Begin Again

Sometimes you need a fresh start.

For over ten years I hosted a blog at this address. Most often it offered nuggets of truth and humor from a stay-at-home mom with a strong Christian faith. Occasionally readers would find recipes, book reviews, and thoughts (often controversial) on current events or politics. Toward the end, it became home to Big Word Bible Studies, an in-depth, inductive exploration of books from the Old Testament.

As things in my personal life grew more complicated and challenging, the blog grew heavy. Overwhelming. I could no longer share honestly because it was too raw, too public, and too offensive to the others involved in my current trials. I chose silence over vulnerability.

I contend that was the right move. As Naddia Weber-Boltz once said:

“We should preach from our scars not our wounds.”

Lessons may come from bleeding, but wisdom comes from the healing.

Even so, I’ve missed this place. I’ve missed the space to process and record what God is showing me and doing in and through me. I want to come back, but I want to start anew. No baggage. No defined expectations.

I will not promise to blog regularly. Neither will I promise what you might get here. Some of those old posts may resurface in time and some of those lessons learned in the silent years will likely make an appearance eventually. In the meantime …

Hello. Welcome to my little, quiet, slow attempt to begin again.

      It’s too easy to disappear these days, isn’t it? HUGS to you, my friend! And CHEERS to resurfacing. 😉
