So after an unintentional hiatus from Blogging, hopefully I am back to updating regularly.
Craig and I were able to take Speirs to the Farmers Market a couple of weeks back to pick out our family pumpkin. They had this cool pumpkin house so we captured a few shots with Craig's phone....which sadly I think takes better pictures than our camera!

I just love this clip because it gives me hope for family and friends and people everywhere, who think that being a stay-at-home mother is a waste of a life, that it could never work, and doesn’t make sense unless your family is rolling in the cash. There are mothers who are able to work outside the home and it’s not sinful at all, BUT the calling on my life during this season is strong, clear and most importantly Biblical. In Titus 2 verses 3-5 Paul says, “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.” This could look a little different for each wife and mother but for me it means (the short list) loving my husband serving him and being his helper, loving Speirs and teaching him about Jesus daily, working in the home- cooking, cleaning, managing, following Craig’s leadership, and seeking to glorify Jesus and help Craig make the name of Jesus known in our home. I know myself and I know my tendency to seek worldly success and I know that working “outside” of the home would ultimately be unfair for my family and extremely self-seeking. My life is not wasted as a wife and mother and great things happen everyday. To Jesus be the glory.
