to having this space for an online journal of life's happenings, milestones, and everyday little anecdotes, that it may be an encouragement to those who choose to read it...if nothing else to hear about my hits and misses and know they aren't alone in the struggle to be fill the different roles of wife, mother, daughter, sister, or friend.

A bit about my family....we are followers of Jesus Christ. We strive to live our life in a way that would be pleasing to Him. My husband and I were brought together when I was just 17 years old and we got married soon after. We have been blessed with three children who continually keep life exciting and full of adventures. We began homeschooling this year and love it!

When I have any spare time, I could be found curled up with a book and a cup of tea or writing a letter. I like all things crafty, and love to beautify my surroundings through home improvement projects and decorating. I am constantly looking for ways to stretch the budget with creative frugality.

Some might assume that my life would be "mundane" or "boring", but that is not the case at all. I am constantly learning and growing, trying to live in the moment and absorb all I can from whatever comes along. There is never a dull moment around here! I am looking forward to having an outlet to share some of the thougths and ideas that are constantly running through my brain on any given day!

There will be certain boundaries that I won't cross in my writings, in respect to my family's privacy, but rest assured, that what I DO choose to share will be honestly true and heartfelt. Well, here goes nothing! :)


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging! Can't wait to read here daily!

  2. I'm hoping to blog daily. We'll see!

  3. What do you mean..."here goes nothing"? Dorothea, you are going to share your "heart", and that is "everything"!!! :) You are truly a born writer and as your blog proceeds, you will go back and read various entries---- and see that I am right. This is a wonderful adventure you are starting on and I simply can hardly wait to see where your life takes you.....:> Remember as the twists and turns get scarry/unpredctable/thrilling/hilarious/heartbreaking/beautiful etc., God is always with you in all of them. Thanks for letting us, the readers, take peeks too....... I can hardly wait!

  4. Ok, I should have phrased the ending differently---I get what you are saying, as I didn't mean it literally! :) Glad you finally got online to read the blog. I value your input, so I'm glad that you seem to like it thus far. Check back often!
