A Strong Woman, or a Woman of Strength?

I want to strive MORE to be a woman of strength.

A Strong Woman or Woman of Strength?

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape...
but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her...
but a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...
a woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be God's blessings
and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman walks sure footed...
but a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls.

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face...
but a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will
become strong!

~Author unknown, but appreciated ...
(A woman of strength shared this with me.)

Home-making: The Power Career

Until I have time to devote to this little space on the web again, and until I get a few things (mainly my thoughts!) in order to start my mini SAHM series, I'll leave you in this wonderful blogger's very capable hands.  :)



Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little girl.  :)

You are our miracle, and our favorite blessing.

Hello Again!

Hi y'all!
It's been a loooong time... again... but I've been missing my little blog and, low and behold, wouldn't you know it, I got a PHONE CALL about it from a very dear friend of mine today!  ;)

This super wonderful person (whom I miss very much!!!) has asked me to share my "wisdom" on being a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM).  She thinks it would be helpful for other wives/mothers, of whom she knows several, who would like to Stay At Home, but just aren't sure how to make the "leap".

Well, as you can imagine, I laughed out loud at that!  But, I did agree to do some writing about it here.  Most likely it will be more than one post, because I just don't know how to put something so big and "vague" into few enough words to just be one post.  :)

So, coming soon... well, sort of "soon"... will be some posts in a kind of series, called      "SAHM: ____".

I'll try to cover the "basics" (at least, as I see them), and I'll be very honest about how I see "Staying At Home" and about what I believe.  

Remember though, I am not an expert, in anything, by any means.  :)

What I'll share here with you is purely from my own experience and perspective, so please, if my views/opinions differ from yours, be kind.  :)

I'm also planning on asking a few other mamas, all who are very lovely ladies that I highly respect, if they might try to find the time to either blog about this topic on their own blogs, allowing me to link here to their posts for you to read, or being a "contributor" blogger here- giving us their two-cents on the matter. 

So, stay tuned... if you want to... hopefully this will be a really cool series.  

Lots of Love,
Jenni  :)

Soulful Mothering...

"I've learned (and I write this sitting in my utter mess of a dream studio) that its not the size of your space, the perfection of your organization skills or the cleanliness (what?) of your children that keeps you feeling all tucked in and happy.  It is actually just deciding to feel tucked in and happy.  Despite the mess.  Giving yourself the permission to let it be what it is.  A family living together in one space, with invisible boundaries.  Where much can be shared, discovered and learned (and dumped, and scribbled and torn apart too)."
