This past weekend I attended Faithway’s 20th Ladies’ Retreat. Each year, I am thankful that they put it on and that I am able to attend. This year, the theme was “Celebrate Change” and it has a variety of applications. The most important application being the change that comes with Salvation; a change of heart, a change of family, a change of master, a change of eternal destination. Of course, there is also continual change of sanctification as we submit and surrender to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to conform us to His image.

In thankfulness of my salvation, I thought I would share with you my testimony in a nutshell:

I am thankful that I grew up in a Christian home with parents who truly love the Lord. It was through them, and my Sunday School teacher, that I came to Christ at a very young age.

Romans 10:9 says “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

At 3 years of age, I understood that I was a sinner in need of a Savior and, thanks to John 3:16, that famous Sunday School verse, I understood God’s amazing love for me! I am thankful that salvation is for all who call on Him (Romans 10:13) and that the Lord has made salvation so simple that even a child can come.

During my teenage years I drifted away from the Lord and went my own way. The Lord has given us all a free will and permits us to use it. I am thankful that he is merciful, longsuffering and, though he allowed me to go my own way for a season, he continued to keep His hand of protection on me. In His timing, he used circumstances and people to draw me back to him.

I am closer now to Him than I have ever been. I have come to learn that it is only through a right relationship with Him; when we love and serve Him; that we can experience a true inner peace, joy and happiness regardless of outward circumstances.

If you’re thankful for your Salvation, say ‘Amen’! And if you aren’t sure that are saved, or don’t know what Salvation is, please take a moment now to read God’s Simple Plan of Salvation.

This is the first post on my very own blog! I have been following a few blogs for a year or so now but had never considered starting one until now. I’m too busy and who has time for a blog?!?
At the not-so-gentle nudging of my husband…here I am!

So let me introduce myself:
  • Scott and I married in 2005 in Italy and honeymooned there and in France. It my adventure of a lifetime!
  • I have a daughter named Chloe (2007) and a son named John (2008); both of which keep me very busy as a stay-at-home mommy.
  • I am trying to earn an income from home and am currently watching a little girl the same age as my daughter 3 days a week, I bake cupcakes for a local company once a month and am trying to so some lunch catering for local businesses as well.
  • I love to read, enjoy eating chocolate and love to be outside.
  • I enjoy expressing my opinion (in a nice way I think!) and that is why my husband was insistent that I needed to create a blog.
  • I love to wear an apron around the house…it makes me feel domestic 🙂
  • I enjoy reading about home-making, child-rearing and becoming a better wife and mother. I want to be the wife and mother that God designed me to be…and I have quite a ways to go 🙂 I want to Embrace the Beautiful Calling that God gave me.

This is me when I was expecting our daughter Chloe (Dec 2006).

This is Chloe and John a couple weeks ago. There is only 7lbs (and 18 months) between them!

This is Chloe waiting for her guests (cousins) to arrive for her Birthday Party.

So this is my little family and this concludes the end of my first post.

🙂 Jenn
