Spread Joy

Hey, joyful friends!!

If you’ve been following me lately, you may have read that I’m teaming up again with Abby Barstow from The Joyful Homemakers Club for Round 2 of the #iamajoyfulhomemaker Instagram campaign.

I’m so excited — today is DAY 1!

Today’s prompt is “Your Joyful Face” – introduce YOU – The joyful homemaker!

Not all my Joyful Mama Friends are on Instagram, so I thought I’d post an invitation to #spreadjoy here on the blog, too.

I’m Faith – stay-at-home, homeschooling, Jesus-loving, coffee-consuming mama of two littles (Bundle and Baby Bear). We live in the very rural Midwest. When I’m not blogging or spreading joy on IG, you can find me in the garden, in the kitchen baking up gluten free desserts, or lounging on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book in hand.

Are you a blogger? Please join me! Introduce yourself (and leave a link to your blog) in the comments. I’d love to get to know you!

I can’t wait to see you!

The Day My Three-Year-Old Announced Our Miscarriage in Church

*Disclaimer… this story is not within the realm of my usual blog post genres. Full disclosure: I’ve been putting off writing and posting this for several months. But during those months I’ve felt God wrap this part of my story in a sense of urgency to share it. I’m not sure who is meant to read it, but I pray that through it, someone else may be encouraged, and feel not so alone.
