Why I Am Starting a Second Blog

I'm a busy lady.

Wife to one. Mom to five. Owner of three Pugs and one rabbit. Youth leader. Homeschooler. And so on.

And most of the time I don't feel as if I have the time or energy to do any or all of those "jobs" very well.

So why would I create a second blog? Especially when I don't exactly keep up with my first one?

Because my blog ~ Encouraging Moms Who Homeschool ~ ( has a single purpose of encouraging women who home educate their children. And it doesn't have any wiggle room for ministry and encouragement for women who don't homeschool. As my kids have gotten older (2 in college, 3 in high school this fall) the "reach" I have has changed and I find myself talking to, and attempting to Biblically encourage, a much wider swath of women.

So this new blog is sort of like opening a whole new can of worms...hence the really ridiculous name.

The phrase implies that a simple attempt to help better something may well create a far greater mess sums up the way I feel about this second blog. I'm not sure what will happen, what type of posts will wind up here, who I may anger with my (at times) very strong opinions. Nevertheless, I am moving forward and I will let the Lord determine what I blog about. He's far better at handling the messy details of my life anyway!

Thanks for reading my first post on my second blog!

Day 1 done :)
