I decided to start writing a blog for several reasons.  First, I have been playing with the idea of writing a book for a long time.  But, I have struggled to get started.  This blog seems like a logical place to kick me into writing daily.  Second, I am the general contractor for a house being built on our farm for my parents.  This blog will be a place where I can share our construction progress with friends and family.  Third, as a beta reader, I am familiar with some amazing authors and books.  I love to share my latest finds with others.  Finally, as a mom, follower of Christ, and new farm girl, I want to share the wonderful, miraculous blessings in my life.
