When I was in college, I spent a year as a volunteer DJ at the radio station. My weekly slot on the radio was quite different from most stations. I’d start by playing a Disney medley, follow it with a country ballad, and finish the quarter with a heavy metal mosh-pit favorite. My taste in music has always been very wide and very random, and it certainly has never steered me wrong. I actually won an award for my show for playing the best variety, and it was my weird taste in music that sparked courtship with my husband.
This story is the best way to describe what I hope to accomplish with this blog. I want to write a blog that showcases a mixed bag of styles. I hope this blog will serve as an outlet for my creative writing, as an encouragement to other moms, and as a journal to vent and reach out to others. A mom blog yes, but some days I hope to share some short stories I have written or photographs I’ve taken. Other days I’ll hope to converse with debate and banter. And other days, I most definitely hope to inspire spiritually.
First and foremost, I am a child of God, and I have every intention to continue to put God first. I’m trying to figure out this mom life, I still want to follow my dreams, and I want to use my writing to help others as well. God gave me these talents and I don’t plan to waste them. Like it says on my homepage I go through each day with “a whole lot of grace.” I’m no expert and I have no desire to ever label myself as one. I just hope and pray that this blog will start something wonderful for myself and for others.
