Guest Post From: Our Joy, His Glory

What is one of the best parts of blogging?  Connecting with other bloggers and learning from them.  I am so excited to introduce you to Leslie from Our Joy, His Glory!  She is going to tell you a little about herself today… I hope you will check her out on
Hey y'all!  I'm Leslie from Our Joy...His Glory.  

That's me when I was about 7 months pregnant with baby no. last (3)!

I've been blogging for over six years.  In that time, my blog has gone from posts strictly about my kiddo(s) to all sorts of things.   I enjoy writing about my three girls, homeschooling, crafting, photography, decorating, family life, and my Savior.  I love how blogging connects people.  It's my favorite form of social media *ahem* with Instagram in close second! *Click over to my blog and follow my Instagram! Just kidding...maybe? pressure.*

My husband, Graham, and I have been married for nearly 11 years.  We have three little girls! THREE GIRLS!  Yes, our hands are full!   Ava Grace is 6.5, Edy Rose is 4, and my little Joy Tatum will be a year next month.   In my former life, I taught 5th and 6th grade so I'm putting that to good use and homeschooling my beauties! *Wow!  That's something I never thought I'd say!*  It's a new adventure and I'm learning a lot.  My poor AG is the guinea pig child so hopefully all the kinks will be worked out by girl no. 3!  I jest!

We are native Arkansans, but now call the Lonestar State home.  We have been here for close to four years and I have been fixing up our house as we have the money.   I blog about home updates nearly every week or so.  It's fun to see our house transform into a home that we truly enjoy.  

Since I am a SAHM, I find that blogging is a special sort of outlet.  It's a way for me to talk about Jesus and to give Him the glory publicly.  I am so thankful for His Word!  He is teaching me daily to be the wife, mama, teacher, and friend that He has called me to be.  I screw up a lot, but I'm thankful for His grace, His patience, and His guidance.

I love to make little graphics!  Feel free to steal this one!

About the name of my blog--OUR JOY...HIS GLORY:

No matter the circumstances, I have JOY because of my relationship with God through Christ. No matter what, I want to give Him all the gloryWhatever you do, do all to the glory of God.  I Corinthians 10: 31

You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forever.  Psalm 16:11

Thanks for taking a little time to get to know me! Feel free to hop over to my blog and look around!
