I am a wife, a mom and an artist – trying to fill these roles to the best of my ability: to love, respect and support my husband, raise our daughter and son in a godly home and use my creative talents for the benefit of others… and have fun doing all three!
Why is this blog called “grown-up?”
I wanted to create a place to share ideas on being a wife, a mom, a homemaker, a craftist (craft-artist), a designer and a Christian, and to gather ideas from others on any and all of those topics. First of all, I consider myself to be a 30-something mom who never wants to grow up! I love to play. My husband would agree that out of the two of us, I certainly add the childishness to our marriage and our family. So, the fact that I am a wife, mom, and in my thirties means I should be grown-up, but the kid in me will always be there. The other reason for the name is this; I searched Scripture and found these verses:
Psalm 128:3 – “Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine within your house, your children like olive plants around your table.”
Psalm 144:12 – “Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up plants, And our daughters as corner pillars fashioned as for a palace…”
I want our home to be a place where my husband considers me to be a fruitful vine – comfortable, productive, adequate, refreshing… and I want our children to be “grown-up” even in their youth – lively, thriving like well-watered plants, fashioned for a specific and beautiful purpose.
