Once upon a time there was a girl who made fun of her older sister for scrap booking. She giggled when the wiser, older sister asked her to use her font-like handwriting on the scrapbook page, so that it would look “nice” for all of eternity. She told her bigger, wiser sister that she could see how that older, more matronly lady would enjoy scrapbooking, since she had “so much time on her hands” as a stay-at-home mom. And “WOW!” She told her sibling, “This stuff sure costs a lot of money!” while, privately thinking, “What a waste.”
As it so happens, this young, 19 year old girl had just had her first seed planted. The first in a string of domestic seeds, that would eventually lead her down the path to this blog. To this life, of wifehood, motherhood, craftiness-hood (did I just coin a new phrase here?!)and a strong desire to create… anything… that would make her world a little prettier. Or easier. Or fun to spend time in.
This is the story of one girl who became a woman in today’s culture. Doing it the hard way, but creating a story along the way of God’s grace and sufficiency. And doing her best to point to Him all the way on her long journey… home.
Come along, and I’ll do my best to help you enjoy the ride.
