Welcome to the new BEEsy Mama blog! Thanks for stopping by and checking it out.
As a busy mama, I yearn to slow down to live the purposeful life God intended for me and to savor the sweet moments given to me each day. BEEsy Mama is place where I chronicle my journey as a busy mama trying to do just that. It’s where I share ideas on ways to slow down and be intentional and tell about the struggles I face in trying in battle against busyness and its distractions.
I hope to encourage you as moms to savor those sweet moments you are given each day with your husbands, children, parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors. As you know, we’re only given one chance at this life, and there’s so many precious gifts awaiting us. We just have to slow down long enough to accept them.
So what can you expect to see with the new BEEsy Mama? Well, for starters I hope to post more regularly. Here’s my current schedule for blog posts each week.
I’m also planning on introducing some new series. One series you can expect to see soon is Building Faith in Li’l Bees. This new series will offer practical ways you as a mom can build up your little one’s faith, including devotions for little ones and crafts to supplement the devotions.
And you’ll want to stop by tomorrow to check out an exciting new series entitled Around the World in 235 days: Embarking on an Adventure to Pray for the World. While some of the suggested activities will be geared toward elementary-aged children, anyone can participate in what I hope is a life-changing experience to learn about the different counties around the world, to grow in awareness of the needs of people in these countries, and to pray for each country and their needs.
Of course, many of the series you may have seen at the blogspot site will also be a part of this new site, like BEEsy in the Kitchen (recipes and cooking tips) and BEEtween the Pages (book reviews).
