The Ultimate Blog Party!


I am Jodi at one blessed mama of boys. I am so excited that you visited from The Ultimate Blog Party! Here are just a few quick things about me:

  • Praise God I am a sinner who has been washed in His blood and I am FORGIVEN!

  • I am a Bible believing, Christ follower who loves to be a part of church ministries.

  • I am married to a wonderful man, who I am thankful to be a helpmate and companion to. God has truly blessed me.

  • We have two wonderful children, Dylan who is 3 yo and Lincoln who is going to be 1 yo in two weeks (My little baby!!! tear...).

  • I am 24 yo.

  • I was sexually assaulted and my dream is to tell young girls of how Jesus can help you overcome it all.

  • I am an only child to two great Christian parents.

  • I am blessed with many friends who encourage and minister to me every day.

  • I am going to be starting homeschooling this fall and I am very much excited and looking forward to that adventure!

  • I love being frugal. We follow Dave Ramsey's financial plan and we are very excited to be doing what God would want us to do with our money.

  • I love spending the summer growing, harvesting, and preserving our own foods.

  • We are trying to go totally homemade and organic with our food and it is proving to be an adventure!

  • I want to learn to get into sewing and making our clothes.

  • We live in beautiful (haha!) Ohio where the weather always keeps you guessing, but I love it anyway.

  • My dream is to have 6 or 7 children but I suffer from a bad cervical conization and PCOS.

My goal in this blog is bring you the real musings of a woman who is living a life she never expected, but LOVES every minute of it. I want to bring encouragement and Jesus to women who read this blog and I want you to feel my love for my Sweet Jesus, family and friends. I want to teach you some of my ideas on how to get past these hard times and become debt free. I want to bring you along with me as I begin the highs and lows of homeschooling and also on my quest to get my family health physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I am so excited to meet you all!
