A long, long time ago, in a far away land of Egeria, there lived a homeschooling mother certain of her need of grace, uncertain of her ability to rest in it.This website was originally created in 2010 for the sole purpose of showing off an album I recorded. The following year, as sewing became a real passion, it served as a place to showcase my creations.While I was planning my homebirth, it was used as a forum to document my birth stories. Since adding Elsie to our family in September of 2011, I have written 10 posts.In the fall of 2015, I began to have experiences that had me questioning a lot about Jamie Buckland. In the last year and a half, I have learned a bit about myself that I don't think I could have learned without the journey God laid out before me. As I update this blog over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing thoughts on how I got here and where I hope to go.I invite you to not take me too seriously unless I ask you to. I like to be sarcastic. I love to go against the grain. And I don't like to be told what to do. Ever. The Lord finds creative ways to soften that side of me and I'm thankful.Proverbs 16:9 The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
