I welcome you behind the scenes of The Sticky Apron and into my home with this revealing article.
My name is mom, I mean Cher B. the author of The Sticky Apron. Here are my reasons for living Gage, Payton and Holly.
Who am I?
Good question, I’ll let you know when I figure that out. All joking aside; I am just trying to be the best person I can be and raise the healthiest happiest kids I can.
Where am I on my walk with God?
I need God’s grace. I’m imperfect and learning how to live the type of life Christ died for us to have. I fall short but am so amazed when I receive God’s mercy and humbled when I receive his correction. Right now I just want to help people and share the good news of Jesus. Hopefully this blog will be a light in an infinite sea of webpages. It seems more people connect online than in person so I figured if there is a way that I could really reach people it would be here, on the vast internet.
What’s my story?
If you would have read this section just a year ago it would have said I’m a stay at home Navy wife but that isn’t true anymore. As a Christian, divorce is the most difficult choice I have ever had to make. It is tempting to like Bob Ross use happy little words to paint a beautiful picture describing my journey. It won’t help you and it won’t make me feel any better to sugar coat the truth. Divorce is painful even when you have biblical grounds for divorce, it hurts. Right now we are all relearning how to live and I can certainly tell you that it is by the grace of God. I am now a working mother of three learning how to balance life, manage my time and chronic illness. As a perfectionist it is near impossible to have everything just the way I would like it. Right now we are singing a lot of Frozen’s Let it Go because holding on to all the stress of perfection could drive you mad! It is my hope that along my journey I can use the lessons I learn to help encourage others.
The Sticky Apron is a blog all about bible based homemaking, messy motherhood, and after Navy wife life. Through articles, tips, tricks, and how to’s I share my experiences hoping to encourage others. “But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13 My goal is to be useful so please feel free to contact me or leave comments or questions.
There is something special about an apron; it’s what mom wipes tears away with, blows noses with, polishes her wedding ring with. Despite the stains, frey, and holes on an apron covering a beautiful dress it would seem like without it mom was missing an important accessory to her outfit. To put it simply her apron is a memory keeper of all the love and hard work she does serving others, it is her humble trophy.
This is a photo of my Grandma Jane’s apron. This is also the apron that I cook in today. I am sure there are more stylish aprons with out the stains but this apron is special. All the love my Grandmother spent preparing meals and serving her family she did in this apron. Every time I put it on I feel like she is with me giving me a hug. I will be proud to pass it down to my daughter.
