Hi, I’m Truth in Love Mama!
Allow me to introduce myself…
Obviously, I’m a mom. I have two beautiful, spirited, hilarious children.
And a beautiful, spirited, hilarious husband.
I love reading, spending time with my family, going for walks, and cooking. I sing with my kids every day- they’re not old enough yet to realize how off-key I am. I dabble in gardening, crocheting, and canning. It is my dream to have our own homestead one day. I’m a horrible procrastinator and a mediocre housekeeper trying to overcome years of bad habits. Plants, especially flowers, always make me smile. I can research for hours and hours upon end, to my own detriment (did I mention I’m a procrastinator?). Because of my love for reading and learning, I thought I might share what I find on my journey with you!
The most important thing I have found is hope. My life is a mess! Until a little while ago, I didn’t think that would ever really change. My relationship with my husband was toxic. I kept family and friends at a distance. I was continuing the cycle of angry parenting that I had vowed to never inflict on my own children. And after the birth of my second child, my health started to deteriorate. I was moving from numbness to despair, and no amount of self-effort was helping. I woke up every morning feeling a little bit worse than the day before.
But God! He had been drawing me to His Son for a long time, and I was finally desperate enough to heed His call. I surrendered my life to the Savior I so badly needed. I started actually reading my Bible and going to Christian counseling. And by the grace of God, I am being transformed by the renewing of my mind.
So, I hope that while you’re here you find some encouragement and helpful information. Here’s what you can expect to hear from me currently: I’m super focused on strengthening my relationship with my husband and improving my parenting. I have stopped my son’s eczema outbreaks and am now trying to heal his food sensitivities (as well as addressing my own health problems) through natural living and healthy food. Next up is readying myself for homeschooling my daughter. Most importantly, I’m going to continue to work out my salvation with fear and trembling. I hope whatever you learn while you’re here is a blessing to you.
Let’s seek out the truth together!
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:1-5
