2011 Ultimate Blog Party

Hi everyone!

Welcome to This Little Light Of Mine. This is the first time I'm doing the Blog  Party thing and I've cut it really close to the end!

Let me tell you a bit about myself. Firstly, I am new to blogging.. I only started in January at the encouragement of my husband.

I've been married for 21 years to the love of my life and I am a SAHM.. have been for 18 years. God has blessed me with four beautiful daughters (ages 20 to 4) and I have a lot to be thankful to Him for.

 Did I mention that I live in the Caribbean? That beautiful picture above was taken on a local beach by my husband while on a 20th Anniversary "honeymoon", so its really special to me. 

My readers get little pieces of me because I write from my heart and everything that I hold dear. When you open up a post of mine, you get a window into my life and all that God is doing for me and my family. I hope to use my faith and experiences to inspire others to be lights for God.

I'm big on romance.. I love all things vintage and reading is my passion (So I'm the girl you'd see with her nose buried in a historical romance!) I have to say though, that within the last couple of years, God has shifted my focus off of reading romance to creating romance... right here in my own little life! I'm also trying to read more inspirational books and have been burying my nose in the bible doing a couple of bible studies.

My blog is mostly about my faith.. I do share on marriage, parenting and recipes occasionally. As my blogging skills improve I hope to share more. I have found blogging to be so rewarding and a perfect outlet for my love of writing.

I have met so many wonderful women who inspire and challenge me and I love discovering new people all the time. Its a bit difficult to balance blogging with all the other "mommy/wife" hats I wear, but I do believe that it is also a perfect avenue to share my faith and learn from others... so I persevere!

I look forward to meeting lots more people in this Blog Party and I invite you to browse my blog... I hope you find something in here that you like and that inspires you to shine brightly for Jesus!

I pray that God blesses each of you abundantly!

You and I sound so much alike, I wish we could be neighbors. Especially now that I know you live in the CARRIBEAN! WOW! I would love to be standing on that beach in your picuture. (sigh, maybe some day:)
Praying for your day tomorrow.

It's a beautiful picture! I live on the west coast, within walking distance to the beach. Yours sounds so fabulous though. I would love to go to a warm beach.

Wow, the Caribbean, that must be lovely! That was nice of your husband to be so encouraging to you through blogging. You gotta love a husband that's a cheerleader too!

Have fun "partying" and hope to have you stop by when you get the chance!

Hi! I'm visiting from the UBP - I'm #73 (Being Made Ne - http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com) on the Christian list. Very nice to get to know a little about you - where in the Caribbean are you (I ask because my husband makes regular trips to Trinidad)? - and I hope you might have time to visit my place. :^)
