I’m Tresta, homeschool mom of four and wife to Tim. I serve God imperfectly, sometimes grudgingly, but I am His and I know He loves me.
Why I Write
I write because it’s easier for me than talking. Spoken words can be laborious for me but typing out the thoughts gives them anchorage and weight, and it’s the best way for me to evaluate my logic. Or lack thereof.
Writing makes me think deeper.
I write because I forget. When there are messes and crumbs and papers strewn all about, when the to-do list is longer than my leg, when nobody is doing what they are supposed to and the noise level is unbearable, I forget that I prayed for all this. Prone to wander, I am.
I write because I forget that God is always good. Can you believe it?
What I write
I’ve tried to stick to three loose categories here: Balance, Perspective, and Simplicity. I’m really no good at labeling my posts and I prefer to just write and let you decide how to categorize them. That makes things a little unorganized, I suppose.
You won’t find any DIYs here, unless you count the retelling of my mishaps as things NOT to do yourself. You won’t find too many recipes. Not much in the way of helpful lists like “12 Ways to Avoid Laundry”. But I hope you find some encouragement and a good dose of me, too!
