New year, new you, new activities for your kids. Is this is the year that Sam wants to learn to play the violin? Or Suzie wants to take up dancing? Or you need to find John a new lacrosse camp? It can be tough navigating all the options for classes, programs and camps. In 2018, let other moms…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
GabbingwithGrace.com is my personal blog.
I am, in fact a Minister & a Mama. All content is filtered of course, through my faith as a Jesus-follower.
Here’s the dealio: GabbingwithGrace.com is about…
1. Life. I write about life as a wife, Campus Minister with InterVarsity, an aspiring writer, a Masters of Divinity student & a Mama to two precious boys. In 2010 I had it bad with depression and still struggle in various ways. I talk about it. I’m hoping my small contribution on the interwebs can reduce the stigma.
2. My oldest son Ransom (R1) is 5, so lately I’ve been writing a lot about how we are parenting him in our faith as Jesus followers. I love filling my posts with pictures of him and his sweet little rambunctious baby bro, Rhys (R2) and all the hilarity that ensues.
3. I am racially biracial. I write about what that feels like. It’s frackin’ confusing, y’all! I reflect on how I process news and culture through the eyes of an ethnically identifying black woman.
4. I change my hair a lot. I post pictures of each major change. Hair -while a giant pain in the butt- is fantastically fun.
5. Of the top 5 goals of my life I choose to do what I can to play a role in caring for the poor and alleviating the plight of the suffering. I like to write posts about small (and big) ways my blogging community can be advocates for suffering people all over the world.
6. I love fashion. I’m an artsy-fartsy creative type and I love the creative possibilities that shoes, clothes, make-up, hair and handbags can give to one on any given day. I love posting tips on how I have become the best bargain shopper ever. Not to gloat or anything. =)
7. Growth. Spiritually, emotionally, physically, marriage-wise, parenting-wise, leadership-wise, etc. I firmly believe all human beings should be committed to our own personal growth. Every now and then I share tips and techniques of how I am attempting to grow in various areas of adulthood.
I’m struggling. Struggling with what? You say. Easy: how to grow as a home-owner, as a Susy-domestic, as a savvy financial manager and on and on. I blog about it. About how one day I hope I can grow something organic, or meal plan or heck, even keep my house clean.
(More often then twice a month, y’all).
8. Lament. No one, and I mean no one can lament like this one right here. I am known to take to the interwebs with stress and complaints at how exhausting it can be to juggle the travel of a life in ministry in partnership with your husband, while trying to parent my kiddos, create a loving, stimulating family environment alongside my goals, hopes and dreams to get my Masters of Divinity, be ordained in the Reformed Church of America, become an author and grow my blog.
(Don’t say I didn’t warn you)!
