Getting to Know....Me!
In honor of the Women Living Well Blog Bash I'm doing a little getting to know you blog.
My name is Stacy
I'm 28, single and living in the Midwest. I've been a Christian since I was 16. I've also been a nanny for 12 years and enjoy caring for 4 kids . I've had my blog for a little over 2 years but have only been really getting into it and posting regularly in the last 2 months. I started blogging because I feel it's what God has called me to do.
The reason I blog is based on this verse:
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows."
I want to bless and encourage people who are struggling by sharing the lessons the Lord has taught me through having severe fibromyalgia since childhood. I think that whether your struggle is with chronic pain or disease or just the everyday business of life my hope is that you will see something in the words I write that will draw you closer to Jesus. If you don't know Him as your savior I pray that you will. If you are a believer but aren't living a life fully yielded to Him I pray that you'll be encouraged to grab hold of the abundant life and purposes He has for you. If the pain and circumstances of your life have become a burden that has stopped you from being all that God wants you to be I pray you'll find victory in Him, to give the burdens over to Him and trust that He can use you exactly as you are!
My own life is so far from perfect and that's why I blog. I've learned a lot of things the hard way and I pray my stories may spare you the same pain. In addition to sharing my journey with fibromyalgia, I also enjoy blogging about my adventures as a nanny, frugal living, and homeschooling preschoolers.
I love meeting new people & would love to meet you! Feel free to also find me on Facebook & Twitter!
Now it's your turn! Tell me about you & share a link to your blog if you have one:)
