So many times the past few months, I have had thoughts come to my mind that have made me want to write. I have tried doing a family blog before, but I need to do something with more depth. I am starting this blog to record my feelings about life, faith, family, marriage, home schooling, gardening, friends, and anything else that sparks inspiration in my life. I have titled by blog “With My Hand in Thine,” a phrase from one of my favorite hymns, “I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go.” I love the thought that I can make this journey in life with the Lord by my side, helping me along the way. I am never alone! With my hand in thine also implies that we are in this together, that I am doing His will and have sought his counsel and guidance, something I hope to always do.
A little about me: I am a stay-at-home mom to six wonderful children. I have been married to my husband for 20 years and love my marriage! While our relationship isn’t perfect, it really is the happily-ever-after I imagined as a young woman dreaming of married life. Steve is a hard worker and loves me just the way I am. For this, I am so grateful. I have home schooled my youngest three boys for the past two years. I have loved this! I will write more about schooling in future blogs, but I have learned so much about education and learning the past few years–I don’t think I can ever go back to the “old” way.
