The Official Start..........Week One Day One.....

Guess what girls, I've gained alot of weight over the last 10 years. My life has been consumed with being a wife, mother, teacher.....ect. I think when your kids are small we all go on survival and convience mode. What is the fastest thing I can make or eat just to get through. You are also surrounded by "kid-friendly" meals all the time. Macaroni and Cheese, chicken nuggets, hamburger, chips, mom's know what I'm talking about.

The time has come for me to step back and look at what I am doing. My blood pressure has been up and it really got my attention. I need to start thinking about health. I am going to have to learn and teach my kids to eat healthy and like it. So here we go...............our adventure begins!

A real me post..................

Here it is................a real Miranda Scheer house is a wreck and totally disorganized right now. I'm considering posting pics, but don't know how real I really want to get. I feel like I have 3 or 4 full time jobs and is needed at all of them at the same time. Job #1 - Wife Job #2 - Mother Job #3 - Teacher Job #4 - Housekeeper....but my most important job is to be a Daughter of the King. I wonder what my heavenly Father would say about all this.........? I'll let you know tomorrow, I need to ask Him.

It's been a long time since I posted on here! I will admit I have become addicted to FACEBOOK. I love facebook! It has allowed me to connect with a ton of old friends and acquaintances. You know, the people that you say, "I wonder what ever happened to them?" Now I know. Most importantly I pray that I get an opportunity to witness to them. So many people are unsaved and drifting through life with no clear direction. I pray I can be the Christian witness to them that I wasn't in junior high or high school. Time is such a fleeting thing. I really want to use my time wisely.

I've been praying about what to do with my blog. I've considered deleting it, revamping it, or going a different direction with it. I guess I want to have a set purpose for it. I mean does anyone even read it? Should I try to be a blessing to others or just be real about the ups and downs of a homeschooling family trying to do things "God's Way." I've seen tons of blogs....ministry blogs.....blogs from people who are gifted with writing.....anything you can think of there is a blog for it. But for my blog, I want to just be real, not the person I want people to think I am, but just me. There are going to be days when I vent and weep, but there are going to be others days when I shine with joy and appreciation over a child finally "getting it!" Maybe someone will stumble upon this blog and be blessed or encouraged to keep going on. So, in the next few month this blog will be under construction. I'll be adding stuff and rearranging stuff. I've even considered having some guest bloggers. So please excuse the mess......
