Today I am writing to tell you more about myself and this space called She Lives Free. I am so looking forward to getting to know each of you and am very much hoping you will tell me about you and/or your blog in the comments! My name is Sybil and I am a homeschooling mom, wife, and licensed counselor turned blogger.

I have been married for twelve years to my high school sweetheart and we are blessed with two beautiful girls we adore. I’m crazy about cappuccino, sunshine, warm weather¬†and finding the beauty in each new day (no matter what the weather)! The beach is my happy place, where’s yours? ūüôā

I believe in living and giving with abundance & intention. I believe in living life on purpose & making each day count. I believe there is beauty in the broken. I write at She Lives Free because I love sharing my faith, thoughts on marriage and parenting, home and garden projects, and my passion for all things good and beautiful!

I also appreciate the opportunity to advocate for the least of these through blog partnerships with Compassion, Gospel for Asia, World Help and LifeSong for Orphans

It’s been nearly six months since this baby blog was born and I have so enjoyed watching it grow since. I honestly never planned to become a blogger but I am a true people person who loves to talk so blogging has been a great outlet to communicate and connect with others. My hope is for this space to serve as a platform for friends to stay in touch, to form new connections with people I’ve not yet met, and to document all that I want to remember in the living of this amazing life.

She Lives Free is here to encourage living life on purpose, to the glory of God. You will find posts here sharing both the¬†broken and the beautiful¬†moments in life. She Lives Free is a place for exploring what it looks like to¬†live free, through the freedom found in Christ alone. Sometimes we talk about learning to live a life of abundant¬†health¬†as we seek balance¬†and wellness.¬†Often we discuss the joys of¬†giving,¬†volunteering,¬†¬†advocacy¬† and even¬†¬†what it means to raise¬†raise servant-hearted kids. ¬†Those themes will sometimes lead to deeper discussion on global issues like¬†orphan care,¬†adoption,¬†foster care, and¬†modern day slavery.¬†There’s also no shortage of the fun stuff to be found here like¬†gardening,¬†crafts,¬†fashion,¬†photography, and even a regular¬†friday favorites¬†feature!¬†I would love for you to join us on this journey, please feel free to connect via¬†facebook,¬†and introduce yourself! We have fun staying in touch and doing life together over there! If Facebook is not your thing, you can also follow along on Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus,¬†and¬†feedburner,¬†or even through the subscribe box on the right! Wherever you choose to connect, the one thing I want to be sure you know is, I want to know you! I love sharing stories and truly want to hear yours!

And whatever you do, don’t miss the six month anniversary blog post full of giveaways coming in just over a week!

I am so excited to be co-hosting Make A Difference Mondays with a group of amazing women every Monday beginning April 21st!
