Stuck in Your Rut started as a way to motivate myself to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. I have a tendency to stick with what I know and not try new things. However, the focus has changed. You can read about when I made the change in a previous post.
After my marriage almost fell apart and I had to go through the rough process of looking at myself and seeing many areas that I needed to change, God gave me a heart for marriage. I began to study the Bible and Christian resources to see how to improve myself and my marriage.
I believe 100% that I would not be here today if I did not take the step of turning my life over to God. He is my creator, my redeemer, my savior, my comfort and my hope (to name a few things)!
I am not at all claiming to be an expert on life or marriage. I have no degrees in the field. But, I have learned a lot of life lessons the hard way and would love to help others avoid the way that I went. I also want to set the example for my daughters of being a Godly woman and that marriage goes so much better when you follow God’s plan.
When I was at my lowest point I found 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” God provided me with so much love and comfort and wisdom during the roughest period of my life and I don’t want to waste what He gave me if it could be a source of comfort to someone else.
If you want to know more about me, here are a few facts:
- I am in my early thirties (how did that happen?)
- My husband and I married when I was 19
- We have 3 daughters
- I love Disney
- I enjoy baking
- I love corny jokes (my favorite: What did the grape say when the elephant stepped on it?… Nothing, it just let out a little whine)
- We live in Michigan, but dream of moving south
- I love the country and small town living
