Good Morning! Every time you visit here, imagine I have just opened the front door, with the smell of chai engulfing you, given you a big hug with a smile, and invited you in to my home. Shoes are optional (I always prefer barefoot or socks). I want this to be a place where you can join me in a cup of chai (I love chai lattes, but you can grab a cup of tea or coffee), and have fun chatting. Please, take a seat on the couch while I start the hot water.
My name is Sarah Wylie, and the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus. Right after Him is my relationship with the incredible man He sent me, my husband (TW). Next comes my fun daughters Amanda and Aimee. I’m over 30, and it’s been amazing looking back at how God has been working on my life and Tom’s life, preparing us for this exciting new adventure in life! I started this blog as we had just passed our 6 month anniversary, and we will be married for three years in a few months! For those of you ladies dealing with change, I can empathize. These past few years have brought a lot of exciting big changes for us: getting married, buying a house, re-modeling the house, new jobs, new church for me, a honeymoon baby, followed by a second one! Through it all God has been teaching me to lean on Him completely, and take one day at a time. I love people, and have a heart to share with women. I hope to encourage you in whatever you are going through, and use this as a place where women can encourage each other and share lives. You are not alone.
Along with all the other changes, I have also been learning about different lifestyles people live, and how you can research, and change if you desire. I grew up going to the doctor for every little cough/cold, and took medicine for everything. I thought the only option in America for having a baby was the hospital. Although I grew up cooking from scratch, (I was a mk (missionary kid) in Asia), eating natural and organic was never discussed. My grandma used to have a garden when we would stay with her on furloughs (a year sabbatical from the mission field), but it was small and I was taught it was more for fun than for nutrition or sustenance.
My husband grew up with a much more natural outlook on health care and food. It’s been a steep learning curve to navigate my way through a new world of living, and I’m still just scratching the surface with learning new ways of doing things. One of the things he has encouraged me to do is research, and not just take what everyone says is “normal” as the best option. I will share with you things I’ve learned through this, especially the relational aspects, and new things I continue to learn. But know that I respect your decisions, and realize that not everyone agrees with me. I’ll mainly just encourage you to do your own research, and if you need some tools about where to look, I can share what I’ve been learning.
As you can see, I need lots of input also, and will be asking you for different ideas too. I’m also a young mom who is seeking to live intentionally. Please feel free to ask questions, or share information. I have not set a scheduled time to write, as I am working my way into being more organized. But I will respond to any comments as soon as I am able. Since this blog is meant to be encouraging women in life and in their walk with the Lord, any inappropriate comments/language will be removed (this is a family friendly blog 😉 ). I can’t wait to begin sharing life with you!
I am not a doctor, nor do I have a professional medical or culinary degree. I am certified as a massage therapist, but that and personal experience as a mom are the only things I have under my belt.
I love to do research, and have done a lot since getting married and becoming a mom. I love to share interesting information, or things I’ve experienced, since learning from other people’s experiences have helped me throughout my life. Sometimes I’ll share information that I have not personally experienced, but think might be of interest to others.
