I’m a wife to one and mama to three. I want to make every day count and to live a life that makes a difference. I heard Joyce Meyer say that wisdom is doing today what you won’t regret tomorrow. I want to live a life of wisdom. I don’t want to be one of those moms that is always waiting for the kids to be out of diapers, then waiting for them to be in school, then waiting for them to be teenagers, and then they are out of the house and time is gone and the years God gave me to invest in them is over. Instead, I want to enjoy every moment and live a life without regret. My desire is to serve Jesus today and to live for Him on purpose in a way that glorifies Him and that I won’t look back on with regret tomorrow.
I named this blog “Godschick” because my kids had some influence in the decision. My husband and I are intentional about speaking life and encouragement over our kids. We do our best to speak what the Word says about them and to speak “what we do not see as though it were.” We tell them all the time “You are a leader”, “You are strong in God”, “You are loved by God”, “The Lord is pleased with you” and more. One of the jokes with my 6 year old son is that “You are one of God’s dudes” meaning that he belongs to God and God is pleased him. One day, I was joking around with my son and he said, “Mom, if I am one of God’s dude’s, then you must be one of God’s chicks.” So, that is where we got the name, if you were wondering.
