Hi, There! Mother Gibson, here.
I’m in my mid-twenties and trying to learn to manage a household, train up children in the way they should go, and be a loving wife.
I married my best friend in 2008. Two years later our daughter was born. 21 months later, our son. 21 more months, and our newest addition, another son. What happens to make me fertile as soon as my kids turn one year of age is still a mystery.
I love ducks, arts and crafts, worship, languages, and friendship.
I have an MA in Intercultural Studies. I love people. I love cultures. Did I mention I love languages? I love bringing Jesus to people, so that He may be glorified in every culture, and worshipped in all languages.
I would like to be a lactation consultant, and a lawyer, and several other things. I LOVE being a mom.
You may find me blogging about stuff I read, peculiar interactions at the supermarket, or just my random thoughts.
You will absolutely find me blogging about my kiddos- Bug, Gus, and Ace. No those are not the names on their birth certificates.
The Purpose of this Blog
“Sit, Walk, Lie, and Rise” comes from Deuteronomy 6:7, which basically instructs God’s people to be talking about Him and the great things that He has done 24/7.
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. ”
(Deuteronomy 6:4-9 ESV)
So, my blog should consist of stories in my life that will point you to God. Since I’m a Christian, my entire life ought to be pointing you to God. My life must be surrendered to Christ daily. That’s what it truly means to call Him “Lord.” I am a sinner. I am a sinner saved by the GRACE of God. I still struggle with my own selfishness, especially as a mother and as a wife, but God is a wonderful, merciful teacher. Here’s my life-long lesson in written form, intermingled with stories of humorous antics and extra things I enjoy. The url is just a reminder to me of what my life ought to be.
