Hello, and WELCOME to Heaven In Our Homes! This week we are participating in a week long blog party, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. A general idea of what this is…. blogs from all over the world are invited to link to a main post, sharing their piece of blogging land with other moms!
For those of you new to HIOH, let me share a little about what you’ll find here. After I’m through rambling, you can read about today’s giveaway (and other ones as they are added throughout the week).
My name is Candace, and first and foremost I am a child of my God and Saviour! I am a 30 year old stay at home mom to 3 children, 1 with the Lord, and 1 arriving in less than 3 weeks – hopefully!
You will notice that all of the links on the sidebar aren’t up and going yet – I apologize. When my new template was built, I never had a free minute to repair these. BUT, I hope to have them up again – sometime (when I have nothing else to do). Again –
I have always been full of thoughts! My brain never stops. While I used to journal, I found my hands would cramp from all I had written. Then a friend opened up the world of blogging to me – WOW! I must say that I have now found my outlet.
I write as a way to express what God is doing in my life. I write my fears, concerns, heartaches, happiness, blessings – randomness and seriously. Basically, my blogs are my journals – they just have lots of strangers reading them.
I’ve learned many lessons from examples in my childhood – from my mom and other Christian ladies sharing what God has taught them in their lives. I have been able to avoid many a pitfall because of the messages/ testimonies these ladies have shared from their hearts.
I pray that one day as my daughter (or possibly daughters) looks back and reads my life story, that she will gain Godly insight and wisdom based on trials and lessons I have gone through. Life is by no means easy, to what a blessing it’s been for me to know that I’m not the only one going through hard times! We’ve all been there, and we all make it through – some just have a harder path.
With our newest baby due so soon, the direction of the blog will be changing for the next few months. While there is NO way in the world that I could cut of blogging (it’d be like cutting off my head!), I will be going to 1, but probably 2 postings a week.
Sundays – sharing on a certain verse that the Lord is ministering to me about (or hymn) AND a mid-week posting – sharing on what God is doing in my life right now (whether in a spiritual sense or just an update on our life in general).
As a special treat this week, I’ve had many wonderful ladies offer some gifts for YOU!! Join us each day as we have a new giveaway contest for you to participate in – each contest open for one week. Don’t miss out on our giveaways at www.Sonbeams.com AND www.NineMonthsorLess.com blogs as well!
