My one year blogger post got me to thinking about why I started blogging. This post is the main reason I wanted to blog. To talk about doctrine, theology and how that is so important for those of us at home with our children. The children that will grow up to be church leaders, community leaders and mostly glorifiers of God. In my experience I have seen a trend in women to avoid doctrine for various reasons. The one I have heard the most is "I'm not a reader". In my mind reading is a discipline just like anything else but I do realize a book loving history buff is writing that statement.....easier said then done.
As I have spent this year blogging...I have found a community of women on-line who puts my doctrine reading and studying to shame. Biblical truth seems to be the top priority on each blog I visit on a regular basis. I have been so encouraged by this and grateful to find a connection.
I have also felt that for the most part my posts tend to be "fluffy". This annoyed me slightly (still does). I think all the time...I often have much running through my mind but lack time to organize it and write it. Why? Because I am at home all day schooling my kids and serving my family. When I do have time I want to read truth and then lack the time to talk about it. I know these are the same reasons many women don't study doctrine....when do you have time especially with little ones?
I am brainstorming some ways to get more organized about my thoughts. It serves me in many ways to have to articulate what I am learning and growing in....so I want to make this work. I was wondering how you ladies go about finding the time not just to post but to collect your thoughts and organize them.
