What is My Puddle of Thoughts about?

Older posts will cover topics related to my years early mothering: my children, my miscarriages, and my time leading a MOPS group at a former church.

I started blogging as an outlet of working through some grief and emotions after a miscarriage in 2007. My blog has kinda evolved into a reflection of who I am and my interests. I write because it is my personal form of therapy, yet I hope you find something here you like.

What’s interesting is I have, in a fashion, documented here at my little blog the very personal journey of my faith and what I believe. I’m such a different person than I was in 2007 when I started writing. Beliefs have definitely shifted. My worldview has changed. My faith has been transformed. Why? Because I started asking myself this: Why do I believe what I believe? It’s a difficult question, but a necessary one. It’s a question that has turned my world upside down, but I’m glad it has. And it’s led to much of what I’m writing now.

I write here for me. I write here because I need to process everything that swirls around in my head. My story isn’t complete, but it’s one I can genuinely embrace now.  Over the years, as I deconstructed from a conservative, evangelical construct to a more progressive worldview, I’ve learned to love myself and accept who I am. And that’s what I try to document here in my little corner of the internet.  I hope something I say resonates with you or at least allows you to understand those around you.

Peace to you all!

  1. Hi Mandy! I just wanted to reach out and say, “Hello.” It seems you and I have a surprising amount in common. Hope you are doing well this holiday season. 🙂

    • Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Looking at your blog, yeah, it appears we might. 🙂

      I’ve been working on a little book I wanted to write and haven’t blogged much lately. Plus, I think much of what I want to say might make too many people upset in my circles.

      Take care!

      • Hi! Thanks for looking at my blog. 🙂 I am certain much of what I say upsets a variety of people in my circles! Then again, my circles have a changed a bit over the past few years.

        Congrats on your book!
