The Ultimate Blog Party 2009!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

This type of party is perfect for a stay at home mom who is preschooling, potty training, and bloggin' lovin.' Won't you join me for a cup of coffee or tea, and some homemade cinnamon buns?

Welcome to The High Calling! My name is Beverly and I am a wife, and mommy to two. I've been blogging for about three years now. I love to blog because I have made so many real Christian relationships in this sharing, loving, uplifting community

I am so thankful that I've had the privilege of tapping into the world of blogging. Whether I need a recipe, a hymn, some advice, or a good laugh - I go to my list of links and know I'll find something.

Oh! Let me introduce you to my family. There's my husband, a true gift from God to me. He's my best friend, and he makes me laugh.

We have two princesses, Selena Anne (2) and Shana Elizabeth (5 months). Our girls have already brought us so much joy. We pray that we will raise them to God's glory.

I've already told you why I blog, but what do I blog about? Pretty much the things I love.
My Savior, my husband, my children, and my home. I also have two other blogs that I share with other marvelous women: The Christian Children's Book Review, and The Girl Inside.

What am I doing when I'm not blogging? You may catch me praying for grace to last the day, working on my
home business that I share with my mom, reading, teaching preschool to my oldest, or singing to my sweet baby.

Thanks for stopping by!! Please leave a comment so that I can visit you and meet you too!! I intend to visit many blogs and comment and basically PAR-TAY all week!

Did I mention there are giveaways?!!! There were so many wonderful choices, that it was hard to pick, but I think my top three choices would be #89 - the $100 gift card to Home Goods, donated by Home Goods, #58 - the Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer, donated by Moms Who Think, and #7 - the Ergo Baby Carrier, donated by A Giveaway Addicted Mommy. Other choices would be numbers 19, 21, 22, 41, 45, 87 and 15! Thanks everyone!
