All my life, I feel like I struggled to find my place in this world. I was titled the “bad apple” in a bag of good apples in my mother’s home. Despite how it seemed, I can honestly say, Thank God I was considered an odd apple.
But honestly thats not where i want to start, because thats not where i am anymore! That was the life of Vigo, we are now ThoseGilligans! A couple days ago I was sitting in the car thinking, “How should I start this Blog? What would be the first post?”
While waiting in that parking lot I reached over for a devotionial, the title alone took my breath away. “Jesus Has Made the Finish Line, Your Starting Post” It read. I cried in that SUV at the revelation of God’s support and love. Where His death saved me, is where it life began for me. Thats a beautiful start for this new blogging journey!!
Despite my plans to finish off my life by age 21, God intervened. Im thankful for that, because I am now married to a hard working man, who has fathered 5 kids with me. My love of writing has returned and we’re living on our own small (a little over 2 acres) plot of earth which we aim to create into ThoseGilligan’s homestead.
So a very busy momma I am, with a family some children that’s bustling with love and life. My goal is to learn and do better for the cause, that’s called Growth! I also want to learn to enjoy it too! I AIM to enjoy all that God has set out for me. This is more than a starting post, this is the start of ThoseGilligan’s Homestead AND ThoseGilligan’s official Blog site. A place where we want to have a hand in growing and supplying a majority of my family’s food source and more. Where God’s word is planted! Where it’s a safe place to love, learn, and grow
We’ve barely scratched the surface of all that’s in store for our family here, but I look forward to inviting yous, the readers, into our life lessons, our family, our growth, and homesteading adventures!
