I am not sure why I have chosen to blog because letting people in, much less possible strangers, into my very sheltered world is very out of character for me. However, I have been feeling very convicted to step out of my comfort zone and do something more with the life that I have. While I don't know exactly what I am suppose to do just yet, I feel that creating a blog and letting others into my sheltered life is a place to start. I am an ordinary wife, mother, and friend with failures and inadequacies that have keenly made me aware that I need God to help me overcome them. I pray this blog will show how I TRY to live a very frugal but fulfilling life and how I try to say yes to God's assignment for me daily. I have no idea where God may be taking this ship, but I am prepared to go where it goes. And when my failures or inadequacy has taken me off His path, I know I can cry out "mayday mayday" to get me back on track.
