Not only are there plethora of subjects about which to blog...there are many blogs within a particular genre. Since I am a Christian, a woman, and a mom, I tend to gravitate toward blogs written by Christian moms. While I do not limit myself to reading only these blogs (and recently became fascinated by blogs written young newlyweds), the majority of feeds in my blogline subscription are "mommy blogs."
The first blog I chose to highlight in 2009 is one of my favorite blogs written by a Christian mother. When I first read a post on Grace Unbound I couldn't help but think something like..."wow, and I thought I was a writer!" Loretta has a remarkable way with using words subtly to weave a profound message. Her writing is both witty and tranquil. She's wise, yet also a student of the King. I truly have been blessed each time I visit Grace Unbound and hope that you will take some time to get to know this amazing woman.
And just in case you need further convincing, here is an excerpt from her latest post:
It is a beautiful morning outside. I caught the edge of the sun as it started to rise, just tinting the sky with a band of pink and orange that blended into turquoise and then deeper shades of blue. The sun is still shining brightly and the sky is a sparkling blue. Anywhere else you’d probably be thinking “What a beautiful day to go outside.” In South Dakota, looks can be deceiving; the temperature is currently -8. I never thought that I’d live anywhere that temperatures were routinely in the negatives in the morning, but here I am. Still, it is a beautiful day for the last day of 2008.
