Hello!

Hello everybody!
This is my first attempt at blogging- hopefully you'll enjoy it! I decided to do this so I could keep in touch with my friends and possibly encourage other young wives. In case you don't know, I have now been married for almost 7 months. That's not really very long I know, but it's amazing to me because it doesn't seem like it's been that long! My life has changed dramatically in the last 7 months! I went from living in my parents house with my 8 brothers and sisters on a farm in Florida to being married to a wonderful Godly man, Josh, and living in an apartment in a small town in Ohio. I miss my family a lot, but I am so thankful for my husband and his parents. I truly am richly blessed!
All of my life I have dreamed of being a wife and mother. The kind of husband I dreamed about always seemed to good to be true, but here I am now married to a man who is better than I could have ever dreamed. He may not be perfect but neither am I! Now we get to grow and learn together for the rest of our lives.
I always wanted to be the perfect wife. Now I know that I have a LOT of learning and growing to do before I'm even close to being a prefect wife. One of the blessings that I'm most thankful for is that I have a perfect and loving God who will always be with me and help me learn and grow, and also I have a wonderful husband who loves me even though I'm not perfect.
My hope for this blog is that it will be an encouragement to young wives and young women who are hoping to be married someday. I will share some of the things that go on in my happy un-perfect life, and some of the things I learn, and the things that encourage me along the way. I hope you enjoy it! God bless you in your richly blessed life!

Brittany, I'm glad I found your blog. I hope that you know that even after 30 years we are not perfect wives. But, our part is to keep trying. I moved 1000 miles away from my family when I was 21. Thirty years later I still miss them but call every day now that I have free long distance. That helps.

This is my daughter in whom I am well pleased. She was the perfect daughter and her mother and I are very proud of her. Brittany, you will be a blessing to many and, God willing, the mother of thousands who take dominion of His creation, for His glory, and by His command! We are so very thankful that God brought you Joshua and his wonderful family. God is good.
