I am so excited about starting a blog. I've wanted to a long time but kinda forgot about it after I tried to start one in September. A lot of things have happened since September I started attending a new church, my son turned six........hopefully I can write more tonight but mothering is calling me now.
First and foremost I am a Child of God, a Woman of Hope who loves Jesus with all her heart and wishes to share that hope with others. I am also a stay at home mom who earned a degree in social work. I love to read the Bible and continue to read about social work and psycholgoy and my other interests such as poetry, health and fitness, Christian literature and Afican-American culture. I like to increase my knowledge about other cultures particularly the African-American culture due to my son being biracial with my European Anglo heritage and his father's African-American heritage. I have been divorced for 4 years and my ex-husband has since passed and I find it a struggle and joy to raise my son with the help of my biological and church family. I love my church Spirit and Truth Ministries "The House of Radical Praise and Worship" located at 910 West Madison Street, pastored by Tracey and Sherma Shoemo. I can't help but believe God has called me to this House of the Lord, Spirit and Truth Ministries for "such a time as this." I would like to share with the readers of this blog my life experiences and testimony as I proceed as a woman of hope in an often hopeless world.
