I welcome you behind the scenes of The Sticky Apron and into my home with this revealing article.
Hi, My name is Cher B. and homemaking is my passion because it is how I serve the people I love. Being a Navy wife and a Christian stay at home mom is my duty and privilege. Words of encouragement are my passion!
My name is mom, I mean Cher B. the author of The Sticky Apron. Here are my reason for living Payton and Gage.
Who am I?
Good question, I’ll let you know when I figure that out. All joking aside; I am a Servant to God, Love to my husband, and Mother to my children. Oh and a writer, or at least I would like to think so.
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?
I am 22 years old and my passion is bible based homemaking because it is how I serve the people I love. I am a stay at home mom of two adorable (not being bias, maybe a little) kids. My son Gage is terribly wonderfully three and my daughter Payton is a year old.We are a family of six though when you add my mom and baby number 3 on the way. Crazy is the new normal. My husband and I got married Valentines day of 2011 it might seem corny but we are hopeless romantics. Our journey really got interesting though when my husband joined the Navy. We were moved from one side of the US all the way to the other side but that didn’t bother me I would follow my husband anywhere. Being a Navy wife really is the most important job in the Navy! If anyone tells you that being a Navy wife is not the most important job in the Navy than they are single and have not experienced the helping hand of a Navy wife. Now life is really great we are watching our children grow and I am growing closer to God. It’s a journey that I thought was worth blogging about. Being a mom I feel the need to help others by learning from my mistakes and sharing in my wisdom thus…read below.
What is this blog about?
The Sticky Apron is a blog all about bible based homemaking, messy motherhood, and 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.
