This might seem a little odd to those of you who regularly read my blog, especially since most of you are family ;), but I'm joining the Titus 2 party hosted over at She Looketh Well. The first step to joining in on the fun was to invite friends, which I did; then you write a post about yourself and link to She Looketh Well so that people you don't know but are in on the party can come check out your blog. It's a neat way to get to know some new people who probably have similar goals of following their biblical calling.
So, without further ado...
Welcome to Random Thoughts!
My name is Cristy. I am a wife and mother. My family lives in St. Petersburg, Russia; which is always an adventure.
This is the place that helps me stay connected to my friends and family on the other side of the globe. My hopes were to keep interested people updated on Isaiah's growth and development, what life is like in Russia and how our ministry here is progressing. I think that I predominantly write about Isaiah, however. :) He does occupy most of my time, which is tons of fun!
My heart is to serve my Lord by following the calling that He has given me by first being a godly wife and mother to my husband and child (soon to be children!). Where that takes place is rather inconsequential to me, though I do love that God has called us as a family to Russia.
We're all learning Russian, my husband and I through formal lessons, and Isaiah (only 3) through playdates and time with our Russian friends. He'll probably end up speaking Russian better than either my husband or me! Learning Russian has actually taught me a lot more about myself than I thought I could learn in a year and a half. It's a humbling experience which has brought me closer to God and to my husband.
So, I'm not sure how much more to say. If you would like to know more about our family specifically, there is a link on the sidebar with a picture of the 3 of us in an igloo. Feel free to check that out, too, if you have time. :)
I'm going to go meet some more bloggers now!
