How are you?
I am fine.
Well I am tired, but what is new?
I have been all over the world this past weekend and we have had a bit of a scare with one of my grandmothers, but as of right now, things are holding steady.This week is promising to be a busy one (one day I am going to learn!) but I am determined to face it with grace and love – and to find the goodness of God in everyone I meet.I thought this would be a good time to kick-off a new series that I hope will become a regular feature around these parts. I am calling it At the Intersection, and it is all about how other gals out there -gals like me who are mothers, artist and followers of Christ-juggle all three areas of their lives at once. How they live at the intersection of art, faith, and motherhood.
I chose these three particular categories because they are the very three that I find pull on the same parts of my heart. All three demand of me the following: time, creativity, the ability to listen, the ability to problem solve, and to think critically. And all three are rooted -should be rooted-in grace.
But instead of just listening to me talk about these ideas, I thought I would invite some friends into the conversation. To see if I was the only one who works to juggle all three, or if there might be others out there who face similar struggles, whose stories might shed a little light and provide a little encouragement for you and me.
I am also hoping that you, my most fab readers, will also offer encouragement to each of these lovely women, who, like you, are doing their best to live authentically in the present at the intersection of beauty and mess.
First up is Heather Hamilton of Life Made Lovely.
So, let’s start with the basics, shall we?
I would ask that you prayer for me to have renewed strength each day to block out the noise of the outside world, so that I can focus on God’s voice and the truths He’s placed on my heart.
Thanks so much to Heather for answering my questions and for being such a willing guinea pig for this first volume of At the Intersection!
I am by no means a journalist so if there are questions you would like me to ask future interviewees please leave them in the comments on this post.
Also, if anything Heather said struck a chord in you, please say so! The great thing about blogging is that we can encourage each other, right her in this little online space, from wherever we are, no need to even put on make-up or brush our hair. So please, leave Heather some love in the comments!
