You're SOOOO Invited! The Ultimate Blog Party 2008

So I'm still new in many ways to the blogging thing, but since my life is in major transition, I have chosen my blog as a means of surviving the changes as well as reaching out to other women.

As part of this, I've been reading other women's blogs, mostly via Lysa TerKeurst's blog. My goal was to read at least one new blog a day and to comment on it, knowing that by doing that I am encouraging my sisters in Christ (as I am called to do), as well as networking and experiencing the various formats of blogging that exist.

In that journey, I stumbled across the Ultimate Blog Party 2008! Here is an awesome opportunity for you to join women across the country and find more blogs! It's also a way to get your blog out there. I hope that you will join me in the party.

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

(Oh, and by the way, at the very end stages of my pregnancy, I'm loving any party I don't have to get all dressed up for! LOL)

If you're new here, here's a little about me:
I'm a 30 something newly remarried mom. My wonderful hubby, Dan, and I both have beautiful children from our first marriages--three on my side, two on his. We are currently expecting baby number six (yes, we know what causes it and how to stop it! LOL). We both wanted a big family, and well, we've got one!

I was a single mom raising these three angels mostly on my own for the past five years. My middle child, Mikey (10), was born with a bi-lateral cleft lip and palate back in 1997. What a journey!

I am just starting my maternity leave from work. I've been working full time since 2002 outside of the home, and long to stay home--either working from home, or just loving and raising my family.

One of the most important things in my life is God. He is the reason I have hope, and the reason I keep going when things get tough (which seems to be more than not some weeks!). In addition, writing and music are passions of mine also.

Welcome to my little "table", and I hope you stop by again!
