About Myself

My friend, Michelle, at She Looketh Well is having a giveaway. The only requirement is that you introduce yourself and then link back to her site, which you can find here.

So, here is a little bit about me.

Now, I have to admit right up front that I really don't like talking about myself but I will give this my best try.

I started blogging because my beautiful daughter, Julia, had a blog and had met so many nice, friendly young ladies that were sweet, like-minded and serious about God that I wanted to get in on the action and meet some women who were like that, too! And I have!! I was in need of some friendship and encouragement and have found so many nice women here in blogland.

Mainly, I write about what I am learning in my walk with God and the study of His Word. Occasionally, I will post tidbits about my projects or what is happening in our lives.

Here is my best friend and my husband, Bob. He is so good to me and we have a great relationship.

(I don't really love NY by the way, it's just tourist propaganda.....)
And these are my great children! Julia, Steven and Mark. They have been homeschooled all along and are a delight to me.

I have many hobbies and love to produce things. Sewing, quilting, crocheting, canning yummy food, beading, and reading top my list. "Function" is my favorite word, just ask my kids.... Pink is my favorite color with lavendar a close second. I am usually at home enjoying my life as a keeper at home.
Above all, I am a believer, a Christian since I was 12 yo. The Lord is my light and my first love. I seek to serve Him in all I do. I desire to fulfill my role as a Titus 2 woman and continue to grow daily in my walk with the Lord and in the knowledge of His Word.
I guess that about does it. Everything else is just fluffy stuff. :)
Now that I've introduced myself, how about you leave a comment and introduce yourself. I would love to get to know you!

Welcome to the party Gloria!

What a blessing to meet others who are seeking to serve the Lord in this life! It is so encouraging to see that the Lord has His people everywhere.

You have a lovely family...what a wonderful thing that you are a "keeper at home"...that's a testimony in itself.

Have a wonderful day!

Hey! I just popped over from She Looketh Well. :D So glad I did- we have a lot of the same interests! I started blogging because I was a little lonely- there aren't many homemakers up here! So nice to "meet" you!

Gloria said...

Thanks ladies for the nice comments. It's so nice to meet you! I'll pop over to your blogs now to say hi.

God bless you, we need more Titus 2 women!

Stopping by for the party. Your blog is beautiful.

My blog is similar to yours. I like to share what God is teaching me in the everyday things.

I'm stopping over from the Blog Party too! I love the photo of yourself with the quilts in the background. I've never quilted. My mother-in-law quilts and I suppose I am spoiled by all the quilts she has made me--around 20 now!

You seem very creative and industrious--both wonderful qualities! It is nice to meet you! :)
