Who posts on this blog?:
My name is Amy. I’m the mother of two girls, wife of a husband who makes me feel like he is my biggest fan and supporter, home-schooling mom, former college instructor– but not a scholar by any means, a convert to the Roman Catholic faith, an amateur musician (my voice is my primary instrument, the flute secondary and the guitar follows way behind). Most importantly, I’m a woman trying to grow in grace and love like Jesus.
What is this blog about?
The majority of this blog is about my faith journey. The rest relates to my family and friends. The title expresses my heart. It’s my prayer that everything I think, say and do in my life will be motivated by and done with love. For if I have not love I am nothing but a clanging symbol (1 Cor. 13:1).
Where is this blogger from?
I’m a second-generation native Floridian living in the town in which I grew up. I left the state for a while to attend grad school in Louisiana but returned 15 years ago to teach at the local college.
When do I post?
Whenever life lets me. My husband and kids come first so I blog when I can fit it in. I’ll occasionally take time off in order to manage life but I can’t stay away for too long. Writing is therapeutic for me and cheaper than other forms of therapy (i.e. real therapy or sitting on a tropical beach therapy — the latter being my personal favorite).
Why do I blog?
Besides needing a cheap form of therapy…I blog because I’ve been saying for years that I want to write but I’ve never gotten around to it. I tend to need some external motivation to practice this discipline (or any discipline for that matter).
I also blog in order to update distant family and friends about all that is going on in our lives. Perhaps one of the greatest motivations for this blog is to have a record of my thoughts and my faith journey for my children. While few people will ever read this blog, it’s my hope that my girls will get a glimpse into who I am and who I’m striving to be through some of what I write.
