{General Updates} Blog News & Life Lately

Time has really gotten away from me recently, and my blog has (once again) had a quiet spell. It’s been a crazy wonderful year so far, and I can’t believe we’re almost halfway through it! A few updates for you.

First, I’ve decided to password protect some of my posts.

I’m trying to weed out the possibility for creepers and although password protection isn’t fail-proof, it’s one step toward better protection of Caleb’s privacy and safety. I would love to share the password with you, please just request it. Even if I don’t know you very well, don’t hesitate to ask. You can leave a comment below, or reach me another way if you already have my direct contact info. (Many of my posts will still be open to the public, but I’ll be protecting most of the ones with a lot of Caleb detailing and photos.)

Second, God has been at work in my heart in a number of ways.

Recent months have been a very stretching time for me spiritually, as I’ve had to do battle with my sin and have watched God open my heart and mind to new things I had never given thought to before. I am excited to share more as it is appropriate. One of the things He has been using to grow me is a new-found tendency toward fear and anxiety since Caleb’s arrival seven months ago. Nothing but the truth of God’s Word and His Holy Spirit at work inside me is strong enough to conquer the emotions and thoughts I have been dealing with, but God is proving one day at a time that He has given me the power to overcome this sin. I have seen my desire for His Word grow by leaps and bounds through this season, and I love and appreciate His sovereign care far more now than I did last year. These are amazing silver linings to a difficult time. I hope to write more about this journey more in the weeks to come.

And thirdly, yes, Caleb is seven months old!IMG_1942

He is such a joy to our hearts, and what a little go-getter he is! Cruising along furniture for weeks now, he appears to be heading toward walking from a very young age. He gets bonks and bruises regularly as he pushes the limits of his physical abilities. But my very favorte thing about this current stage? The amazing, wet, gentle kisses he loves to hand out. They melt me!

Finally, I’ve got writings elsewhere!

While I’ve been quiet here on my own blog, I’ve been busy writing for the Glory Books Ministry Women’s Blog! You can check out a feed of my recent posts here. Beginning in July I’ll be a featured author there, so watch for twice-monthly articles.

More posts to come…

    Hi Abigail! You probably don’t remember me, but I’m one of the younger Criss girls. =) I’ve been following your blog for a while and really appreciate reading it! I would love a password, if that’s okay! ;-)

  2. I totally agree with your decision. I am a member of Me Too Moments for Moms. I don’t post many pictures of my grandkids – or kids, or my hubby. If I do I don’t say who they are.
