The name of this blog suits me well for one main reason.
I've always been a talker.As a child and as an adult. Talking is one hobby that has never wavered. I could talk, and talk, and talk some more.
I was the child who came home with report cards that said I talked too much. I started talking to my friends on the phone as soon as my parents allowed.
Even now, I can dominate a conversation (ahem...and often do) and have to practice self-control to NOT talk. I leave book club many months feeling guilty for interjecting my opinion too much.
I am learning to be a better listener without always thinking about something else to say to add to a conversation.
So when I wanted a more light-hearted fun blog title that well-suited me, I think I hit the jackpot!
I haven't been writing my words in this space very often lately. Therefore, it may look like in all actuality I don't talk a lot, at least on the blog.
The past few years have been a whirlwind of activity in my life that has also been a roller coaster of emotions that left me feeling very high at times, but also very low. Life has been unsteady.
Plus there is a lot going on in my real life, on the other side of this screen, that I don't want to miss. I am a wife, I am a homeschooling mom to four children, I am a friend, I participate in many activities locally, and this year I launched a non-profit ministry for foster and adoptive moms.
Life can feel very full.
And sometimes blogging is something I want to do but just can't fit into my schedule on a given day. I am trying hard to say yes to the best things in life in this season, unfortunately, some days I have to say no to good things to do that (like blogging).
I wanted you to know that I am indeed still a talker. And I wanted to be sure you are connected with me in the ways that I am found talking online:
- I'm on facebook. You can "Follow Me" or be my friend.
- I LOVE Instagram! I've started sharing weekly goals each Monday (#MondayGoals) and a recap of my week on Sundays (#SundayRecap).
- Together in the Trenches started a podcast and I host often!!! It is another way our ministry aims to breathe life into weary foster and adoptive moms. But families and friends are finding it encouraging and informative too! We are on iTunes and Stitcher and post each podcast on our site too! Plus we still have our weekly encouragement newsletter that I contribute to as well.
I wanted you to know that the last few weeks I have been wanting to get back into the habit of blogging. I don't know what it will look like yet and it probably won't be regular. But I hope to start writing here more.
I have so much in my heart that I'd love to share. I'm just navigating what that looks like in this season of my life.
