I wish I was the type of woman who stayed at home with the kids, cooked, baked, did the laundry, and decorated the house. I truly do. But that’s not me. I work. I go to school. I am so NOT a domestic goddess. My husband cooks 99% of the time, and he likes it. I love to bake, but I haven’t baked a thing in months. Laundry gets done when I can get to it, and home decor? Forget about it! So this won’t be that kind of blog.
What kind of blog will it be? It’ll be the blog of a wife, mother, Christ-follower, student, daughter, sister, and aunt writing about her hectic life.
On March 30, 2010, I became Mrs. Day. I married my first love, the very first boyfriend I ever had. I’m so thankful that God allowed us to reconnect over 20 years later! If you’d like to know more about our story,click here to head on over to Part One!
I went from being a single mom of a 9 year old son, to wife and stepmom of 5. Three Two of them live with us. They’re all boys. Yes. That’s right. I’m the only female in this house. It has it’s advantages, but sometimes I just have to leave and spend time with women! I do love being queen of the castle, though!
I’m a part-time college student with a full-time job. I teach Bible study for teens at my church. Teaching them God’s Word and watching them grow is my passion. I have a variety of interests. Knitting, crocheting, photography, blogging, reading, writing, singing, making jewelry, web design, bowling, football….and the list just keeps on growing. Do I have the time for these things? Not much at all. There are so many things I want to learn how to do. But I’m the queen of starting and then…blah. Pray that I can stick to something!
I love Jesus Christ completely. Following Him is not easy, but I wouldn’t trade this life for the one I had before He made me His. I’m committed to living my life in a way that represents Him well. That means I read what the Bible says and work to conform myself to it, and not try to make it justify the way I want to live.
I’m outspoken and direct. I don’t play games. I don’t sugarcoat anything. That’s not to say that I can’t say things nicely. I can. But to me, nice doesn’t mean lie. I despise dishonesty. The words “politically correct” are like poison to me. I love to laugh, and my sense of humor ranges from dry to slapstick. I just find a lot of things to be funny. I laugh often. and LOUD.
