Lover & Follower of Jesus, Wife to 1 and Mumma to two kids under 3.
I’m a stay-at-home working mum, raising our kids whilst helping my hubby with his business as well as running my own.
I’m passionate about my faith, motherhood, business real relationships. This page is essentially my diary for all of it! A place to share my thoughts, learnings and flearnings (learning as I fail) as I navigate this thing called life. I’m so happy you’re here.
a bit more of the story
The Blog Purpose
The verse Colossians 3:23 has been a favourite since I began reading the bible, and has been the motto for how I want to live my life.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters”
When I first became a Christian I would write all of the time. I’d write pages sharing with God what I was thankful for, what I was learning in life and through His word, and what I was feeling in that moment. It helped me to process all that was going on in my life and kind of flowed into my prayer life as I found writing things out first helped when I couldn’t find the words to speak.
The desire to share parts of my life and life as it happens has always been a desire of mine, but either it hasn’t been the right season, I’ve let fear hold me back of what it might look like, or I’ve believed the lie that I’m not a great communicator.
But over these last few months I have felt a stirring in my spirit to start to write. These days everyone leads such busy lives, it’s hard to catch up or have truly deep conversations. I long for realness in relationships. Where questions about life, faith, parenting, marriage, work can be discussed freely and without judgement.
This blog is my obedient response to what I feel God leading me into. To stir up the desire to share, bust lies that tell me I don’t know how to, to process all that is happening in life right now, and connect with friends (new and old) on a truly genuine and real level.
My hope is that He will use it as a place for connection and encouragement. Where you can feel like you’re not alone, and that I can authentically share what I’m learning in my faith, motherhood, business and life.
I’m not putting any pressure on myself to share once a week, fortnight or month, as I want whatever I share to be authentic, timely and in season. But I’m excited about it. I’m thankful that you’re here for the ride and excited to continue to be challenged and guided so sweetly by the Holy Spirit out of my comfort zones.
Thanks for joining me!
With so much love, Jess
