I have been on a journey now for some time. I didn't really realize I was on a journey, but I was. Know that I have realized my journey I feel so much joy. This is not a short journey, nor is it one that is easy.
I have not always been happy in my life. I have my sob stories like anyone else. But, for about four years now, I have been happier than ever. I haven't really sat down and thought about why, but now I know why. When my son was born I started going to Church more regularly. My praying increased and I started realizing that I had a great life. I may not be rich or loved by all, but I was happy. I didn't need all the extras in life. I was happy with what I had.
In June I started blogging. I thought this blog would be a way to help me keep track of all the things my son was doing that amazed me. It turned out that this blog has doing way more than that. I have found others who have blogs that really made me think. I always had a special place in my heart for God and all that I knew of him. But, I realized that I was searching for more. I wanted to become closer to God in a way I have never been before. I want my life to reflect my love for God and to give him praise for what he has given me.
I have been on a journey now to become closer to God for some time. My happiness has increased and my realization of all that I have because of God has increased. I have a long way to go on my journey, but now I know which way to go and how to get there. My journey may take the rest of my life, but it's a journey I will gladly accept. I want to be as close to God as I can.
I have a few people to thank for helping me along the way. I may not have known that they where helping me at the time, but they did and still do. My family has helped, but I have come across a few special Ladies who blog about God and have guided me along the way. They don't know me from anyone else and we have never met, but God has given them a gift to help others. I am one of those others.
A Big Thank You To:
Julie at Come Have a Peace
Your blog has made me think of new and better ways to think about everyday things that happen in my life. To realize that God has a hand in it all, and to praise him for it.
Heidi at Resting in the Mystery
Your blog has shown me that I can have a family life that is blessed by God and overflows with his love. In this day and age it's hard to have a successful family life that includes God, but you have shown that it's possible. You give me courage that I can raise my son to know the Lord and love him even more than I do.
Courtney at Women Living Well
Your blog has reminded me of why I love God so much. You have taught me to love my husband better and be more of a Christan Woman, Wife, and Mother. I didn't know if those could all be achieved at once, but you have continually showed me that it can. I love your message to always walk with the King!

Your blog has been the one that first showed me that their are still others out there that follow God. Your love of Christan books and your honest reviews have given me lots of new reading material for me and my family. Not all children's books are created equally.
With the help of these great Women I have come further along on my journey to become closer to God. I have a long bumpy road to go, but I will continue on. The rewards along the way are so great!
