Blessing by a blog??

I'm pretty sure those of us that blog have all had moments of, "why the heck am I doing this". I know I have...on a regular basis. I have to go back to that first month and see why and then take a look at some other blogs that made a difference for me and look over them.

I'm also pretty sure that we have all made some blogger friends that we can say without a doubt, God allowed us to find one another on here. And these blogger friends can pretty much make your day with a comment they leave, an email they send or just something they wrote on their blog.

I sit down and type away what's on my heart, hoping that maybe it might help or bless someone else...but never really thinking that through. And so when it does, it takes my breath away that God would use blogging as a source of encouragement and hope. And we're this big family spread out all over, and we have this kindred spirit among us.

There are a couple blogs I would love for you to take time and check out. There are so so so many amazing ones out there, and I follow several of them. But just for this post, I would like you to look at two different ones.
The first is Kelli's blog Living Life with E's. She's pretty much amazing. She has two adorable kids and her youngest, Emily, has Down Syndrome. They didn't find this out until after she was born. I pretty much am blown away by her. And I have learned that she is more blessed than most of us will be, because her daughter as DS. And if you don't believe will after reading through her blog.

The other blog is one I just started following and am still getting the whole story on. Claire at Fast Forward Girl isn't updating it too often at the moment because....well, you just need to go check it out! :) She is an amazing example of sacrifice and love and I think you'll love her story.


  1. Blogs are definitely a blessing, a lesson I am learning daily! I went and checked out these blogs, thanks for sharing! Even though I am new at the whole blogging thing, I am beginning to realize this is the case!

  2. Thank you for your sweet, sweet works and I checked out "Fast Forward Girl" and love what Claire and her husband are doing! I am following this one now too!

  3. I so understand what you are saying! My heart is to minister to other moms & families with little ones, yet in just the last couple of months that I have been blogging, I have often wondered if this is really what God wants me to be spending time on. Every time I begin to doubt, God sends along someone with a word of encouragement. Thank-you for your post, it blessed me today!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!

Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

It includes *…

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
