Countless emails and brainstorming sessions over the past few weeks have brought to life a fun new project. I am so excited to announce that I’ll be working with Erin (Blue Eyed Bride), Kelly (Kelly’s Korner) and Courtney (Lil Light O’ Mine) to bring you Build ‘Em Up.
Motherhood is a blessing and the hardest job you will ever have. There will always be places we can turn to talk about the “negative parts” of motherhood but we want to shed light and encourage. We want to help all of us be part of a sisterhood. We want to drop the judgment and build each other up.
Blogging about life and writing our story sometimes seems lost in a sea of negativity. A storm of unruly toddlers, a stack of messy dishes, laundry rooms that bid us to shut the door, rather than come inside. We’ve all been there, life is messy at times. I’m afraid that we’ve somehow magnified the messy and allowed it to overshadow our joy. Being a mother, a wife, a friend, a co-worker each have tough moments, but if we are willing to look closely we will see that those moments are few and pale in comparison to the blessings each role brings us.
Will you join us in committing to write about the good? To break the misconception that good equals perfect, and to seek out the meaningful even in the midst of the mundane. Please join us.
Every other week we will have topics that pertain to being a wife or mother (or even for those who aren’t in that stage but one day might be). We would love for you to link up as we talk about all aspects of motherhood and life as we want to strive to be an encouragement to each other. We are all in this together – so let’s build each other up!
March 12- Bringing Faith to Life
March 26- The Joy of Playing With Our Kids
April 9- Remembering YOU- taking care of yourself and keeping your identity
April 23- Friendships and Motherhood- encouraging friends, making friends, getting out of our comfort zone and finding friends
I can’t wait to see what y’all write about and be encouraged by each one of you.
Welcome to Life In The Green House. Green because it's our last name, not because of a reduced carbon footprint. I started this blog to keep everyone up-to-date once Braylen arrived and it has since become much more. In essence this blog is a snapshot of our life, an extension of my need to talk all day long. I'm saved by His grace, a wife and mother, incurably southern, blonder than nature intended and a lover of all things caffeinated.
