Blog Purpose

I've been inspired by more than one blog I read to write a bit about the purpose of my blog.

This blog is a reflection of my life. The most important thing in my life is being a Christian and I hope both to be a witness to unbelievers and be an encouragement to fellow believers. I am also a wife, mother and homemaker trying to live up to the standards set in Titus 2 and Proverbs 31. (Of course I am nowhere near the high standards set in the Bible but I must continue to work towards them.) I hope that by sharing with others about what I am doing, I can be an encouragement to them.

To my suprise I have also found blogging to be helpful to myself. Firstly, I am encouraged and helped by those who read and comment on my blog. Secondly, writing about these things for an audience helps me to think things through in a more clear and organised way. Thirdly, I find that writing about what I have done for other people to read helps me to be more organised and get more done. I never expected these benefits but I guess God had planned it this way.)

So I guess the purpose of this blog is to share the outworking of my faith in my life for the mutual benefit and encouragement of myself and my readers.

Thank you for sharing. I do indeed get encouraged when I read about what you have been doing. I feel like I am so far away from being able to do some of the things that you do, but it does encourage me. Hope you are having a blessed week in the Lord.

It's wonderful the range of breadth of subjects a blog can cover. And for that matter the different purposes. I really do concur with your thoughts. I like it when a blog post challenges me, or gives me new ideas but sometimes its good just to hear what people half-way across the world are doing and thinking!

Thank you for your comments, I find it amazing that I can be a help and encouragement to tohers and really do feel like I've got out far more than I've put in.
