My children think I like to clean because I do it all the time. It’s true I love my home and taking care of it, but nothing is more important than investing in the lives of my seven children. We read together, eat, talk, laugh, go for walks, have adventures, and sometimes…they even help me clean.
I am married to Rich and together we are traveling along in love, raising our family and growing closer to each other every day.
I am a born again Christian and have loved Jesus since I was a child. My family attends church on a regular basis and my husband and I are both involved in local Bible studies. I love God’s word and singing the old hymns and newer praise songs, too. I think that getting to know other believers is one of the best parts of blogging.
I blog because I want to record memories for my family. My husband and children read here and my brother David is one of my biggest fans. Thanks, Dave.
I love my friends and hope to be friends with you, too. My name is Shanda and I am pleased and humbled to welcome each of you to my blog.
things I like:
motherhood; reading; photography; music; Bible study; my favorite season is Autumn; handmade things; cooking and baking; blogging; USA travel; Country Living UK magazine; playing piano; Eloise Wilkin illustrations; children’s books; sending and receiving mail, old things; chickens; kittens; hanging laundry out to dry; the smell of wood and dirt; wildflowers; mushrooms; nature; birds; seeing married couples holding hands; snuggling on the couch watching tv with the children; making friends, sharing, love, sweet fellowship, warmth and kindness, all the beautiful things of living.
I named this blog “Good to be Home” because I enjoy all things domestic and believe that the home life is extremely important and can typify our Heavenly home. As a child of God, my heart longs for that home in Heaven, someday. “Oh that will be glory for me.”
