Here we go!

My desire as I begin this blog is to be a "Titus 2" encouragement to other women. I certainly don't see myself as having "arrived," but I have experienced His faithfulness over and over in our lives.

We now have twelve children, but I distinctly remember when I found out that I was expecting our fifth baby. Our fourth was only 4 months old (the oldest was only 6) and while I was incredibly thrilled at the prospect of having another dear little baby in our family, I was feeling quite overwhelmed at the prospect of months of morning sickness. That morning as I spent time in God's Word (my quiet time), the Lord graciously led me to 2 Chron. 20:15 where I read: "thus says the LORD to you, 'Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God's." : )

That has become my rallying point, my calm in the midst of the "storm." As I am faithful to seek the Lord, He has been more than gracious to "fight the battle" for me, to give me all that I need to joyfully and graciously carry out all He has called me to do.

My desire is to encourage other women as He has encouraged me. Thus the blog.

Be encouraged. You are loved with "an everlasting love."
