I Write Because.......

So, who am I?  Why do I write?  What's this blog all about?.......

I started this blog back in 2008 when I knew I was heading back to Uganda on a more permanent basis.  There had been a lot of changes in my life, but I knew this time going back was going to be different.  I wanted to document my time in Uganda, the ministry, what was going on in my life.  Several friends were also blogging so it was also a great way for us to keep in touch with each other.
Over time, this blog seems to have wandered.  Sometimes there has been a story, a thought, something to catch people up on in life, etc.  It's not ever really had a theme.  Well, maybe it has.  It's been about my journey.  But, it still seems that it's kind of meandered around.  Lots of different things going on so it's not always been about ministry or even my thoughts on it all.  Other times (most times), this blog has been really quiet.

So, who am I?

I'm just an ordinary woman from Arkansas (what seems like the middle of nowhere) who got transplanted to the other side of the world (Uganda).  I'm a wife (to one husband- David), mother to four little girls (Jackie, Jurnee, Joelee, and Jamaree), and homeschool teacher to same four little girls.  I'm also a full time missionary running a sponsorship program and praying for the day we'll see our school opened.

I love the Lord.  I love children and being a mom.  I love pouring into the lives of children and watching them become what God created them to be!

Why do I write?

I have always enjoyed writing, whether for school, a journal in my spare time, or even for work!  I still enjoy writing.  It's always been a way for me to process what is going on in my head.  But, somehow it gets pushed to the side a lot.  Hopefully, that will get better.

What's this blog all about?

I'm wanting this blog to take on some sort of direction, be a bit more specific.  I've decided to make this blog a blog of my life- sort of a memory book.  I want to have a space where I can "take a walk down memory lane."  So, this blog, is taking a  new path.  For all of you friends and family (especially on the other side of the world), you can keep up with our day to day life here.  Watch the kids grow!  Remember with us the journey that we're on!
