Salt and Light Link Up

Salt & Light Link Up #6

God has you where He wants you! As a mother and blogger.

Featured Post


A year ago the Lord spoke to me very clearly about balancing my tasks of building a home, motherhood, and blogging.


I remember so clearly the day He spoke to me and said, “How can you blog about marriage and parenting if you are not doing it in the home?”


That question from Him shocked me. I couldn’t believe He would ask me that. I was blogging about serving in marriage and motherhood because I loved it so much and I confidently knew I had many testimonies to write about it.


But after reflecting much about it, I realized I was suddenly spending more time blogging than I was with my husband and children.


I felt so convicted about this. I sought the Lord, asked for forgiveness, and began to change my ways immediately.


He was right, I could not blog if I was not representing what I was writing. I had to live out what I was writing about for marriages, motherhood, and about blogging.


This is why the post from Denise spoke to me so strongly. Her post is about confidently knowing you are where He wants you to be as a Mother and Blogger.


Her post was a great reminder to me of where the Lord brought me from a year ago and how it truly changed my perceptive of what my blog is really for.


Here is Denise’s post featuring on Salt & Light Link Up…..


With whatever season of life you’re in. Whether you’re a stay at home mom. Whether you go to work everyday. As long as you’re being obedient to Him, can you actually believe that God has you right where He wants you to be?


As a stay at home mom, it’s easy to fall into the trap of the mundane. Every day is the same. You get unmotivated and discouraged at your every day tasks and the demands of young children.


This is something I relate so well to. Which is why I’m writing this post. The other day, I loaded all the children up on the gulf cart, and we went riding around the property. For me this was not that exciting, but the children loved it.


In the midst of riding the gulf cart, I’m thinking of all these things I want to do on my blog. I honestly would have rather been in front of my computer typing away or reading my friend’s blog posts…..

    I relate to this. Blogging can definitely eat up as much time as we’re willing to feed up. There has to be a balance. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks so much, Carmen, for featuring me! I feel so honored! Several times during this blogging journey I would catch myself focusing too much time on my blog rather than on my family. And like you, God would nudge me and remind me of my priorities. And sometimes I jokingly would think, “if I didn’t have these kids I could work on my blog all the time!” But then He says, “Denise, the only reason you have this blog is because of you kids!” Ha, so I need to be reminded continually that this is a part time ministry for me. Thanks again!

      I can completely relate about catching myself blogging rather than on my family which is why your post spoke to me so much! Thank you for sharing!
