Welcome to my life in words!

Welcome to Blonde Moments and Bubble Baths!  What I hope to be an inspirational, encouraging and helpful blog about the lessons the Lord is teaching me as I try to navigate this journey called my life on the way to my destiny.

I know the first question you may ask.  Why would anyone care about the goings on in the life of a self-confessed ditzy blonde?  And the only way I know to answer that is.....for some reason which defies logic, but defines grace, God has asked me to speak into the lives of women.  Having walked on both sides of that proverbial fence in the life of a Christian - obedience and disobedience - I've decided that doing what He asks of me really does suit me much better than doing my own thing, so as crazy as it seems, I believe Him to do His 'immeasurably more' thing with the meagerness of my efforts.

To be completely honest, I'm not exactly sure what this will look like once it develops, which leads me to one of the latest things God has been teaching me - "Have a vision, but live your today, and let Me lead you to your tomorrow.  Then day by day you will arrive at those things which I have promised you at the perfect time and fully prepared."  Which is really kinda cool for you who will follow this, cause you never know what He's gonna do from one post to another!  Gives ya something to look forward to!

And finally, why Blonde Moments and Bubble Baths? Because I felt the title described me pretty completely in 5 short words. I sometimes feel as if I live from one Blonde Moment to the next in the natural and the spiritual......just a little 'out in space' on occasion, which makes the ability to laugh at yourself a very necessary trait, and takes the appreciation of the grace of the Lord to a whole 'nother level! 

Now on to the Bubble Bath part.  Anyone who knows me knows that I am a Bubble Bath girl.  That's my "Manthie Time" to relax and allow the worries of the day to wash off of me.  As a matter of fact, I just compiled an inspirational book for women titled "Bubble Bath Moments" (see photo).  Feel free to contact me for purchasing information.  All prejudice aside, it really is an amazing book, and it will bless the socks off of ya.

So, I invite you to join me through the struggles, falls, revelations and victories as I journal my process.  Hopefully we all will come to know the Lord in new ways, allow Him to mold and make us into the women He created us to be, and somewhere along the line discover exactly who that is and cheer for each other as we walk in our promised land!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11

Abundant Blessings to you!
