Ten years ago yesterday, August 19, 2008, RefreshHer began its existence! This week is RefreshHer’s 10th Birthday!
Wow. It’s hard to believe.
I have written 2,463 blog posts, posting five days a week most of the time. The exception was the last two summers, when I’ve taken a little break and posted three times a week.
When I hit “Publish” on that first post, I had little idea about what I was doing. I also had no idea how long I’d really keep writing, but I knew I wanted to give it a try. Let me answer a few questions for you concerning my blog:
Why I started it: In my first blog post , I extended an invitation to the ladies of my church to get involved in the ladies’ ministry at Boones Creek. My desire was to have a way to stay connected with my ladies through the week, via this blog. I pray that “my ladies” do read. I have several that let me know they’ve read a post and that always encourages my heart, since this was the beginning reason for this blog!
I also began writing because I’ve always had a love for writing. This would be my outlet!
My mission behind RefreshHer – I state in my header that I desire to refresh women in their hearts, homes and lives.
Heart – Spiritual matters are the most important. Where we will spend eternity, how to have a relationship with God, and how to live for Him in our lives as women are the matters I desire to refresh.
Home – Making good food, creating an inviting atmosphere, and tips to make home the best place for our families is what I long to inspire in other women.
Lives – We all deal with trials, relationship issues, and things that stump us. I seek to give biblical advice on dealing with the things our lives bump against in this sinful world.
This week I’m going to share some of my favorite recipes and posts from the 10 years I’ve been blogging. I hope you’ll come back tomorrow and reminisce with me!
How long have you been reading Refreshher? How did you find me?
Joyfully thankful for 10 years!
