You can call me Sasha.  Its the nickname my dad gave me when I was little.   I am a single-stay @ home mom, not by choice but because its the kind of thing our courts allow to happen.  I homeschool my 3 kids (we’ll call them Pookie, Bubba, and Woogie), am an independent contractor for “The Old Schoolhouse” Magazine, and am working on becoming an IBO (Independent Business Owner) with Amway Global.

I love God!  I love all that He has done for me.  I am constantly amazed at the ways in which He provides for me and the kids.  Sending His Son, Jesus, to die for me was more than enough, but His blessings continue.  I currently live with my mom.  We work to help each other and this has removed a lot of my stress.  Amazingly, we are able to live together in peace…most of the time.  I have met the most wonderful man who loves me and my kids and is working to move closer to us so that we can work on building a life together.  My bills get paid, food is on the table, my kids are healthy, my friends are awesome, and I have peace.

That is the jist of the who…now on to the what and why!

My friends keep telling me that I should write a blog.  And I’ve tried before but it just didn’t stick.  I really had no purpose in writing.  But, I think that I’ve stumbled on one.  Titus 2:3-5 gives us a good start.  It says:

“The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things–that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.”

That’s it!  That’s what I want to do.  What I have felt the call on my heart to be-first to the young women in my church, and now to all of you.  (I hope there will be a you out there reading this).  I am by no means an old woman, but I am one who has searched the scriptures and is trying to build my life on these principles.  I don’t profess to have all the answers.  But I know what I have been taught, what has worked for me, and what I feel sure will work for you.

I will probably refer to several books other than the Bible that I have found helpful.  They are “Created To Be His Help Meet” by Debi Pearl, “Wild at Hear” by John Eldridge, and “Love and Respect” by Emerson Eggerichs.  I will post links to them later.

So…let’s see where this takes us!

God Bless
