Blog Party!


I'm trying to lighten up my design a bit for spring since it's 66 degrees in Madrid today! It's kinda pink for me, but I was thinking about tulips!

I decided to join in the fun of the blog party being hosted over at www.5minutesformom.com
It's truly amazing to me how you can build community with people you have never even met! I'm looking forward to meeting some new people. Even though I'm not technically not a work at home Mom since we are church planting, I know I will enjoy the community.

So if you are stopping by for the first time, my husband and I are planting a church in Madrid Spain, where we have lived for the past five years. We have two kids; Meaghan is 10, Nicolas is 7. I enjoy writing, and am hoping that one of these days maybe it will provide some income!

Anyway, this post will be at the top until the end of the week, so scroll down for other posts!

Hi. I just stopped by via the party blog. My husband and I did a church plant in WV - it was hard but we learned so much. Now we live in WA state. Spain - wow that's interesting. Do you love it?

Heather said...

Thanks for stopping by!

I do love Spain and church-planting, although that took awhile :)

Great blog!

Wow, that's really cool that you're church planting. Who or where are you planting from? (sorry if you're written that and I just totally missed it!)
This is a great party. You can carry on the partying over at my blog if you want - I'd love to have to over :-)

I thought your "about me" - was something that we all should adhere too!!

I do so luv your blog - and your church planting is refreshing and again needed in this uncertain world that we inhabit.

Every good wishes for the future.
