The purpose of this blog!

You know how everyone makes grandiose New Years resolutions that last for about 11 seconds?  Well this year I have some pretty big goals.  That's nothing new.  I'm a first born and nothing excites and thrills me more than a list of things to accomplish.  But this year is different.  The goals aren't different but the reasons behind them are.  

I started 2011 off with reading the Bible in 60 days.  Reading the Bible all the way through (and for hours at a time) gave me a fresh perspective on my goals.  I want to be a more efficient homemaker so that I can spend more time teaching my children to love and serve God.   Not so that I can impress others with my clean house or organic, wholesome food.  But so that I can spend more time teaching these amazing little people that I am blessed to spend 24/7 with.   

I started this blog for three reasons: 

First, at the end of the day I enjoy journaling about our day and what worked and what didn't.  

Second, my sweet sister in law has pestered asked me forever to start writing about the craziness that goes on in my house on a daily basis.  

Third, accountability. If I think that someone might know if I fail at my goals for the day I will be motivated to keep going.  

...our house at night. One of my favorite pictures.
Even when I would just like to sleep :)
