Welcome fellow bloggers! I just love blog parties, don't you? Its fun to find new and interesting blogs that are out there. So, if you are here for the first time visiting through the UBP 2011, then I shout out a hearty welcome! I will introduce myself...
I am first of all, a disciple of the Lord and Master Jesus Christ. I am slowly and painfully learning what it means to die to myself and live wholly for Him. I call myself on this blog Saint Shellie only because I know who I am in Christ. I by no means feel as if I'm better than anyone else, but just as the early Christians were referred to as saints even when they were living sinful lives, because they had been bought with the precious blood of Christ, they were saints in Him. And so I identify myself as a humble saint in the Lord.
Secondly, I've been a wife to my dear hubby for 20 years and a mom and home educator to my 2 sons. And now at the age of 40 I have a new son, who is now 8 months old! Whew! That will either keep me young or ultimately show my true age!! LOL!
This blog has been a way for me to share my joys and frustrations in sanctification. God growing me up, in other words.
So, some of the things I enjoy is blogging... (who would of thought?), reading and learning from those who have gone before us... a.k.a. the Puritans, Missionaries, and other biographies. I also love to read fiction that has strong Christian content. An example would be the Lamplighter Publishing books.
I am a young earth creationist, believing the Bible beginning with the very first verse. I love Answers in Genesis and our favorite place to visit is the Creation Museum.
So, that's a little about me. I hope and pray that whoever reads what I have to say here will be blessed and encouraged in some way. As followers of Christ, we are called to be salt and light. I hope my blog will be just that.
Now, its time for me to go check out some new bloggers. And hopefully meet some new friends.
