Thanks for visiting my blog. It is a work of God and a work in progress. When researching in order to start my blog, I began my search with “best Christian mom Blogs” – I know, probably a mistake. Well, I definitely found the BEST Christians and moms who just happened to blog in all their free time after homeschooling, traveling world wide on mission trips and starting unbelievably great organizations. And because they seemed like such wonderfully amazing Christians and moms, their blogs could be nothing short of great too. Needless to say, despite the fact that any ol’ Jane can start a blog, I am feeling totally unworthy. I do NOT feel like I have earned the expert title in any field. I do NOT have the desire to stay home with my kids. I do NOT want to have a house full of children – two is plenty thank you! I don’t have a huge problem with my kids attending public school – as imperfect as it may be. I can’t even imagine starting my own organization. It is all I can do to keep the Bowen Organization in working order, I mean we use the word “organization” very loosely here.
I teach. I mother. I wife. I survive. Or at least that is how I feel most days. Even as I type this blog post, I wonder what I am doing. I don’t have time to start a blog. I don’t know what I am doing. But I know this is where God is leading me. He is leading me to at least explore the process, so here I am! If you are like me and you do not have your life together and you need a little time to be selfish and you sometimes get tired of the perfection society has asked us to shoot for, then we are in this together. We can live in grace together (oh thank heavens!). We can figure out how this everyday works and how this abiding works. And how the everyday and the abiding work together. Everyday. Abiding.
