I just wanted to give y’all a head’s up as to why the blog has been a bit more quiet lately. As you know, I have been putting out 4-5 posts a week, but to keep up that schedule requires full time attention. First of all my full time attention has to go to my kids and household. And, in order to do what I feel God calls me to, I need to create a balance. A balance between homeschooling, homemaking, and being the wife and mother I am called to be. Then my blogging and writing endeavors have to come after that.
I have a dream…
But I have been holding back from pursuing my dream of writing ebooks. I have literally been talking about writing ebooks since 2008. Yes, that long! What have I been waiting for? I am not sure. But there comes a time, when you decide to lay aside some things to pursue a dream that keeps popping up and won’t go away. The time has come for me to move forward.
So why books and not just a blog? I love the compiling good information, inspiring ideas, and practical tips into nice small packages that you, the readers can benefit from. As a natural born researcher, I sometime grow weary of scouring the internet to find the information I am looking for. While I love blogs, I also love a book that brings it all together for me.
I figured if this is a need for me, it most certainly must be for others as well!
I am going to be writing books on a variety of subjects that will hopefully inspire you and encourage you along the way. I am hoping to have my first book out within the next month!
Part of the dream is being fueled by the fact that I also work online to bring income for our family. We want to be debt free and in our household it is necessary for me to supplement my husband’s income in order for this to happen. We are also just like all other families with growing kids and growing needs. Needs like braces, and college, and keeping food on the table seem to be coming at us all the time. Go figure!
For a while I have been praying and asking God what direction to take my writing and efforts. Asking Him to make them fruitful and worth my time. So for now at this moment in time, ebooks is what I will be pursuing. These books will support the blog content as well. It will all work together. I will still be blogging here 2 days a week when possible. So if you like what you read here, you will most likely enjoy the book variety I am planning to bring out as well!
So stick around good things are yet to come!
Dream on my friends!
