Open Letters August

Today I am out and about with my in-laws, but I am stopping by quickly to share with you all the open letters for August! I’m sad that this will be the last linkup that Julie will be hosting, but I am thankful for the opportunity to co-host with her this month and for the connections I’ve been able to make through the linkup!

Dear Teachers Pay Teachers,

I am grateful to you for helping me provide an income for my family through creating and sharing my teacher resources. Now that I’m staying home I find it important to still contribute, even though it may be in a small way, other than raising Greyson (even though it’s been a pretty great gig). I love expressing my creativity through these products and it’s a small way I can maintain my passions for teaching while out of the classroom.

Dear small business owners,

Women like Julie and my sister-in-law Jenny are an inspiration to watch as they entered into motherhood, decided to stay home to raise their families, and still managed to start something new for themselves. I am in awe of the hard work, determination, passion, and skill that drives their businesses and am excited for what the future holds for them. It can be scary to start something new, turn it into a business, and take that first leap and I am honored to watch it unfold and grow. Once I find myself with some disposable income I’m excited to purchase something from their respective Etsy shops!

Dear church community,

When we first moved here to CA and away from my home church and women’s small group I was nervous about having to start all over again with finding the right church and community in which to belong. Thankfully a dear friend and neighbor was carrying her Bible one morning tucked under her arm and I happened to notice. I asked her which church she attended and it was then she invited my husband and I for Easter services. I fell in love and we have been going ever since. I am grateful for the community Ventura Missionary Church has provided for me and my family, which now includes Greyson. I’m looking forward to getting him dedicated this Sunday and beginning the journey into raising him according to His teachings for our lives.

Thanks again, Julie for having me as a co-host and hosting this lovely linkup these last few months!

  • glad you found community – it is so important!! my husband & i just moved to a new city last month so we are in the process of finding a new church/community as well.

  • You mentioned my Etsy shop?! You are absolutely the sweetest! I am sooo happy you found another great church to get connected to–that can be SO HARD! We spent like 2 years going to a mildly far away church and didn’t make any friends, and when we started going to a neighborhood church we made friends within like a month. So glorious. And how exciting that Greyson is being dedicated this week!!!!!! Enjoy the time with fam! Thanks for cohosting 🙂
