Since i’ve gained a few more followers I thought an introduction post might be fun! My name is Cris, i’m a wife of almost 8 years and a mommy of 5 years. I have 3 little boys… Griffen is 5, Beckett is 3 1/2, Collier is 2, and i’m currently about 8 weeks away from delivering my fourth boy, Lincoln! Everyone always wants to know if we were trying for a girl. The truth is, while we would love to adopt a little girl one day to add to this crazy clan (a story for another blog post i’m sure. 😉 ) we just really always wanted at least 4 kids. God chose for them to all be male. My husband grew up an only child and wanted a big family, and I grew up with one older brother and always wanted a lot of kiddos to call me mom. I always knew early on that I wanted to be a stay at home mom, and told Zack very early into dating that it was my plan. God has really blessed that, and while it’s taken some sacrifices from both me and Zack, so far we’ve made it work. We have 1 puppy, Bree, who’s a 7 year old Maltese/Yorkie mix. About 2 years ago, while I was in a broken, lonely, no fun place I started to really seek out God’s purpose for my life. I grew up in church and was saved early on, but was never super consistent with keeping a close relationship with Jesus. I can’t say enough about the importance of an actual relationship with your Savior. Literally life changing.  Throughout my journey through motherhood I’ve always had moments of thinking “that would be a good blog somewhere” but never thought I was capable of being the somewhere. Having a blog was (and still is) a scary thought for me for a few reasons. One reason is that it leaves you vulnerable. I never want to come across like I have it all together… believe me, one look at my boys messy faces and you’ll see that I don’t! I want to be relatable, fun, real and honest. I struggle with all of the same things other mom’s struggle with, and this blog is just a place for me to talk it out with you. Never to judge, or preach. Please believe me when I say that my intent for this blog is just a safe place for moms to know they’re not alone. I also want you to know that when I do post, I pray multiple times over my words. I would never want to harm the kingdom of God, misrepresent who Christ is, misrepresent who I am, or make you feel less than. Ever. EVERY time I post I study through Gods word, pray about what i’m writing, and typically have someone in my family read through my draft to approve before posting. I can’t even count the amount of times I have typed a whole page and “moved it to trash” because it didn’t feel right. My hope for this blog is for it to be a place I can be creative, speak truth, share my love for design, share Jesus, and share the joys (and sorrows) of motherhood. Thanks so much for reading, and if you want to, i’d love for you to pray for and encourage me just as I will do for you! <3
