"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" 2 Corinthians 12:9

About



First and foremost I AM a child of God, Daughter to the King! Striving in this world of chaos to be the best servant, wife, mother that God created me to be.  I guess if you are here you are wondering about the girl behind the pages. Well where do I start. My name is Cindy and I am a mother of three Stepmom to three. Most of my life I have been a stay at home mother with alot of different interests.   

First of all, I grew up in the great state of Kentucky. I lived there all my life until my now ex-hubby took me away to see the world. And the world we did see. I married my high school sweetheart ...that was in 1981. He (We) joined the Navy in 1982 and retired in 2002, we have seen a large portion of the world. It was  definitely an adventure. We have lived in Spain (where our oldest son, Wesley was born) and Colorado (where Derek came along) and England and Germany  (where  Tori  was born), Puerto Rico and now I reside in Maryland where we retired.

I was a  SAHM for years, after  having children and was very active in their lives.  It is a overwhelming job being a mother, but one that I wouldn't trade for anything. My kids are great ,although no matter how old they get, you can still get overwhelmed. Even though we have our moments, life wouldn't be the same without them. I have two sons and a daughter. I find it a great challenge to bring them up in a Christian home in this world but with the grace of God and the support of wonderful people and family I will continue to try.

Over the years,I have taught Sunday School. I was  always been involved in a number of Bible studies and this is something I found great pleasure in. I hope to learn more about our Heavenly Father and his teachings. I don't have the opportunity and luxury of all the bible studies and such that I used to and I find that I miss that greatly, “sane”. I enjoy  the fellowship and the support of other  Christian women and moms and wives. Which you can find some wonderful links on my blog for some great inspiration and motivation as well as biblical teachings. 

I have had active roles in numerous clubs over the years and I am starting to sit back and prioritize. I am finally learning to take time for myself and really investigate who Cindy really is. For so long I have been everything to everyone else and now I find it a challenge to find out where and who I really am. I think sometimes as mothers we get lost in our families we forget how to be our own person.  

My life has changed drastically over the last several years (remarried after a 23 year marriage) but it has afforded me the chance to see what I am truly made of, and more about my strengths  as well as weaknesses. I went to work full time when I separated and divorced and it changed my life as I knew it.  It has been a long and sometimes very painful journey but overall I am finding that Cindy is emerging into  the special and unique woman God created me to be.  Today, I am truly grateful for where I am, and what God has seen fit to provide for me.  God has given me many blessings in this life and each day I try to show a grateful and humble attitude to Him for what I have.  On many levels, I  can say I am truly happy today.

Create in me a clean heart, O God;and renew a right spirit within me. Psalms 51:10
