Let us Spur One Another in Love
“Inspirit” is a word that means to encourage, embolden, or inspire. Does it mean I am always inspirited? Of course not. By God’s grace, I have my moments of weakness, but He encourages me to keep going.
As a homeschooling mom of two, I started this blog as a digital diary in 2013. I was teaching our children at home while building our family. It is not the same season a decade later. I am learning new things and getting out of my comfort zone. I am excited by new discoveries about myself, and sharing them with you.
The Lord allowed me to see my purpose outside of caring for my family. He reminds of my talents untapped skills I can use to enlarge my territory, like the prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10.
“Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.”
My name is Jude and I created Inspirited Mom. I wouldn’t be a mom without my husband for 20 years and my two (now) teenaged children. This year is my 14th year of homeschooling and my last. It is a true bittersweet journey for me and my children. I have no regrets despite the challenges of teaching them. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
My husband is my partner in everything. He is my firm supporter and staunch enemy lol. We don’t have a perfect marriage, but we are working on becoming better every day.
I am a content writer and self-published author of the devotional, 30 Ways to Be a Better Mom. My dream was to become a writer, but I took up dentistry instead and became a certified dental practioner. Then, I started a small food business at home with my husband. I didn’t write until I became a mother. I rediscovered my love for the written word when I became a mom. And the rest, as they say, is history.
The family has two recent additions. We finally have our home. It’s not the perfect home, but it’s a simple dwelling for the family. Oh, and that little bushy tailed creature is our 1-year-old Jack Russell mix, Chippy. She is the love of our lives and the destroyer of our home lol.
Do you like drama? There might be some dramatic moments here, but they have a redeeming value.
Life can get hard for a Christian woman. We are not always joyful, hopeful, and spirit-filled. But we find joy in adversity and hope in uncertainty. If we are not perfect, how do we expect to live a perfect life? It is time to get real, sister. We have an exciting journey that is best lived with Christ.
Oh, if you’re in for the drama, I have a thank you freebie for you.
I hope you stick around for some noteworthy posts.
