new weekly features


One thing I have discovered is that the more I blog, the more I write, the more I figure out what I actually want to write about. It's also been part of the journey of discovering who I am, but that's a different post entirely. For now, I wanted to share with you some of the things I have planned for the blog, some weekly features.

One of the original reasons I started writing this blog was to encourage other women in their walk in marriage, because it has always been something I have been passionate about. I realized that I haven't done as much of that as I would like to, so that's about to change. Maybe it's the fact that Valentine's is fast approaching and I'm getting the itch to string paper hearts all over our house, but it's definitely been on my heart to share more marriage related posts with you all.

This is going to be a feature post every Sunday (I know! Posting on weekends, gasp!). God's word is meant to be shared, not kept to ourselves, so I'm planning each Sunday to share some verses with you, maybe share my thoughts on them, and also hear what you have to say about it.

It's no secret that music can be life changing for some people. You hear a song come on the radio, and sometimes it just perfectly describes your current situation and the way you are feeling, now. I recently saw a friend's post on Facebook where she said, "No one writes music about real things anymore." I was so taken back, because I feel like so much of the music I listen to touches my heart every day, so I wanted to start sharing some songs and musicians that I think are just awesome.

This is going to be a new feature called The Wednesday Weekly. Kind of reminds you of a newspaper title? Good, that was my plan. There are so many inspiring and creative bloggers out here, I am always amazed at what people are writing and sharing. So, I want to help share the love and maybe introduce you to a blog you don't yet know, and also just to be encouraging to my fellow bloggers and just say, "Hey, I love what you're doing."

Happy Monday!

  8. Haha, well good luck coming up with your titles. Since Saturday is still a few days away I haven't officially thought up the title for my song posts. I asked hubby's opinion and he said "Song Saturday" I said, mhmm, because that's so original! Haha. Although that may be what I resort to! We'll see! Best of luck to you!
