Welcome! {Ultimate Blog Party 2013} — 35 Comments

  1. Hi! I thought I’d stop in and show a little love by dropping a comment. I’m surfing on over from the UBP! I’ve recently fallen back in love with going to church and I couldn’t be happier. Life is good and I love being a part of my children getting to know God. I hope you’ll stop by and say hello, too.

    Party on! ::: Tossing Confetti :::

  2. Good morning! Thanks for the sweets. It is such a treat to find a fellow mom with older kids blogging. Mine are 21, 20 and 16. Sometimes it can get lonely out here. I wish more mom’s with older kids had the time and energy to stay connected because we sure need each other. I look forward to reading more. I have a friend who lives life with a side of coffee, I plan on sending her your way! Amy

    • Amy, I am so thankful for your visit. Yes, us “older” moms can get lost in a sea of diapering, toddling mamas, but I believe we have a purpose to help encourage those with the little ones. I look forward to visiting your blog and following you along in your journey! Blessings!

    • Alyssa! Oh my goodness, yes I remember you! I am thankful you stopped by to visit my blog, so that I could reconnect with you. I am heading over to your blog right now! Blessings!

  3. I didn’t know that you had 4 children! I’m so glad I was able to read this little bit about you. What a beautiful bride your daughter made!

  4. Hi, Barbie. I love your line in your intro: freshly brewed grace
    I’m visiting from UBP and so glad to find out about your nice blog. What a neat ministry in prayer and nice-looking family.
    May God bless your blog ministry as well as all of your others. I’d love to have you participate in my new blog hop that starts May 3rd on Bible Love Notes.
    Hope to see you there,

    • Are you sure? I could have sworn I’ve seen your face in the comments before. I do have a new design? Ha! Well, I do hope you will come back. I do love reading your blog. Have a nice day, and fun at the party!

  5. Tears….ok waterworks that you are taking this step on something I know you have wanted to do for so very long and I know you will make such an impact and they will also make such an impact on you as well! I am so thrilled you took the step, you jumped on it, the hubs gave you the nod and you will be on your way spreading his word and helping others and that thrills me. I would love to do missionary trip one day, as for now my health and the fact I couldn’t leave Kelcee a minute lol wont allow it but hey in ten years it maybe an option for me! I love that you are doing this and I am thrilled and so very proud of you! Summer

    • Awe Summer, you are the best. God will open doors for you, for those things that are in your heart. It’s all in His timing. Hugs!

  6. Hi Barbie..I just wanted to comment on the sweet picture of your family. Cute kids! And your daughter was a beautiful bride! I also know you will love having a son-in-love…we enjoy ours so very much. (I know Kyle wasn’t there a lot while you were there visiting Lynnette…but did you get to enjoy some of his humor? He makes me laugh until I cry sometimes…and I just love him to pieces!!!)

    Enjoy your blog party!

    Love, Linda

    • Thank you Linda! Your grandkids are wonderful people. I got a kick out of Harrison and his coffee drinking. I love having a son-in-love. He’s truly a God send. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to hang out with Kyle too much. He turned in early in the evenings, but I can see he is a very sincere, humble and funny guy. I will be back for a visit. I told Lynnette once a year! Blessings!

  7. Hi Barbie,

    It’s so nice to “meet” you on your blog. You are one of the long-time bloggers, it’s nice to see that, so many seem to stop. Your church sounds amazing, and your kids sound like blessings.
    I’m not into coffee so much, though I am trying to drink it to help with attention problems…but you had me at chocolate!!

    much grace and peace to you this week 🙂

    • Hi Jenn. Thanks for stopping by. I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but it disappeared. Your life sounds fascinating and your kids are beautiful, and so talented. I am following you along now. I need all the help I can get in the homeschooling department!

  8. Hi Barbie, I’m actually a friend of Janet’s (frugal and focused) who I see just posted above. 🙂 Small world, I know if she loves you, I will too. Can’t wait to read more of your blog!
