Welcome to my little corner of the web! I am happy that you are here and I hope you are here to stay! My name is Jessica and I am a wife to my amazing husband Andre and mama to two precious and energetic boys Tarzan and Little Hulk. Life is never dull around here that’s for sure!
I started this blog because I wanted a place where I can inspire and encourage others to live an intentional life. In today’s society, we are bombarded with so much stuff that we lose sight of what is important. We are just too busy! Business can cause you to stress and not focus on what really matters in your life. So I wanted a little space on the web where I can share my thoughts, ideas, provide encouragement and inspiration to those seeking to be more intentional. I will be covering different topics like homeschooling, frugal living, Christian faith, motherhood and intentional living.
This year when everyone was writing their New Year resolutions, I wrote down one word that I would concentrate on throughout the year. Can you guess my word?? I’ll give you a clue….my site is named right after it…you guessed it! My word is intentional. I have been feeling the Lord leading me to be intentional in ALL I do. Sometimes I struggle because I get caught up with everything I need to do, but with God’s guidance, I am able to stay on track. It’s not easy at times but I’m determined to be purposeful in all the areas of my life. One of my favorite verse in the Bible is “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
If God has called me to be intentional than He will equip me to do just that! Now, let us get to know each other a little better. I will go first and share 10 random things about me….
