MamaHall: making the most of it

hey there, yall. i'm eryn.

i'm just an ordinary girl serving an extraordinary God, sharing stories and hope and encouragement here in this online space.

my husband and i have two awesome kids. we live in Texas and we homechool. i love being my kids' mom.

i've been blogging since 2005, the year my daughter was born. my degree is in communications and i was a journalist, a reporter, and editor before i was a mom. now i write here! i love words and research and etymology. i also love Jesus and the Word of God. how cool that now i can do all my favorite things at once!

i am an upsidedown blogger with a passion for using my words to point to Jesus.

i am one of the hostesses of Declare, a Christian conference in Dallas for women with online presence.

i love God's Word and consider myself an "at home missionary," doing what i can to fulfil the Great Commission and #endbiblepoverty.

i believe God makes life beautiful, so i'm committed to making the most of every moment by seeking, serving, and praising Him.

"But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is."
Ephesians 5:15-17 NIV
