Confession 199: Boys

So, I found a cool new site I’m linking up with today called M.O.B. (Moms of Boys).  As most of you know, I have two boys, ages 3 and 5.  They are wonderful and exasperating all at the same time!  As Christian parents, the most important thing to my husband and I is that our boys grow up with hearts for God.  I just want them to serve God, in whatever capacity God chooses for them to do that.  So, it’s wonderful to find a site full of other women dedicated to that purpose.  Here’s some basic information for those hopping over:

1. I am a United Methodist pastor’s wife.  When we moved a year ago from our past appointment I had to give up my job teaching high school English.  God has taught me a lot about relying on him this past year as I have not been able to find another full-time position. Like always, he has opened up doors I never expected or anticipated.  I recently started my own business as an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics.  You can check out my webpage here.

2. My boys, Garret and Stephen, are masters of mess and chaos.  It’s always something around our house.  Yesterday I caught my youngest washing out his underwear in the sink because he refuses to poop in the potty and apparently he thought cleaning up himself was the more preferable choice.  This same child also flooded a church bathroom this past Sunday by turning both water faucet’s on full-blast 5 minutes before the start of worship.  Instead of leading singing, I was mopping!!

My oldest is more subtle.  During prayer time one Sunday he decided to body surf under the pews to the front of the sanctuary.  Just as my husband was getting to the Lord’s Prayer Garrett pops out in front of him and says, “Hi Daddy!”

3. I started this blog because I love writing.  Confessions of the Pastor’s Wife is not a tell-all of parsonage living, but rather reflections and experiences of my own journey with God through all of life’s ups and downs.  It is an attempt to help others connect with God and to discover new facets of God for myself.  I am in the process of writing a devotional book which may or may not ever be finished! 🙂  And, I contribute monthly to Seeds of Faith, a wonderful online forum for Christian women throughout the world.

As my youngest has decided to try jumping from the couch to recliner, I should probably end here.  I’m so glad you came to visit me today, and will be by to visit you soon!

Blessings and Peace,

    It is great to meet you. I'm visiting from the bloghop. Your post made me laugh. It is so good to meet moms with boys an see that they are all so similar (both fun and frustrating as you say).
