I thought I would write an reintroduction post to my blog that is in more detail than my about page and since somethings have changed around here.
I started A Jewel In The Making in 2008 on Blogger. I wrote a few posts but life kept me busy with my then three kids and pregnant with my fourth. Then in December 2011 I decided I really wanted to start blogging again but this time share more then just what’s happening in my life and fun, cute ideas. I want to write about things that I’m passionate about and share information on what I’ve learned over the years. I also hope to earn money while blogging to help support my family.
More about me
I’m a work at home mom married 10 years. I am a firm follower of Christ. I have five kiddos. My oldest, a girl, is 9. My next is a boy, who’s 7. Then I have a girl, who’s 5. My next is a boy who’s 4 years old. My youngest, a girl, is 2 years old. I homeschool the oldest two. We live in the Pacific Northwest. We love being together as a family. I love photography-almost graduated from college for that. I also love reading and when I was younger you could not pry my nose from a book. We love renting a beach house for a week in spring and enjoying our vacation just relaxing. I love visiting the lighthouses around the area that we rent in. I just started working at building my business as an independent distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. They have helped my family so much. I blog about it at Anointing The Family if you are interested in learning more about how essential oils can help you.
More about my blog
I really started growing my blog into the vision that I hope it will become starting in July 2012. First and foremost this blog will serve the Lord. Some of my posts will be about God and my faith. Each weekday I plan on writing a different topic on the daily theme.
Sundays will not have anything as it is a time for church and rest and family.
Mondays theme will be Biblical Theology. I share a verse of the week, a biblical theology term, a youtube music video of a Christian artist who’s songs I like, points from the Westminster Confessions of Faith and other confessions of faith, points from the Baptist Catechism, a little info about a person in the bible and a little bit about a book of the Bible.
Tuesdays theme is health and diet-mostly the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. We are a gluten free family and I have even taken it further and gone grain free on the Specific Carbohydrate diet, which has been rewarding but tough. Nothing in life is easy. I plan on talking more about food, natural health, dangers of chemicals, vaccines and other health related topics.
On Wednesday are recipes that are “legal” on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
Thursdays are about homeschooling. Ideas I hope to implement in our homeschooling, things we’ve learned, field trips we have taken, legal information and how to start homeschooling.
Fridays are all about becoming a T2/P31 woman. T2/P31 woman stands for Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 from the Bible. These posts are about homemaking, frugality, becoming a better wife, mother and homemaker as outlined in the Bible. Hoping that these will help encourage you.
Saturdays are for posting whatever I feel like posting. This may include info about Young Living Essential Oils. I do reviews and I definitely do quite a few giveaways. I plan on doing at least once a month but hopefully more often as personal finances allow. Most giveaway items will be products that I have used and/or enjoy and want to share with my readers. A few friends of mine make their own products to support their families and I want to support them. One friends makes some lovely absolutely divine goat milk soap and I enjoy using it daily. Another creates beautiful jewelry from older pieces that have been upcycled in to new pieces.
Even if you are not a Christian I’m sure that you will learn alot if you follow me.
So what would you like to learn about? Do you like my themes? Would you like reading a few reviews? What kind of giveaways are you interested in? Do you think you would be interested in my blog? Please be truthful, you won’t hurt my feelings-honest.
