The following is a testimony from Evangeline that I thought many of you would find encouraging:
Thank you for your blog. I’ve been following it for years, and as a young mama of 3 littles, your posts have taught me, sharpened me, and most of all encouraged me when I was feeling overwhelmed. Thank you. You have been such a friend and mentor to me!
Today, I put the kids down for a nap and checked what you posted for the day, as I often do. But then I realized something important. I needed to stop learning and start doing.
Thanks to you, I KNOW the importance of routine, of saving money, of stopping and taking the special time with my kids, of doing a load a day all the way through and so much more. But knowing isn’t the final step! I need to get to the doing!
Sometimes I’m tempted to just read how great your goals are and not set my own. To see you tackle your laundry pile while my grows as I sit behind the computer. I applaud you grabbing life by the horns, but my dreams and visions just stay on the back burner.
Just wanted to write this because I feel like many of your readers may be in the same place. There are many people daily discovering your blog that have a lot to learn. But I feel that more than them, there are many of us long-time readers that KNOW a lot, have learned a lot and it’s time to roll up our sleeves and put it into practice!
