My Story

Welcome!

Well, welcome to the few who read this. This isn’t a widely advertised blog, in fact, very few get told about it. I wanted a place to write down the lessons I have and am learning since my move to Kansas. I wanted a place to document growth in my life and to acknowledge what the Lord has done for me. A way to look back and see where I’ve changed in my thinking or what I’m focusing on. I wanted a place that I didn’t have to worry about what my handwriting looked like, or not being able to change notebooks when I decided I liked the look of another better. And online is great because I write whenever I think of something and I can change the theme anytime I want to.

You’ll find some posts written by me and “REPOSTED” posts from blogs that I love. For my posts, they’re really just me thinking “out loud”. Sometimes I have trouble conveying what I want to those close to me (i.e. those reading this) so this can let them in on what I’m thinking. I love having a way to retain those blog posts that I find that I love. They are often articles of things I have thought about, but don’t know how to put it into spoken or written form. I have gotten into a pretty good schedule of posting my thoughts on Wednesdays and doing a “REPOSTED” article on Saturdays.

If you’d like to read more about why I moved to Kansas, here’s that article.

If you’ve read a post or article and want to talk to me about it, please do! I try to always put the original link to the REPOSTED articles so if you find one that doesn’t have it, please let me know!
