What is "Building A House"?

"Building A House" is a blog about my journey back to God. The name comes from Proverbs 24:3-4 (The Message), "It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; it takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies."

No, this isn't going to be a blog about making my house look pretty - at least not pretty on the OUTSIDE. But, I'm going to be working on getting my house
"pretty" on the SPIRITUAL side. I'm coming back from a pretty dark place in my life after losing 8 babies to miscarriage. This blog is about my journey back
to the Lord.

Proverbs 27:17

"You use steel to sharpen steel,
and one friend sharpens another."
Proverbs 27:17 (The Message)

Do you have wise friends in your life? Friends who challenge you and stimulate thought? Not necessarily friends who think the same as you or even believe the same as you. But, friends who make you think? I do. I haven't met many of them in real life (IRL), but I know many of them better than certain family members of mine. 

These friends have been here for me through so many things - difficult times and times filled with joy. We have disagreed with each other and we have even "shared words", if you know what I mean. Sometimes I've had to "walk away" for a breather, but I'm always drawn back in by their love and acceptance - and their ability to quickly forgive when I've done one of them wrong. They have taught me much about my Christian walk and they've helped deepen my faith in God, as well as strengthen my knowledge of Him. They challenge me to be a better person and they teach me wonderful things - as well as some really odd things that are way TMI for this blog! ;-) 

This post is for them. My Sonlight Sisters. They have taught me what being a Christian sister is all about and best of all - they accept me for who I am - flaws and all. 

Sonlight Sisters - I love you all deeply. Thank you for being who you are - for challenging me and for teaching me - and even for allowing me to teach you from my limited knowledge from time to time. ;-) I am a better wife, mother, friend, daughter and person because of you ladies. May you all be as blessed as you have blessed me!


  1. I find myself forced to respond to this post the way I respond to all things of this nature:

    "She mostly means me."

    Bwhahahahaaa! :>)
    Beautiful post! Your SL sisters love ya back!

  2. HAHA! You crack me up! But, I can't figure out who you are!
