If you are reading this page, it means you somehow stumbled across it while searching through my blog. Maybe you really are interested in who the person behind this blog is, or maybe you just clicked on a link and arrived here . . . I don’t know, but here you are, and here I am trying to tell you who I am.
I am a work in progress.
There are a lot of things I could tell you about myself.
I could tell you about my family . . . . My husband and I have five boys . . . currently 16, 13, 11, 9, & 6. They are growing way too fast. Of course, we knew they would grow way too fast . . . everyone is always warning us that they grow way too fast and, yes, indeed, they are growing way too fast.
I love my boys, but being their mom is not always easy. In fact, it is never easy. I mess up. A LOT. I wish I could say that I had perfect mom moments all the time, but that would be an outright lie. In all honesty, I lose my temper, say the wrong things, refuse to say the right things, sit at my computer instead of spending time with them . . . far too often. I see them growing up and I know my time with them is limited, yet I still mess up. I write blog posts with fun activities to do with kids, but I still feel like I don’t spend enough time with my own kids. I am far from perfect when it comes to being a mom. In fact, I would say that I am a work in progress.
I could tell you about my job. A little over a year ago I started working as a children’s librarian. I work part time at the library. I also recently started serving as an event coordinator for our local Pregnancy Resource Center, which is really, really part time . . . and I homeschool four of our kids. No, I am not amazing. You might say, “I don’t know how you do it.” You know what? I don’t know how I do it. I am still trying to figure out how to do it. Sometimes when I get home, all I want to do is sit and do nothing. Absolutely nothing. I have mastered the art of sitting on the couch, eating ice cream and watching Netflix. Like I said, I am a work in progress.
Then there’s this blog. When I first started this blog, I had dreams of becoming an internet sensation over night. Guess what? It didn’t happen. For months, I would check my blog stats every day only to see that a handful of people (if any) had actually visited it. More people are visiting it now (so glad you’re here), but I would say I am far from an internet sensation. I really do care about everyone who visits this blog, and I am sooo humbled that people are actually using the lessons and ideas that I write here . . . but I also want people to know that I am just an ordinary person. That I am, truly, a work in progress.
Aren’t we all works in progress?
But the work that I am is being formed and molded by the One true King . . . the King of Kings.
If He can use ordinary, imperfect, messed up me and my silly little blog, He can use anyone.
He can even use you.
