Trying Something New
“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”
Welcome to my Sugar Sunshine Life! It’s a new day and I’m going to try something new. I’m guessing it’s pretty obvious, I’ve started a blog!
Starting a blog page has been on my heart for some time and over the past few weeks, I have been working very hard on my website! It’s made me happy to have something to occupy my mind with and to have something that’s just mine to work on. Here is a little info to help you get to know me.
I am 19 years old and from Birmingham, AL. I’m married to the love of my life, Elijah, and we are expecting a baby boy in December of this year. Our family has a farm consisting of goats, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and bunnies. We have an adorable Border Collie named Snoopy who watches over all of our family’s farm animals. I’m a Christian and a lot of what I write will include Christ and how He influences my life every day.
About My Blog
I chose the name Sugar Sunshine Life because of Proverbs 16:24. I believe in the sweetness of words and being a light, or sunshine, in this world. It would be awesome if I could spread inspiration to people through my words and also encourage others to go and make their dreams come true. Being a blogger has been a dream of mine and to finally embrace it has been a blessing. I will be sharing my favorite homemade recipes along with my fashion favorites! I will also be sharing about things that are currently happening in my life and what’s on my heart.
Something that has inspired me to write is that I want the world to be a better place. I feel that I have a responsibility to share the good news and be a light in this world. Many women I know have inspired me through their blogs to start one of my own as well. I have always loved to write so I think when it comes to blogging I’ll have an opportunity to express myself in ways that I haven’t been able to before. Growing up I always wrote short stories to entertain myself. Now that I’m older, I’ve channeled that energy for writing into blogging.
In the past year, I have written for other bloggers so I’ve grown more knowledgeable and more experienced in that time alone. I’m thankful for those opportunities because they truly helped me grow as a writer. I got to see firsthand how a blog is run and how to use certain features and writing styles.
I hope that you turn your dreams into a reality and choose Christ every day.
