I always thought I would have girls. I pictured myself seated on a comfy chair, quietly reading books to sweet little girls. But God knew better.
Welcome to my blog, To Show Them Jesus. I am Christina and I am the mom of two active boys, Ethan (7.5) and Ian (4.5). We live in sunny South Florida, on the east coast. My boys have stretched me in ways I never knew I needed stretching. Through this journey of motherhood, I have learned so many things about myself and have seen my need for God in deeper and more profound ways.
Yes, God knew just what I needed.
This blog is a place where I live out redemption’s story, from the inside out. I write transparently, with an open heart, sharing all the ways God is changing me through my life as a mom, a wife, a writer, and homeschool teacher. I write here about struggles with depression and my journey to knowing and trusting God in deeper ways through that battle. I also share stories of how I share the gospel of grace with my boys, including conversations, hands on activities, books, and teaching moments.
As an avid reader, I often share about the books I am currently reading as well as books I am reading with my boys. Currently, my oldest is enjoying the old, blue, classic Hardy Boys series. He’s also enjoyed the science fiction stories by Jules Verne, books by Roald Dahl, and anything scientific or historical.
I am in the process of writing a book and am terrified of the process. I could use all the prayers I can get–won’t you pray for me?
Thanks for stopping by here! It’s so nice to “meet” you!
