My life has undergone some drastic changes in the past week. I’m in a place I never imagined I would be…a single mom with four children.  How did this happen? Why is this happening to me and my children? Is there anything I could have done to prevent this from happening?

I don’t know all the answers, but I do know that God has a plan for my life. Although I may not understand why this happened, He does.

This hardship has opened my eyes and made me see that I am not where I need to be spiritually. Though I attend church regularly, I am out of fellowship with God. Although right now I am weak, I know this experience will bring my children and me closer to God.

This blog will serve multiple purposes: First and foremost to document my spiritual renewal and growth. I also want to document our journey into frugality. I will share what I tried; what worked; what didn’t.

This entry is short, but I will be back soon. I leave you with a verse that is comforting to me right now: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt 11:29-30).
