My main goal in life is to serve God.
Of course, as I am human, I am not always successful at this. In fact, I have stumbled a lot. But, by God’s grace, I have progressed throughout this spiritual journey, and I’m getting closer to a point of completely and consistently relying on Him. (Except when I, like Peter, forget God’s power and, instead, focus on the waves around me. I’m still learning.)
I’m totally an introvert.
I enjoy keeping to myself most of the time, reading books, writing, playing the piano, and snuggling with my husband on the couch while we watch pro basketball on TV. I have many acquaintances, but only a few very close friends, and I’m okay with that. I’ve recently done some bits of research on introversion, and I do my best to promote it in a world that sees introversion as a downfall rather than an asset.
Someday I hope to be a stay-at-home mom.
I realize that this is not the norm in today’s society. I also realize that this has become difficult to do because of expenses. However, this is my dream, and, as long as God’s Will permits it, I will strive for it. As I do this, I am looking for avenues to make a little bit of income from home. I enjoy creating items with my Cricut, and I hope to sell more of these creations. I’m also dabbling in some freelance work and graphic design.
I’m attempting to garden.
For the third year in a row, I am trying to fill out my flower bed in front of our house. I’ve made some progress over the past few years, but it still isn’t quite right. I had no idea that so much work and planning went into such a thing! I’m also starting my first vegetable garden this year, which may or may not succeed. No matter the outcome, I still enjoy the process of planting seeds and watching them grow.
I’m a self-proclaimed nerd.
I enjoy learning about anything and everything. Recently, I bought some books about taxes and taught myself the ins and outs of filing taxes and getting the best benefits, credits, and deductions in the process. And I did this for fun.
I have struggles.
Just like any normal human being, I struggle with a lot of things, including bouts of anxiety and depression. I’m still learning how to cope with some of my emotions, and I constantly have to turn to God and remind myself that He is always the answer. I have found much comfort recently in memorizing some Bible verses and reading some great devotionals.
