Blogging with Purpose

My friend included me on this Mission Blog Tour where we all write the purpose of our blog. I have thought about it for days and have not had the opportunity to actually type it and post it... but that is my life as a New Mom.
Mission Blog Tour hosted by Angela at Becoming Me, head over there to read hers and many others or join in.


My Blogger Purpose for
Atlanta Mama's Expressions:
...to share my life with others in hopes of connecting, encouraging, and supporting one another.
Over there on the side, under my head shot, you'll see that it says my life is multi-faceted, as most New Mom's are...
I started this blog to share the funny stories of getting spit up on just before leaving for church, making up songs about poo poo and pee pee, and how I recently nursed my son in a bath room stall (there was no place to sit down) and a lady came in to do what she needed to do next to us, but she had some loud gas which echoed up from the potty... my 10 month old popped off, smiled at me & then laughed out loud! You don't teach 'em everything!!
I started this blog to share what God is teaching me and what he is doing in our lives. We are learning a lot about praying for God's Kingdom to come and His will to be done here on earth, here in our community, here in our family... as it is in Heaven.
I started this blog to offer support on nursing, pregnancy, staying healthy, and getting on a first-time-Mom schedule (which is really more like a repeating routine).
I started this blog to ask questions of others... How many naps should he take and for how long? How much food does he need at this age? And other New Mama issues... trying to get him to sleep in his own room... making baby food... crawling... and more!

We've all heard that having a family is amazing, but it doesn't come with an instruction guide. That is why we turn to the Bible and the collective wisdom of family, friends, and bloggers!!

Thank you for being part of this journey and thank you for your feedback. Please enjoy reading past blog post on my site while are here!
