I feel very sad to think about closing the door on this amazing chapter in my life. And I hate saying goodbye to so many precious sisters in the Lord I have met here. What an inspiration and encouragement y’all have been to me!
But I don’t want to leave y’all in limbo. And I want to give you a chance to share anything you’d like to say and provide a bit of closure. It would be rude for me to just vanish into thin air.
I do want to share that my family and I are doing well. I hope you are, too. Even with all the craziness going on.
Why the long period of silence on my end recently?
In April, I was struggling with a knee injury and worsening asthma, which meant I had to lie down with my knee propped up when I was not at work. So grateful, my knee is much better now. And this past month, we have had many sweet extended family celebrations with graduations and weddings that have been joyous.
But I have not had gobs of time to sit down and focus on writing. And this post was not one that I could rush.
Why Am I Saying Goodbye?
I have been praying about what to do the past 3 years, especially. I kept hoping that eventually, I would have more time to blog and do online ministry. But I am coming to terms with the fact that I am not going to have tons more time right now or in the foreseeable future. (Unless something were to dramatically change.)
I have been in a new season and I no longer have the 15-30 hours per week needed to devote to continue doing online ministry.
I only have a few years left with my children at home and want to pour into them as much as I can and I want to be here for Greg, as well. They are all looking forward to this change and to me having more time with them.
I am also now heading up our women’s prayer team at my church, which is such an incredible joy. It is just amazing to get to hear the prayers and faith of other women as we lift up our church, our nation, and our world to the Lord together.
For now, I believe my calling is to focus on the Lord, praying for my family/the church/America/the world, and being here for my husband, my children, my job, and in-person ministry at my church.
If something changes, I will certainly let you know!
It Has Been Such an Honor to Share Life with You Here
I have seen the Lord do countless miracles here in our midst. In myself and in many of you, as well. What a blessed experience to learn and grow together in Christ and to encourage one another, to spur each other on toward love and good deeds.
Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading and for sharing and being part of this community. Thank you for all the amazing discussions we have had. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for seeking the Lord with all your heart and desiring His best for your life, marriage, and family.
Even with difficult times ahead, Jesus truly is the key to real Life, Love, and Peace. I long for everyone to get to experience the blessing of knowing and trusting Him and of discovering His beautiful path and wisdom for our lives, marriages, and families.
I so look forward to meeting all who know Christ when we join together in heaven! I’m thankful that this is not a final goodbye. Just a temporary one. And I hope that I’ll get to see every single one of you in eternity where we can rejoice together forever. What a wonderful day that will be!
I pray the Lord’s blessings, leading, wisdom, power, and healing over each of you and your marriages, husbands, and children. May God direct us and give us ears to hear. May He empower and equip us to be faithful to Him and to be a blessing to those around us, shining a bright light in this dark world to draw people to Jesus and eternal life.
May we cling to His love, truth, and powerful Word. May we yield ourselves fully to the Lordship of Christ in every area of our lives and trust Him no matter what may come. Knowing He is our Good and Faithful Shepherd and He knows how to protect, guide, and provide for us until we reach Home. May we abide in Him and may His Spirit produce much fruit that will last in each of our lives.
My Plans for This Site
I am planning to keep the site up so you can still read through all the posts. I hope to move it to a lower-cost host as a static site soon.
What About My Social Media Sites?
I will be saying goodbye there, as well. But hope to leave things up for people to read if they still would like to go through my videos and posts.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Eph. 3:20-21
If you’d like to share what this site has meant to you, how you are doing, prayer requests, or anything else with me and the ladies here, this is your opportunity!
I will try to respond to all the comments as I can. It may take a few days. Thanks for your patience!
My books are still available on Amazon, Christian Book, and Barnes and Noble online.
- The Peaceful Wife
- The Peaceful Mom
If you’d like to see the journey I took and the things the Lord showed me in His Word to help you on your journey to trust and know Christ more, to move toward a healthier marriage, or to have a stronger foundation spiritually as a wife and mom, I invite you to check these out.
Reminder – For any wife who is experiencing abuse or dealing with extreme situations in your marriage, please reach out to trusted counselors preferably who have experience with the issues you are facing. My books/blog posts are not written from the perspective of a wife dealing with abuse or danger to herself or her children. My writings are from the perspective of a wife with a strong personality and a husband who tended to be quiet.
Some other sites that may be a blessing (be sure to compare anything any human author writes to sound doctrine in Scripture):
Proverbs31.org – for wives and moms.
Reviveourhearts.com – for women, wives, and moms.
Gotquestions.org – A great place to look up almost any question you can imagine about the Bible, faith, and faith-related questions about our world and culture today.
OpenBible.info – A place to search for verses about a topic.
And the most important of all, The Bible! God’s Word is the only ultimate source of real truth, hope, and abundant life now and in eternity.
