I cannot thank you enough for writing so openly & honestly about your trials and struggles...seriously! It is such a breath of fresh air & gives so much hope and freedom. As a SAHM of 2 under 3 I am constantly going through many of the same things you talk about and I am always pointed back the Lord at just the right time! :) thanks so much!

I don't remember how I stumbled upon your blog but I am so glad I did. Your love for Christ shines so brightly in what you write and it is a joy to read about what God is teaching you! I think that sometimes people are silent on blogs because they wonder if they are welcome in that space or not. I have felt that myself sometimes. So I do appreciate your welcoming words. ;) My husband and I trusted in Christ when our oldest daughter was four. She is now seventeen. We have seven children, five girls and two boys. We are waiting for God's timing as we look for a place to serve him as pastor (and family). Much of what you write resonates with me as I am also growing in his grace through the things I experience every day in my home. He is using it all to mold and shape me and to glorify himself. Many blessings to you and thanking God for the richness of your faith. :)
Here is my latest post, a love letter to my husband: http://by-his-grace.blogspot.com/2013/02/even-after-all-ups-and-downs-i-love-you.html
