It’s Time for the 2014 Ultimate Blog Party!

Today is the kick-off for the 2014 Ultimate Blog Party with 5 Minutes for Moms. Woo-hoo! I am in the mood for a party.UBP14-Invite-Readers

For those who are visiting welcome! For those that know me–just let me say how GRATEFUL I am that you are here. Join the fun and get a chance to read some great bloggers.

This year I started writing for 5 Minutes for Faith, a sister site of 5 Minutes for Mom. This month I am joining the team at MoretoBe and blogging for MilitaryNavs.

So this is me.

Military Family

Military Wife and Mom

I am  wife to a recently retired Marine. 24 years of active duty has taken us on many adventures. It has been a challenge and rewarding life. We are in the midst of transition in career and family. I am blessed to be mom to three wonderful kids who are growing up way too fast for me–two in college and one in high school. 

And sometimes this is me.

The spiritual instead of the practical is not conducive for  gourmet cooking.

The spiritual instead of the practical is not conducive for gourmet cooking.

Being the creative-kind of gal, sometimes work on the home front get’s overlooked. Can’t tell you how many meals have been a little overdone since I started writing.

This is me too.

And this is me–seeking to hear God’s wisdom and write what He reveals through His Word.

My God Ears are on!

My God Ears are on!

As a communicator, I enjoy speaking to women. As a singer and worshipper, leading worship is pure joy.  I love showing women how to get fully engaged in reading God’s word and worship.  This is one of my most popular posts: How to Meditate on Scripture.

I also like having fun with humor.

Goofy Girl + Teaching Ministry = A Laugh with a Lesson

Over the years, I have perfected the annoying tendency to make embarrassing mistakes and do air-headed things.  I am not proud of this, but all efforts to achieve perfection have fallen woefully short.

Long ago I gave up the dream of having it all together, and yet, I have learned that God can use every part of us – even the parts that do goofy things.

The Blog

On this blog, I explore the process where the spiritual and the practical intersect in daily life. You will find a variety of posts including devotions, Biblical wisdom,  how-to’s on spiritual growth, real-girl mistakes, and sharing life as it is–all with the focus of applying spiritual truth in the nitty-gritty of our day.  Whether serious, reflective, humorous, or down-right zany, sharing practical ways to learn and live God’s wisdom is the heart of this blog. Subscribe now so you don’t miss the fun!
