A Steward of This Space

Recent statistics show there are approximately the same number of American moms with blogs as there are individuals in the country of Croatia. Any sane person would wonder how a single voice can be heard among the crowd.

Am I just contributing to the noise by sharing my words each week?

Like many, blogging started as a means to update family and friends strewn across the landscape. Soon the possibilities emerged for making money, getting free products, and gaining popularity through followers.

What I never expected was the joy of rediscovering my love of words.

Of the billions of hard or soft covers around the world, none hold my name in ink. Magazines do not include a column with my name at the bottom. Papers, white or any other color, are not referenced because of my keyboard.

Despite those things, I am a writer.

My journals are filling with ink again. My supply of stamps and envelopes dwindles each week as words of encouragement journey between mailboxes. This little, unspectacular corner of the web expresses my life through the use of twenty-six letters and punctuation.

God is using my words, this space, to share what He is doing in my life, in the hope that it will encourage you. 

Being a steward of the words He gives me, of this space, of my time. That is what it means to be a Write It, Girl.

  1. I spy my name!! Which also reminds me that I have yet to do a post and link up on the 25th…this “new” baby (ok, ok, he’s 7 months old) has thrown me for a major loop. Did I mention he crawled 2 days before he turned 6 months? Yeah…not much time for crafting these days!

    1. If there is a single reason in the world NOT to craft, it’s for a baby! I hope you will be able to join me for the Linky before the year is out but for now, I am truly happy that I have actually completed some projects. Thanks for stopping by today.

  2. “God is using my words, this space, to share what He is doing in my life, in the hope that it will encourage you. ”

    Oh Tammy He is using you! You have no idea who is reading your words…honestly. So glad you are being faithful to put them down here, for all to see! Ann Voskamp said the same thing last year at “Relevant”. “If I put them down here, someone may be blessed.”

    And the comment about Croatia – that is so funny! We are our own country of mommy bloggers! Love it!

  3. That is quite the staggering statistic! LOL! :) We truly aren’t alone in this Mommy blogging world. But I actually find that a bit comforting. I love community! Thankful for this one. (Write It, Girl!) God bless!

  4. I loved this post – especially “God is using my words, this space, to share what He is doing in my life, in the hope that it will encourage you. ” That is the same prayer I have for my own blog. I have loved reading your posts so far and can see we have a lot in common. I am not sure how I was led here, but I do follow you on Twitter so maybe that’s how? I’m also part of the #UBP12. Thanks for your heart and sharing so openly!

    1. I’m so glad you are being blessed, I am in awe how God keeps showing me how similar I am to others in this technological space. We tend to feel we are ‘the only one who _____’ don’t we?! However you got here, I’m so glad you did!
