I’m Moving… Come With Me!

Hey everybody!

I hope this Thursday finds you blessed.

I have some exciting news to share – this blogging lady is moving – moving sites that is!

Since I’ve gotten more into blogging, I’ve been limited by wordpress.com in some blogging areas… so after much research and plenty of guidance from my wonderful techie husband, I have made the transition from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.

Shout out to all the wonderful bloggers out there who have made this transition before and posted such helpful guidance on the topic! (specifically thinking of Amanda, whose posts were ultra helpful!)

I would be honored if all you readers would make this transition with me – my biggest fear is that I would lose contact/connection with all the wonderful bloggers that I’ve met recently.

So..drumroll please…  our new bloggy website is www.choosingpeaceblog.com – so cool and such a blogging dream come true!

If you follow me on Bloglovin’ (insert shameless plug here that if you don’t, you should) then you don’t need to worry about anything.  Feel free to visit my new site, but know that if you already are a follower of mine on Bloglovin, that wonderful website will transfer all my followers for me! So there should be no issue there.

If you are subscribed to my blog in another fashion (email, wordpress, etc.) you should (hopefully!) be okay, also.  I am currently using a plug-in to transfer you guys over.

Thank you for being patient with me during this transition…

I look forward to seeing you all over at Choosing Peace 🙂



Thoughts to Process

I never thought I would be writing a blog… I mean, I’ve followed other blogs for years, and I even blogged for my college’s admissions department last year – but I never thought about putting my own personal, and very real, thoughts and feelings out for the world to see.  I’ve realized, though, that as I’ve transitioned through many changes this past year, writing helps me to process what I’m going through.  Writing about my crazy busy school semester; writing about getting engaged and married 6 months later; writing about being  a full-time student and working part-time, all while still trying to be a good wife, daughter, sister, and friend; writing about my journey of seeking God; writing about my desire to know God more; writing about how the Lord is working in my heart and in my life.  Writing helps me process these things.  When thoughts, feelings, prayers, and memories are written down, I can look back and see how God has worked in my life and in the lives of others.

So I’ve decided to make these writings public because:

1. I know I’m not in this alone.  My prayer is that God would not just use my written words to reveal Himself to me in my life, but that He might use my written words to bless others, whether they be people I know personally, or someone who stumbled upon this blog by chance.

2.  Simply accountability.  You see, when I record my thoughts, feelings, etc. in my own private journal for only my eyes, there is truly no motivation for me to be consistent.  There’s nothing wrong with private prayer journals, in fact, I will still be writing in mine because certainly not everything is meant to be shared.  But I pray that people who read this blog would keep me accountable, so that I might constantly be processing and searching for how God is at work – in my marriage, my friendships, my schooling, my workplace, and my church.  

I know God is constantly at work and moving, and I no longer want to be content with sitting back and just waiting for those occasional neon flashing lights He shows us.  I want to pursue Him and seek His heart.  “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13

In the midst of the chaos and transitions of life, I want to seek the Lord and His peace in my life.  I’m choosing peace.

Will you join me in this journey of seeking the Lord and seeking His peace in the chaos of life?
