Hello! I’m so glad you stopped by my blog. I’m a wife to a fighter pilot and mom to eight amazing people. (Yes, you read that right. It’s not a typo. I have EIGHT children . . . and I can still string words together to make sentences. Go me!) We have 4 boys and 4 girls and a bonus son who was born in Heaven. We have also recently added our first daughter-in-law to our family.
We have done a fair bit of homeschooling over the years, so my house is never empty. There is never a dull moment when the Meyers Family is involved. Often, when I share our latest antics with someone, I say, “I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.”
Our family is very blessed and we have a beautiful life. It’s also a messy, loud, and chaotic life. I’m an organized, clean-freak introvert who loves peace and quiet, so sometimes, I miss the beauty in the midst of everything else. Just saying the name of my blog is very helpful to me. I am so very blessed. I am blessed far beyond the mess and noise and stress that gets me frustrated and flustered. I hope that by sharing my beautiful messy blessings with you, I can encourage you to treasure hunt for the beauty and blessing in your own messes.
Since my son’s death several years ago, I have struggled intermittently with depression, anxiety, doubt, and fear. Through my own brokenness, I have learned that if God was simple enough for my small mind to understand Him, He would not be worthy of my worship. I have decided to rest in the mystery of things that I cannot understand. I am learning how to believe anyway, cultivate gratitude, take my thoughts captive, and stand strong in a world that can really throw me off-balance if I let it. I am moving from being undone to resting my faith on that which is unshakable.
As a recovering perfectionist, I am continually in the process of learning that life does not have to conform to my idea of perfect to be truly wonderful, inspiring, and beautiful. I hope that you will find here a safe place to be real and the courage to find God in the middle of your own mess. (Because we all have messes.) Please have a seat, make yourself comfortable, and listen to my heart. I welcome your comments as we partner together to seek God’s Truth & Beauty in everyday life . . .
even if it is messy.
Because God is good.
