I first learned about blogging two years ago while we were waiting for the adoption referral of our daughter Ella. While I could not sleep at night I would read other families stories about how they journeyed through adoption. It was such an encouragement to me to read of these families who also loved the Lord and felt they were obeying God’s commands to care for the orphan in this way.
Blog hopping from the adoption blogs led me somehow to Kim @ Lifesong. She was the first non-adoption blog that I read daily. Her sweet spirit and love for the Lord inspired me to be a better wife and mom. From her I found many others that have been such jewels (Lisa Writes, Deo Volente, One Day More). Reading these womens' blogs were such an encouragement to my walk as a wife and mother. So in March 2007 I took the plunge and started my own blog. I was surprised at how scary it was. Who would read it? What if no one read it? This was my first post.
I will not bore you with more links to my daily reads since they are all listed on the side bar, but there are some others that I have found that even though I do not read every day, I still enjoy dropping in from time to time depending on what I am looking for.
Aroma of Joy - (I found Joy through Jamie)
Diary of a Stay at Home Mom - Lots of yummy recipes!
The Organizing Junkie - Lots of organizing helps
Bring the Rain - Most of you know about this one already, but she blesses my socks off
So there you go, those along with the ones in my side bar, they make blogging fun and worthwhile. I have a whole other list for homeschooling helps ;o)
