I wish I could tell you that all of life is easy, and that this blog would be boring because nothing unhappy every happened here. But that wouldn’t be true. The truth is that I don’t always see the good that God has for me. I am often blinded by the mundane and the frustration of life in a fallen world.
But, I’m starting a new era. I am dedicating myself to trying to be full of gratitude to God and recognize all the blessings He has sent and is sending my way. I want to trust in and rely on God in a new way. I am going to practice something the Bible calls Firstfruits. I hope you’ll want to join me in this journey!
Come with me on an amazing rollercoaster ride, as I explore what giving the firstfruits is and what it means to modern family life! This is a place where I’ll be real. So you’ll see what I’m learning, how it impacts my life, and how it shows up in our family.
Here is the first Scripture I plan to learn. I’m printing it out, framing it, and hanging it in a place where I will see it often!
Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops
Proverbs 3:9 NIV
