Today is The Day! It’s Day 1 of my blog journey!

8 No tags Permalink 0

So today is my first day of posting on my blog and I am SO EXCITED! Thanks to many prayers and words of encouragement, I was able to take a step of faith and begin a blog. I am so grateful for every prayer and encouraging word ever spoken to me. Those things gave me the courage to believe that perhaps God has a larger plan for my hobby of writing. I thank each person who encouraged me to begin a blog and to continue writing because here we are today. 🙂

I have no idea of where this blog will lead me but I am thankful and extremely grateful for supportive friends and family that believe in me.  Most of all, I am thankful for friends and family  who take time to read what God places on my heart each day.

My true desires for my blog are to uplift, encourage and inspire others to have hope and believe in their dreams.  More importantly, to develop the faith to believe that all things are truly possible with God.  He has such great plans for our lives that would blow our minds if He began to reveal all of them to us right now!  As I continue to post what God places on my heart, I look forward to growing and learning with each person who visits.  My blog is not just my journey but it’s OUR journey–it’s the journey of each person who visits because my hope and prayer is that each person will take away something different.  So, before we begin our journey with the very FIRST POST, I want to say thank you, God bless you and I love you.  =)

Welcome to my (Erika The Encourager’s) blog…let our journey begin… =)




p.s. If you follow my posts on Facebook, please note that I will continue to post to Facebook however, I will begin including a link that leads to my blog since the post box on Facebook is somewhat small.  We now have more space to share with one another & grow together! =)
