Boy Mom BlogHop - 2012

Today I'm linking up to the Boy Mom BlogHop over at The MOB Society.  If you're a mama whose heart's desire is to raise a boy into a man of God and you haven't checked out this site yet, you need to.  Do yourself a favor and spend nap time reading through some of the most recent posts.  I'm pretty sure you won't regret it.

To those of you coming over from The MOB Society - Hi! My name is Joye (yes, "Joy" with an e), this is my little slice of the internets, and here's a little bit about me:

I am a born-and-raised southern girl.  I grew up on the coast of North Carolina where we had sweet tea and biscuits with every meal, and I say "y'all" fifty-eleven times a day.  I love the water; my heart will always be at the beach, but my body prefers the lake.  I have an unhealthy fear of snakes.  I'm fluent in sign language, but I'm not deaf.  My hubby and I just celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary, and we share a love of German chocolate cake.  I've been blogging since mid-2008, when I first found out I was pregnant with our now son, Ethan.  I had no idea what this blog would become, or how much I would come to love the writing process, when I started it four years ago.  Writing is therapeutic for me.

As you can imagine, I write mostly about Ethan.  He has quite the incredible story and, since a lot of you are probably new here, this post is the best place to start.  It is long, but I'd love for you to take some time to learn all about the broken heart that has completely transformed mine.

Ethan is now a energetic, snugly, strong-willed three-year old! While some days his persistence can run me ragged, I know that God has equipped him with the exact traits he'll need to live a lifetime with his special needs.

I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you'll stick around! Say "hi!" in the comments so that I can learn all about you and your boy(s), too!

Nice to "meet" you! I'm linking up today with the MOB Society as well. I think there is a lot of content out there for moms of girls on how to raise Godly girls, but we just expect our boys to grow into men. I love that moms of boys are joining together! I have an Ethan too, born in '07. We had never met an Ethan before he was born, but it seems that it is actually a popular name!

I am stopping by from the MOB blog hop (I'm still working through the list). What a precious boy you have. I find writing therapeutic as well and have found that blogging really has given me an outlet for what's in my heart. Blessings from Croatia: A Little R & R:
