If you’ve been following the blog this month, it’s been pretty obvious that I’ve been writing to moms and grandmas, but even if you’ve never had a child, I hope you’ve picked up on a few helpful life principles. This isn’t a parenting blog, but there are a few Mommy bloggers and authors that I want to introduce you to as we finish up our month on Mothering.
Meet my friends, Erin, Heather, and Carrie!
We’ve had Erin Davis here before. Her book, Beyond Bath Time: Re-imagining Motherhood as a Sacred Role is one that I hand out to new moms. Erin lifts the curtain to see beyond the piles of laundry and provides a peek into the sacred. She challenges moms to live beyond the daily monotony that threatens to suck the joy from motherhood. Erin encourages moms with truths like this: “Your small tasks have the power to point to a very big God if you are determined to do it all for His glory.”
Heather Patenaude is still in the trenches of motherhood and I love her outlook. She’s shared here before. Heather is passionate about living a Christ-centered life and her passion flows over to being a wife to John and a homeschool mom to: Miles 8, Luke 6, and Clark 3. Heather serves as the site administrator and authors several articles at the Beyond Bath Time blog.
Carrie Ward shares her own journey through the Bible with her young children in Together: Growing Appetites for God. She’ll inspire you to pick up your Bible and dig into it with your own little ones! Carrie and her husband, Wes, live in Michigan with their four kids; two cats; and Lab named Jeffrey. Wes heads up the media efforts for Revive Our Hearts.
These are precious women I count as friends and I know you’ll enjoy hearing their hearts the next few days!read more
Welcome! I’m glad you’re spending a few moments with me here. It is astounding to think that in this small corner of the blogger world, women from across the globe can experience the adventure of growing together in Christ. I never planned to grow up and be a blogger but writing blogs allows me to disciple more women than I would ever have opportunity to actually meet.
My reason for writing is that I have to. This driving impulse to communicate God’s reality and goodness to others is like a burning fire. Because of who He is, the desire for others to know and love Him consumes me. He is my passion and I don’t want to waste a single day, but cram each moment full of living all out for His glory. I long for the day when all will know that He alone is God.
Kimberly Wagner is married to her favorite pastor, LeRoy Wagner. Their children include Caleb and his wife Lindsey; Rachel and her husband Adam, and their daughter Teagan.
Kim’s passion is Christ, and she desires to ignite women’s pursuit of God’s glory. She is a frequent guest on the Revive Our Hearts radio program, as well as a regular contributor to the True Woman blog and the Beyond BathTime blog. Kim has written several devotionals and resource materials for women and loves encouraging women to become students of the Word.
A dream was realized when I attended the first True Woman Conference in 2008. I’ll never forget looking around at thousands of women, freely worshipping God together, embracing their calling as women, and thinking, He’s doing it, He is birthing this movement!
In the late 1990s my friend, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, gave me two books that made a significant impact on my life. True Woman by Susan Hunt and The Feminist Gospel (later revised and entitled The Feminist Mistake) by Mary Kassian. My eyes were opened to how the feminist philosophy has permeated our culture and what a loss we’ve experienced as a result.Read more
