I've been thinking a lot about my life, God, family, friends and my blog. (In no particular order.) I've also been reading Seth Godin's small is the new big and Donald Miller's A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. And I wanted to clear that air a bit (perhaps my conscience more than anything) about why I am writing this blog and hopefully inspire some of you.
I love God. Sounds silly to write on a craft blog huh? But that's what I've been thinking about. I write this blog not because I have a big ego, as Mr. Godin points out that many bloggers do, or because I think my crafts, home or DIY projects are great - but because God has given me a passion, many passions. I want to honor Him by trying to tell a good story with my life instead of just watching others tell their story.
Many years ago, Oprah had a woman on her show that said, once she became a Mom she lost herself. She forgot who she was and what inspired her as she poured into everyone but herself. I don't want that to happen to me and before I began this blog, I was coming close. I was peeking into the lives of many others who create and blog instead of doing it myself. So now I blog because God created me to be many things, including a Mom. I blog to honor God, as a creative outlet, to do instead of be, to inspire creativity and passion in my kids and to inspire others. I am living what I love and this is all a dream come true for me. Have a dreamy weekend! xo
