My name is Jo! My husband, Jamie and I have been blessed with 5 “Cubs” to bring up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord”. We live on a lake in the Deep South along with 2 dogs, 6 laying hens and 4 show goats. We are a Christian family who works hard and plays hard together!
Everyday life can be chaotic at times, which is why I began keeping a journal. It allowed me to unwind when I was stressed- as if writing it on paper was an easier way for me to communicate my true thoughts. I would also write about things that inspired me and encouraged my soul- songs and quotes that made an impact on me!
It wasn’t until I caught myself quoting my own journal entry to encourage a friend that I realized maybe, just maybe I could help encourage someone else if I began a blog. A very scary (yet truly exciting) thought! You see, I am NOT a people person. I prefer a one on one conversation verses a group discussion and through My eyes this blog is both!
My sincere desire is to share hope, encouragement, and a vision for family life (with all it entails) with you! I am just one person. A small light in a dark world. A whisper amid the shouting. But as long as its just You and Me, I want to extend to you the hand of friendship because in a world that is so densely populated, One can feel alone in their own day to day struggle and need a kind word of encouragement. As children of the Most High God, we are meant to spread the Joy of our Salvation! And I am finally ready to Spread:)
*curious to know how I titled this blog?
