I started blogging in August 2011. Prior to blogging, I owned and wrote at my website called Sadie’s Place. It was set up a little different than WJIM but had the same focus: biblical ministry, mostly to women, but even men could benefit from some of what God led me to write. I had that site for ten years before stepping away. I took a much needed break from the Internet world and enjoyed life more deeply with my family.
However, only a couple of years went by and I felt the call to jump back into this type of ministry. With blogging all the craze, I started a free blog at Blogger then moved to WordPress a year later. And here we are!
Prior to 2016, I blogged quite a bit. I soaked in every bit of information (free & paid) that I could get my hands on to. I read ebooks and other blogs on blogging. I did a consultation with another well known blogger over the phone and felt so thankful for the information given by her. However, 2016 has found my blogging moving at a snail’s pace. It has been a season of rest for me concerning the blog. Not my by design but by the Lord’s.
I pray over my blog often and seek the Lord for wisdom. This blog was never mine to begin with so I don’t want to run ahead of the show, if you know what I mean. And in God’s faithfulness, I have seen this blog grow and have met some truly wonderful people along the way.
Blogging has been a wonderful outlet to share God’s Word and to encourage others in their walk with the Lord in all things. I am so thankful for this little place on the Internet. I love sharing what the Lord lays on my heart and am so grateful you all have stuck around even through this slow season of blogging. Thank you friends!
