I saw a GREAT movie over the weekend--Facing the Giants. Just wanted to recommend everyone to go see and support this movie. I wish we had more movies like this. My 8-year-old son said that it was his favorite movie, and it made me cry--more than once. Go check it out at facingthegiants.com. A church in Georgia produced this movie, with two of its ministers writing and directing it. It's an amazing story.

I love autumn! Simply walking out in the crisp, cool air brings a flood of memories for me--Tennessee football games at Neyland Stadium, traveling to volleyball tournaments in college, jumping in leaves, bonfires, back to school excitement. I feel that autumn more and more represents my time in life. To me, Spring represents the newness and growing time of childhood. Hot summer days full of activity and play remind me of youth and early adult years. At thirty-three, I feel that I still have the energy of summer, but am moving into a more peaceful, settled time of autumn. Peaceful and settled in a sense of being comfortable in my own skin, not having to search for who I am. I feel grounded in who I am, and that feels great. In many ways, this is the most exciting time of life!

Over the past several months, I have been fascinated to discover blogging. What a creative way to build community long distance! I have been challenged and encouraged to read about the journey of other young Christian wives and mothers, both stay-at-home and working outside the home. This blog will be my attempt to share my experiences and what God has taught me through them in hopes of encouraging other women. I know, though, that through this process of self-reflection that God will grow and stretch me as well! Here we go . . .
