I’m very pleased to announce that my mother, after much nagging from me, has started a blog! We got this blog set up a few months ago before we got the boys and then life got too busy to actually do anything with it. Hopefully she will be posting regularly and I’m so excited to read her blog! She has impacted my life so greatly with her parenting, wisdom, and friendship and I hope that you all will benifit from her as well. So go over to Radical Womanhood and be sure to leave a comment and encourage her to keep blogging! God bless you all.

Hello everyone! Over at my other blog Imperishable Beauty, we are starting out a new feature with my mom and Abigail’s mom (Mrs. Kraft) entitled Pearls of Wisdom. They will be answering two questions a month each and it will be a great way for them to impart their knowledge and wisdom with our readers. These are two godly and wonderful women, both of whom I admire and look up to so I am very excited for this endeavor. So if any of you, especially you girls, have any questions that you would like an answer to from two wise women, go on over to the blog and ask away!
Some of my heroes are my parents. My siblings and I know better than anyone that they aren’t perfect, but God has truly blessed me with Godly, amazing parents. So I am going to take the time to tell you some about them and “Rise and call her (or them) ‘blessed'”. I’ll start with my Daddy!
My dad has been such an example of a gentleman for me. He has shown me for as long as I can remember, that a “real” guy will cherish me and honor me. He cares about my heart and that just makes me choke up thinking of it. My friend and I joke around that we will never get married because her dad is a cop and my dad is a lawyer turned pastor! : ) But I truly love how much my dad cares for me. Last year my dad gave me some of my favorite advice I have ever received, “There are only 2, no 3, guys that you should ever care about what they think of you. God, me, and your future husband.” That bit of advice has meant so much to me. I have a daddy that has taken me on “daddy dates” even to this day (we need to have one again). I am so blessed to have a dad that is SO theology smart. I can go to him with all my questions on the Bible and theology. He doesn’t have all the answers, but he is still a huge help. My dad works so hard to provide for us. He has also shown me to wait on the Lord and to follow God’s path for us. My family has struggled with trying to find God’s plan for us and my dad has been excellent on saying “no” to something we may want, because he knows (or believes) that it isn’t God’s plan.
My mom has decided to stay home with us and teach us, and for that I am SO thankful. Both my parents sacrificed so much so that we could be homeschooled and I want them to know how thankful I am for that. My mom puts in so many hours and has given up so much, just for us! My mom has been such a supporter of my dreams!!!! She has always given me her thoughts and her encouragement. She has been a great help with helping me with my writing, singing, and piano. She is a woman of prayer and has been praying for me since she was a girl. My mom is always there to talk about whatever I need and has put so much effort into my life.
My parents have shown me what Godly people are. They have trained me in the word of God and have sacrificed SO much for me. My dad drove an hour last winter, so that I could go to a close friend’s birthday party. My parents have sacrificed money so that I could play violin and viola and piano. They have used their time to teach me many valuable things. They have listened to all my hopes and dreams (even the crazy ones) and have given me advice on which ones to pursue. They are AMAZING and I love them SO much! They are some of my heroes and have made such a difference in my life.
In Christ Alone,
