Why my blog is called "Embracing the Season:"
I've been in seasons of financial abundance, seasons of financial question, seasons of singleness, marriage, parenthood, seasons of physical illness, seasons of strength. One regret looking back is living in the "when" throughout a lot of my life. WHEN I feel better, WHEN I get married, WHEN morning sickness is over.... So my goal and my daily reminder is that God has me in this season for His purposes to produce what He desires in me. So I'm still soooo not there yet, but I am trying to embrace my season. Gratefully, it's a process.

My current "seasons:"
  • I am in a season of connection: I have become a part of group of women who really care about me and challenge me to be a better wife, mom and follower of Christ 
  • I am in a season of pursuing: I am pursuing more natural food, more natural medicine, natural ways of decorating / renovating.
  • I am in a season of home-making: We just bought a house a little over a year ago.  It is great to make changes that we decide ourselves (we've been renting various houses since 2006).
