Back to the Blogosphere


I first ventured into the Blogosphere eight years ago, as an experiment in one of my grad school classes.  I started Leewards as a single woman, working a full-time job, and found it to be an outlet to process some of the many musings and dreams of a twenty something.

My life situation has transformed in just about every way possible over the past six years.  New name.  New address.  New family.  New job.  And while it seemed, for a while, that the pace of the season was just too much to keep up with a blog (and besides, who wants to hear from one more Mom anyway), I’ve decided to try and make the space to once again reflect, relate, and rejoice with all that God has done and is doing around me.

So here is  And maybe I am just one more Mom, but I desire to fulfill that mission with intentionality and purpose.  Writing a blog will force me to step out of the sometimes mundane and monotonous world of a mom and recognize God’s Goodness and grace in even the simplest of moments.  Thanks for joining me , and I’d love to hear about your journey, too.

And special thanks to my husband and best friend, for literally making this dream a reality. If it weren’t for him, I’d still be sucked into the vortex of WordPress PlugIns and something called Widgets that together nearly caused me to throw my computer against the wall in frustration.  Thank you, Superman.  You’re my hero.
