Starting this blog 03/24/2012
I am definitely the kind of person that functions better when lists and organization are involved. I'm not a "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of girl. And I'm guessing that's why I've struggled over the last 10 months since becoming a stay-at-home mom. Having two children under 3 is anything but organized! Now that the initial shock is over, I think it's time to get this household in order so that I may serve God and my family to the best of my ability.
Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, I worked at a bank as their VP & Retail Manager. As part of my list of duties, I was responsible for policies and procedures. Using the DISC Personality Profile, I am at least 80% C (Conscientiousness) so this was right up my ally. After having my first child in September of 2009, I realized that "mommy brain" was a real thing and determined documenting my knowledge was critical. So the intranet pages and procedure manual developed. I loved creating it and loved having a place my staff could go to get help if I wasn't available.
I miss that as a stay-at-home mom. I miss having a place to jot down my thoughts and sharing them with others in hopes of helping them solve a problem. I love problem solving!! Sharing each others success and failures only enriches our lives and better equips us for Kingdom service.
I would like to use this blog to share my families success and failures as we journey through life and try to serve our Lord and Savior. I know that He has to be our focus as we do everything, from folding laundry to serving the homeless. So, I'm hoping this blog can help keep us accountable and focused on the real reason we do the things we do each day. I hope that you enjoy the blogs and I would welcome any feedback.
