Hi, My Name is Mary Baker, I am a child of GOD, married to my best friend, Syd, and a mom to five kiddos (Genie, Melinda, Misty, Amanda, & Matthew.) I have been given the pleasure of raising my (dearest sweetest part of my heart) grandson Tyler. I love living in the country but absolutely HATE living so far out from my church family. I love hanging out on our little mini farm, enjoying our animals. I home-school my boys and love it. It wasn't something I just came up with one day on my own. God spoke to me and told me it was his desire for me to do this. I fought him for the longest but then finally one day gave in to it. I do NOT regret this either however, it has been an awesome adventure. Pro 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
I will be blogging about some of the events in our life. I try to listen to Gods still small voice and lead my family in the way God would have us to go each day. Every day is a gift from God for us to learn more from him and live the life he would have us to live. So that’s what I do my best each day doing. I absolutely love this quote and use it in my life:
Quote: “You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, and training them up in God’s fear, and minding the house, and making your household a church for God, as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of hosts.”
Charles Spurgeon —
I have come across many people who look at me in the wrong way. They “Judge a book by its cover” as is the familiar quote for this I am told. They see me as Rude, Pushy, Snobby, and I’ve been told feel as if I act somewhat “Better” than others. This is so far from the truth that I am amazed anyone can even see me this way. I am from NY and this is how you are raised up there but I thought I eliminated that from myself when I moved to Texas. If I haven’t than God has a lot more work to do with me and in me I’m afraid.
The TRUE ME:
I am very sensitive inside and especially sensitive to others hurts that it breaks my heart when they are hurting in any way. I sometimes get myself in trouble trying to help them. My husband says if you have ever watched that movie “The Blind Side” with Sandra Bullock then you will see my true character. Of course we are not as well off as she was in the movie so money is not freely available to us. That limits me in what I can possibly do to help others. Anyway … without bragging on myself too awfully much here that should give you a good idea of my character.
