Motherhood: My New Ministry

I've been at home with Hudson now for almost 10 weeks and I absolutely love it!  I haven't figured out how to do too much, yet, but I will get there.  In the meantime, I am loving having the opportunity to stay home and care for and love our son.  I was going to go back to work 2 days/week, but at the beginning of January something just didn't feel right about it.  Brian and I prayed about it and we came to the decision for me to stay home.  It was a little scary thinking about giving up my income, but at the same time, a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders and I felt really good about the decision.  We're now going to have to really stick to our budget, but that's okay, it's worth it.  I know my time at home will be spent well and will be my most important job.  I see this as my ministry to raise a Jesus loving, people loving, respectful, mature, and responsible child and adult.  I know what I am doing will have lasting value.  God has blessed me with the privilege of raising Hudson and I am humbled by this responsibility.  I'm so thankful for this calling!

 I love seeing this little, sweet, smiley face all day!

  3. My husband and I came to the same decision a couple of months ago...for me to stay at home. I completely relate to the weight being lifted off of your shoulders (AND the need to stick closely to a budget). :) Congratulations...he is adorable!
