My name is Carmen. I am married to an amazing man of God named Anthony, which I love to serve the Lord with. We are blessed with four beautiful children. All so very different, mostly because they are all in different stages of their life. My oldest daughter is 14, oldest son is 9, then our little girl is 2, and last but not least our youngest son just turned 1. I became a stay at home mom three years ago. I love being a stay at home mommy. Every day is a new day and is never the same. I love reading books, blogs, or articles that has anything to do with marriage. I can not start a day without a cup of coffee. Coffee is just amazing to me! On hectic days it’s pretty much breakfast, lunch, and dinner to me. (I do not recommend that!). I love to write. It’s always been therapeutic to me. I have felt like writing has been tugging at me the past two years. I love to write to encourage myself and others and writing about my passion for the Lord. Blogging is not how I thought I would do it, but after some research, here I am with a blog!
My mission is to be led by God. I dedicated my life to the Lord in 2009. I was going through a tough divorce and felt very much alone. I was ministered to through a movie at a church event. Instantly I was sold out for the Lord. I became a true believer that God will and can, heal, deliver, and restore. When divorce happened about a year later, I never doubted what God was doing. I knew that all things worked together for the good to those who love Him and was called for His purpose. I sought Him and asked Him to direct my steps. After much forgiveness and surrendering all my cares to Him, He healed me, delivered me, and restored me. I have now been married to my husband Anthony for three years and love every bit of it. He is a man after Gods heart. We are in agreement that our mission is to be led by God in all that we do.
Purpose of Blog:
As I begin this new adventure in my life of starting a blog, I hope to inspire and encourage other women with the Word of God of what being a wife and stay at home mother is as a follower of Christ. I hope to express understanding, compassion, and love to all the beautiful, strong, graceful mothers that read this. I want to share about the blessings of building up our homes as godly wives and mothers. My deepest desire is to build a home that represents Christ and with the Lords help I would like to express all that comes with it to you. I hope you join me in the journey!
Married By His Grace:
Founded 2016. Married By his Grace was created because His grace is upon us. I am married to my husband that I have the honor to serve the Lord with because of His grace. I am able to write about marriage and being a mother because of His grace. When I gave my life to Christ, I started a lifelong relationship with the Lord. I am married to the Lord first and I have a marriage with Him because of grace. As I write this blog I hope for us women to receive His grace through the lifelong relationship we have with Him.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
