Faithfully Following

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:2-4 NIV)

Following is hard. I find myself always wanting to be the leader. I come by it honestly; I am a mother and K-8 teacher. Being the leader is what I do. But it's been a rough few years for the Krost family, and so a change is in order. It's time to get "back to basics".

That's where this blog comes in.This is my new attempt to organize the happenings of the Krost family. But it's also a place for me to try to put all the pieces together, step back, and see how God's hand is working in the life of my family. I desire to be a better follower: of God, of my husband, and of those placed in authority over me. I hope that through the trials and joys of daily life I can grow in maturity, until I am "not lacking anything", as James 1:4 so beautifully writes. Will you follow with me?
