Welcome friends!! So glad you are here!! I am participating at the Ultimate Blog party at 5 Minutes for Mom!! 

My Name is Andrea Portilla. I am a wife, momma of 3, home educator and Jesus follower.

Working at your callings and passions with all your heart! 
And my goal is to encourage and equip women to daily surrender their lives to their Creator.

Hi Andrea,
visiting your blog from UBP#14. Nice to meet you. I took a look around your neat blog and have to tell you that we share a common place to reflect on God and have some quiet time--the bath tub : )
Most folks I know take showers, but I always like to relax in the tub and always have my "tub Bible" next to me (a Bible that has been dropped in the tub a few times and the pages are bit water marked)
God bless,
Gail (Bible Love Notes)

Visiting from UBP! Another mom of three! Great to meet you and looking forward to reading more on your blog! I have two blogs: my personal one (http://randomthoughtsfromadivamama.blogspot.com/) and my business one (http://robinsnestenterprises.blogspot.com/) about crocheting, writing, embroidery, and photography. Hope you have a great blog party week!

Lauren said...

I loved reading your story! The quote that caught me was, "The consequences to desiring our own pursuits can unravel your entire life and squander the purpose He has called you to. " I totally agree- I think we drive ourselves crazy with anxiety, control, perfection, individualism, and more, trying to avoid the will of God because we have "better plans." Thanks for sharing- look forward to reading more!

Andrea said...

So glad you came by Heidi! Hope we can stay connected!

Andrea said...

Gail, my baths have become such a great place for me to regroup after crazy days of homeschooling and diapers and craziness! I started taking one bubble bath a week since the new year and wonder why I haven't done this for years!!
