Writing a blog. This has been on my mind for a few years now and I really didn’t think I would actually do it. I had hundreds of excuses as to why it wouldn’t work. Hundreds of reasons why someone wouldn’t ever want to read it, etc. But here we are…
I should probably start by introducing myself. My name is Hannah, I’ve been married to my husband, Jared, for 8 years. He teaches 8th grade math at our local school and runs his own photography business. He is my best friend and greatest encourager. We have three children, Elijah, Micah, and Amelia, who keep us on our toes and laughing constantly. We live in the beautiful Finger Lakes where I spend most of my days working in our home, spending time with friends, playing at the lake with the kids and homeschooling our oldest son. I love coffee(my husband spoils me and roasts his own coffee beans), reading books, journaling, cooking, and going on adventures with my family. I have a heart for community and building lasting friendships.
My real passion though, is studying the Bible. I enjoy spending as much time as I can in the Word and learning all I can from it. God has laid it on my heart to share what I learn with others and I’ve been ignoring this prompting for quite some time now. Through encouragement from my husband and friends I’ve decided to start this blog. My hope is to share with you things the Spirit lays on my heart. Things that are revealed to me during my quiet time. Things that can encourage and lead you to a closer relationship with Christ. My desire is for women to know as much as they can about the Bible. Really study it in detail and grow in it.
Imagine a little girl sitting at her desk in her bedroom. She has journals, notepads, pens, pencils, highlighters, all sorts of things to write and create with. This little girl sits for hours just taking pen to paper. She may not know how to spell words correctly, or have a specific reason for writing at the moment, but there she is, spending her time at her desk, writing.
That was me growing up. I loved writing letters to friends(this was before e-mail) and writing short stories. I would take old books and highlight and make notes in them like I knew what I was doing. Perhaps this is where my love for studying came about. I always tried to be a perfectionist. I wanted to be the best at whatever I was doing. I wanted to know as much as I could about whatever I was learning. I feel that same passion about the Bible. I will never know everything about the Bible, but I’m here for the long haul to learn as much as I can while I’m on this side of heaven. Let’s get our Bibles and start studying and learning together!
Hi, I’m Hannah.
I am a lover of Jesus, wife, and mom to 3 kids. Occasionally I like to share things that are on my heart and you’ll find them here. Thanks for taking the time to check out my site!
