Light is Dawning

Hi, I'm Lisa.

Just a little bit about me. I'm 43 years old and married for 21 years. I have four beautiful daughters and I am blessed to have been a homemaker for the past 18 years.

My husband suggested I start my own blog since I've been communicating with others via forums etc. and I do feel like I could make a difference. Its been a few years now that I've felt called to be a light for Jesus.. hence the name of  my blog.

My hope is that I can inspire other people to continue to walk in the Light and to be lights for Him. As I have gone through the highs and lows of life, I have felt God's presence with me and His Spirit guiding me and so I feel called to share my experiences of how God has worked and continues to work in my life.

I have to say that it was interesting how I got put on this path. I had been going through a really rough time and, in searching for some support, I was reading lots of stuff on the internet and came upon the MarriageUncensored tv show coming out of Canada, I believe? As I looked at a couple of their videos, they had Dr Scott Haltzman as one of their guests. I really liked what he had to say so I searched him up.

I went on to Dr Scott's website and found a video from a Rachael Ray show. Now, I love cooking and baking so I'm a huge Food Network fan and I happen to like Rachael, so I looked at it. I was so surprised to see that the programme was on "Time Warp Wives". I consider myself to be one of those, of course! It was so exciting to see young people taking such a stand in modern times.

I discovered Courtney's women living well blog and subscribed and got introduced to a whole new world that I never knew existed. I never realised that there was a whole bunch of women who lived like I did! It was so inspiring and I felt happy to be able to get support just by reading these other women's blogs. I've since subscribed to several and wish I had the time to spend reading ALL of the others as well!

So, this is an official thank you to Courtney for inspiring me. Somehow, I feel that, since God does everything for a purpose, then I have to believe that my coming across her blog was no accident. So, here I am, poised on the brink of a new adventure.. I hope that you will join me.

Wow! I just started my blog too (over the weekend) at my husband's urging. How funny. I found your blog from a comment on WLW that I had also commented on. My blog is www.workingonthesimplelife.blogspot.com
We used the same template to create our blogs :)
Good Luck with yours and God Bless!!
