Friend Of The Week – Clare
I’d like to open this week’s column by thanking those of you who take the time each week to leave comments, to share a little bit about yourselves, and to answer our Question Of The Week! Not only do I appreciate your thoughtfulness, but your kind words to me and to one another really help to build a sense of friendship and camaraderie within our blogging community!
This week I’d like to introduce you to Clare – an Australian blogger who started her blog, My Life In Step, in 2015 as a way to share her life journey and to inspire and empower others to take the next step in their journey – whatever that might be!
At 35, Clare has been married to “Techman” for 12 years, and is mom to “My Little Scientist” (7 years old). “My Little China Doll” (3 years old), and “Little Bundle Of Joy” (who is due to arrive in November 2016!) Needless to say, she’s been busy preparing for Little Bundle Of Joy’s arrival with DIY projects like sprucing up the children’s bedrooms.
Since Clare does not know the gender of her child, she opted to create a gender-neutral nursery for Little Bundle Of Joy. Be sure to stop by Clare’s Baby Nursery Tour and check out her DIY Craft Projects!
Clare’s tip for cheering oneself up when you need a pick-me-up is to keep your mind busy creating things – to share a cupcake with an encouraging frined – and to reflect on the things that are going well in your life (based on Phillippians 4:8, a favorite Bible verse).
Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Clare’s day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourself, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?
Now It’s Your Turn To Share!
Question Of The Week:
Imagine that you or your spouse are expecting.
Would you prefer to know the gender of your child in advance –
Or would you rather be surprised when your baby arrives?
Please share your thoughts in the comments–
Inquiring minds would love to know!
