Hi! My name is Brianna Lambert, and I’m so glad you stopped by. I am a mom of three little ones under 6. Currently I’m learning to navigate homeschool while trying to keep up on the beautiful everyday crazy. I love to laugh, talk, and sometimes sit and watch our pet ducks do silly things. Most of all, I love to write. I love to work out the truths God is teaching me through writing, and I hope it can be used to encourage others. You’ll find some of my writing at various online publications, as well on this site!
My husband David is my greatest friend and sweetest gift. He works as an engineer, but has always loved photography. In each picture he works to capture the beauty God displays throughout creation. The photography on my own blog posts is all captured by David, and together, we hope to use it all to echo the beauty of our great Lord.
If you are looking for a place to start here are some articles that shed a little background about us:
- This piece at Fathom tells the story of the infection I suffered after the birth of our first child, and the ways it revealed the goodness of the God who allows pain.
- Five Years After “I do” gives some thoughts on our first five years of marriage.
- This piece at Morning by Morning is what keeps me writing, reading, and coming back to this crazy new thing called the internet- because it too is a gift from God.
- Why the Mommy is Crying is just some fun. Sometimes I like to write for the joy of laughing at myself 🙂
Why Looking to the Harvest?
We live out in the country surrounded by corn and bean fields, and each year I can see how much work the farmers put into their fields with the hope of producing a good harvest. As my husband and I strive to raise our children and steward the opportunities God has given us, I find such similarities in our own lives and in the promises found in Galatians-
“For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:8-9
I have often held onto verse 9 as encouragement for the hope ahead, but I find the verse before it so necessary as well. If I’m honest, most of my days I toil and strive by my own flesh, in my own strength, and my own plans. It’s my prayer that each day I will sow to the Spirit- in His strength, in His power, and by His grace alone. It’s only then that I know all this work is not in vain, and I can look toward the beautiful harvest He will produce.
I hope you will join me along the way!
