Drum Roll Please..........

Ta-Da! My first post on my new blog! Welcome to our little corner of the world. I am Jennifer, married to Austin, and we have three adorable kids: Luke (01-05), Chloe (06-06), and Jacob (04-08). Life is pretty crazy around here these days, but we are loving every minute of it.....okay, most of the time. :)

Six months ago, I didn't even know what a blog was. The term "blog" still sounds funny to me. One day, while doing some internet searching, I stumbled upon a blog about living frugally and now I'm hooked! I have been challenged, encouraged, and inspired through the few blogs I read.

ne night, through a few links from one site to the next, I clicked on a blog title that sounded good: Divine Calling. I found out our children were very close in age and we shared the same heart for our families. I was surprised to see we both lived in Georgia, so I decided to drop her a short email. Long story short, we live about 20 minutes from each other and get together often. I consider her one of my dearest friends. God used her blog to answer my prayer for a like-minded friend whose passion was God and family. Isn't God good?!

When Austin suggested I start a blog, I initially laughed it off. "I'm not a writer. I'm terrible at punctuation. What would I write about? No one wants to hear what I have to say." (I think he wants me to jump on my soapbox here rather than when he's trying to go to sleep.) But the more I thought about it, the more the idea intrigued me. I started playing around on Blogger and well- here I am!

Let me be the first to say, we are a normal family with normal struggles. I am a nothing more than a rotten sinner who has been miraculously saved by the marvelous grace of God. He has placed in me the desire to serve Him in all I do. I fall short daily and have to die to self daily, sometimes minute by minute. Sometimes I don't do so well at dying to self-other times, I don't die at all. I am continuously seeking His help and His grace.

Through this blog I hope to share a little about our personal lives, as well as make you smile, encourage you, and challenge you (In a good way!). It is my prayer that at least one life will be helped by something I might have to share. Until next time, here are a few family pictures for you to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!
