Passion for God builds home – Columbian article

I have been blessed with the opportunity to appear in our local newspaper, The Columbian, today! It was a fun privilege and the article was well written and truly caught my vision and purpose in blogging, homemaking, living simply, and our family ministry. If you want to read it, it is online for all to see. ;) Check it out here. All for the glory of God!

I must add though…my husband (although he was not given much acknowledgement in this article) is the back bone behind this blog! He is my tech man that made this blog possible. He is my biggest cheerleader, not only in my blogging, but always encouraging me in my delight for homemaking. I love him and couldn’t do it without him.

P.S. To to clarify about the comment on “affiliate marketing” in the article, I do not receive payment for posts that I write. Being an affiliate means I use and recommend products that I have found beneficial, and earn a small percentage of the sales made through the referral links in the post and sidebar. I only have affiliates with companies that I believe in and personally use. And yes, all our profits are now being donated to support an orphan home! More on this soon!

    Love your witness and faithfulness to the Lord. I see Him in your lifestyle and that is what brings me back to your blog again and again. I’m 31 and want to be more like my Savior. I never knew he would help me do this by having me watch a 24 year old woman’s example. This is why I keep re-reading C.J. Mahaney’s book, Humility! I’m so thankful for your generosity in sharing how to glorify God in the home. Your blog is such a blessing to me.

    Great to learn more about you! We are the same age and that is so encouraging. Often as a mom, wife and homemaker at the age of 24, I feel isolated and a little crazy for being so young and pursuing these things. It is so encouraging to know that we are the same age and you are living out Biblical womanhood. Yay!

    Terrific article! It was inspiring to read someone who so clearly explained her viewpoints on important issues. It’s hard to believe you’re only 24, you sound very mature for your age.

    I loved the article. It is so nice to see something positive. Did you happen to read the comments written about the article itself? They were interesting.

    Congrats!! I looove your blog, and am glad that you have this opportunity. And congrats to Aaron for work well done.

    By the way, if you are ever in Austin, TX, I’d love to be your hostess :-)

    Hi Lindsay, sorry to post twice, but I just wanted to let you know that I linked your post to my blog so that all my readers could come and check it out. this is very ispirational, and I want all my readers to see it as well. Thanks again!

    Very well-written!

    How lovely! Thank you for voicing that a woman who chooses to stay home with her children and (gasp!) enjoys making her home is a woman of worth. So often, women are judged by their ability to bring home a large paycheck…it’s beautiful to know that some women still adhere to the biblical model of womanhood! thanks again for the inspiration.

    amen to that mama!

    Bravo to you and Aaron. You are so wise for a woman of 24! Gosh, when I was 24……well I won’t go there. :o

    What a great job the writer did! I love your quote at the end.

  18. Sharon October 11, 2009 at 1:57 pm #

    I thought this article truly projected your heart and purpose for your home–and how you reach beyond your home into your community, and the world, with your blog. You’re quotes were very articulate, meaningful and inspirational. I can’t believe you’re only 24!!! Blessings to you!

    Beautiful article! I guess I didn’t realize that we live in the same general area. :) They did a good job of capturing the feel of your blog.

    Fantastic article! What an honor and a blessing :) It is probably one of the first publications I have seen that portrayed stay at home moms so well!

  21. Lindsay October 11, 2009 at 11:55 am #

    A wonderful article! I was blessed by your statement, “I want to be the nurturer of my children’s souls and lives. …I don’t want to pass this honor off to anyone else.” Beautifully said.
