My Friends! I am so glad you're here!
Today is the first day of my blog's re-launch, and I'm so incredibly excited!
First, some information for my history nerds ....
I started blogging in college (circa 2002) using Xanga (can you believe it?). At the beginning of 2008, I switched to the blogger platform, and "yourstrulyh.blogspot.com" was born. In the middle of 2013, I re-branded to The Young Museum. In 2013, I got involved with The Influence Network and attended The Conference in September.
The Conference blew my mind, you guys. I realized my space, voice, and overall "brand" could be used as a ministry, of sorts, and my current blog wasn't scratching that itch.
Six months...fifty-eight emails...four hundred and thirty two prayers later...and this blog was born.
And now, for those of you that like a good (short) story...
The year 2013 was brutal. We have a tiny hallway that connects our bathroom and two other bedrooms. I used to come home from work, sit on the floor, and cry to Tim in that hallway while he showered.
I started thinking about how badly I wanted a life that inspired "cartwheels down the hall" instead of crying, and...let me tell you...The Lord did not disappoint, cause things are now on the up & up. ;)
With that being said, I'm so glad you're here.
When I started dreaming about a re-brand, I wrote a list of prayers / desires /wishes for the blog and the words to come.
The one that stood out the most...that would become my "Manifesto!" was this...
I wanted The Lord to use this space to help women strengthen their faith, marriages, friendships and homes.
So... here we are. With busy hands & an open heart.
Curious. Anxious. Excited.
My best to you.
Love & I'm so glad you exist,
