Why a blog?

For some time now, I've been thoroughly enjoying other ladies' blogs - blogs about families, blogs about simplicity, blogs about Christianity - you name it. While I don't claim to be a master of any of these areas, I do have thoughts and ideas that I would like to put down somewhere. A kind of therapy, you might say.

Let me introduce you to my family so you can see where I'm coming from. I've been married for 14 years to a wonderful, godly man who works hard so that I can stay home and homeschool our two beautiful children. Is our relationship perfect? Far from it! But it is based on the knowledge that God put us together in a truly miraculous way. But that's a story for another post. Our oldest child is Emily. She's 12 and a true blessing. Kind and helpful, she loves childen and loves to be creative. Our youngest child is Daniel, who's 10. He is a source of much joy and laughter in our home. He loves the Lord and loves to make people laugh.

And me? My name is Lori and my age shall remain a secret! (There are certain things a lady doesn't reveal, you know! You won't be learning my weight either!!) Like I've said, I am a homeschooling mom of two. We've always homeschooled - in fact, we decided while we were engaged that we would homeschool our children. I also run the bookstore at our church, serve in our local homeschooling support group, and spend a lot of time running my kids here and there. We are busy, perhaps too busy, but striving to slow down and find more time for each other. My biggest dream right now is to simplify our life so that we can focus more on God and more clearly hear His voice.

I hope you come visit again.

If you are really going to put yourself out there you should be honest and give us a age and weight! Also you might say why you only have two children while your wonderful brother has six beautiful blessings from God.

I was searching out cleaning information when I came across your blog. What encouraged me to post a comment was the one posted after your "why a blog" story. The person that wrote to you about having 2 blessings instead of 6, like your brother, is a cruel, narcissistic person. You should not allow anything that person says to you be alarming or hurtful. They do not have your best intentions in their response. Only mean ugly jealous trash to hurl at you. Hang in there and do what you want that brings you peace and happiness. God Bless
