You won’t see serene photos of earth-toned tableware or towels folded into marine mammal shapes for World Oceans Day. There won’t be any matching mother-daughter aprons, paper made from elephant poo, or ruffled-Christmas-wreath tutorials. If you see any frosting it’s because it got stuck on my keyboard when I dropped the cupcake I was eating for breakfast while I typed this paragraph.
What you will see is someone who struggles with feelings of unworthiness, shame & guilt from a less-than-perfect past; learning to overcome habits of perfectionism* and procrastination*; walking out what it means to be a Christian. The masks I wear, they’re coming off. I’m not sure what I’ll find underneath.
Can I do this? Not alone.
Am I scared? Out of my mind.
I’m a woman, a wife, a mom, a mess (I’m working on that last part) and I commit to growing in my faith and to sharing with you what I learn along the way.
I’m not above bribing you, either; there will be cupcakes — but there might be cat hair in them.
