Back to posting :)

If you don’t mind posts that only take a few minutes and may not be all that “refined”, you’ll have a bit more to read here.
My husband has been asking me for weeks….okay, maybe months (not proud of this)…to post more updates.  I stopped updating as much as I felt it was taking too much time….something that I want to use as best I can.  But when my husband wants me to use my time doing something that I’m not doing, making excuses isn’t an option.  So while I have tried this and that to find time to update more, it hasn’t happened.  Tonight I thought…I just need to do it.  The Lord just wants us to obey and then He will bless and what I have found is He often multiplies my time when I use it in the way He directs.

Soooo all that to say, hi! 
  When I think  of what is on my heart to share with others, I think of 4 main areas:

*Missions-  I LOVE missions!  Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others; discipling and teaching others in the Word of God; life on a foreign field; stories of what God is doing here

*Home School/Teaching-  I LOVE to teach!!  I LOVE home schooling my children!  When I was a little girl and people would ask me what I wanted to do when I grew up (not sure if I’ll ever really grow up J ), I always said 3 things…. I want to be a wife/mother;  I want to be a missionary;  I want to be a teacher.  I always hoped the Lord would allow me to have one of those “dreams”.  He gave me ALL of them! 

*Encouraging others-  The Lord is so good and so faithful and teaches me so many things.  I LOVE sharing what the Lord is doing in my life with others!  I love giving Him the glory and encouraging others. 

*Family- I LOVE my family!  I really, really love my hubby!  I love our children!  I am so blessed!

Half of the time, when I think I should update, I just can’t think of what to share….I have so much I’d love to share and just can’t decide.  I can’t decide what to eat when my husband takes me out for a date.  I just want him to choose for me.  Drives him nuts! J  So I came up with a plan...

*Missions Monday- Posts about the work here in Mexico
*Teaching Tuesday- Home school posts; day in the life posts; teaching ladies and children
*Who or What you can pray for Wednesday-  Often times people want to pray for a missionary, but aren't sure what to pray about.  God loves to hear and answer prayer and we'd love to share some specific things you can pray about with us.
*Thursdays Thoughts- What the Lord has laid on my heart or is teaching/has taught me
*Family Friday- Posts about our family

I know….I can hear Daniel right now, “Babe, (that’s what he calls me ;) )….you are such an extremist.  You go from posting once every blue moon to wanting to post 5x a week.”  I know, I know.  But sometimes if I just have a goal, it’s easier to stick to it than having none at all in which I do nothing. I figure I can't post any less really. ;)  
So, the posts may be short or long.  Most of the pictures will probably be off my phone.  But I love pleasing my hubby J  And for those who are interested, I would love to continue to share what the Lord is doing here!  He is so wonderful!  

See you mañana J
