Welcome to the first post on my “new” blog and website! I’m Amy, also known as Mommy Muddling, and I’m delighted you are here! This site is “new” because I’ve decided to start from scratch again even though I’ve had this website for a couple of years! And what better way to kick things off than to share with you why I am here and sharing my thoughts, life and creations?

I suppose it’s simple…and complex. The short and simple answer is that I am here to express who I am, for a legacy of sorts and to influence a little piece of the world in a positive way. It is always my hope to spread the light and love of Jesus, in whatever way I am able. Maybe through words and pictures here I can do that, even just a little. And the complex answer…well, I think it’s because we all have a need to be known, a desire in our hearts to be understood and to be seen. I think it’s important to note that God sees us, knows us, understands us… better than anyone else can or ever will. (See Psalm 139!) To seek to be understood completely by humans is futile, but to express ourselves creatively can be a reflection of God and a reflection of our hearts that may not be seen otherwise. So, here I am, to express, to share life and create – with the goal to always glorify God.

I hope you’ll enjoy following along with me on this creative and mess journey of life, faith, art and crafts. As are most things when I’m involved, it’s sure to be a ride! I pray my words may be a blessing and that any images, creations or crafts that I share will shine bright for the Lord!
