Hi! I am so glad you are here. I am the proud wife of Jonathan and momma of FOUR little Girls! I am also the editor and founder of For Girls Like You Magazine. I want you to know that am dedicated to providing safe, fun entertainment for your girls and praying to be a resource for you. BUT first let me explain somethings, ha!…
…you probably need to know that I am not one of those extremely happy, incredibly spiritual, homeschooling super moms (although I wish I was). I, like many, am just a grown up little girl who dreamt of one day becoming a wife and of course a mommy.
“Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift? The fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warriors fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth. Oh, how blessed are the parents with your quivers full of children!”
Unfortunately, during the beginning of my journey into motherhood, I looked at my situation and all I could see was dirty diapers, growing piles of laundry and chicken fingers. I was living a life that I had only wanted in theory. The details of my reality did not match my dream, and certainly did not resemble a “gift.”
I can not recall an exact moment, but thankfully something changed! Not my situation but my perspective. With each new baby girl, the piles of laundry only grew larger, the dirty diapers got messier and the chicken fingers, well they made their way onto the table more frequently. However, at the same time my smile was growing bigger and laughter began to make itself at home!
As we spend some time together here, I challenge you to join me in adjusting our perspectives. Let’s begin reaping the benefits of all God created our journey to be!
