    My Dreams, My Goals

    This will be my last blog post. I have written on the subject of faith, family, health, and home for a long time (I started my first blog in 2007!).  As much as I enjoy writing, I have also struggled with letting it go and fully living out my life as a Biblical Homemaker. I’ve been here before.  I have been distracted by the idea of needing to accomplish more and doing “something” significant.

    How To Create A Purposeful Christmas

    I love this season.  The beautiful decorations, sipping hot chocolate with the children, holiday parties, classic movies, church events, and gifts make for a festive time of the year! Now that my husband and I have a young family of our own, we are responsible for creating traditions that will welcome this season with purpose and anticipation. Please note affiliate links are mentioned in this post, visit my full disclosure policy here. Pioneering your own traditions can be daunting.  At the start, I was pretty overwhelmed with creating new ideas that reflected a Christmas that focused on Christ  Choosing to focus on celebrating the birth of Jesus can be exciting and full of…
