My First Post…inception

I have been throwing around the idea of starting a blog because I want to share my struggles and growth in all areas of my life. Hopefully, through sharing I can inspire and encourage others. Not only is it my goal to affect others but also to keep myself accountable for the changes I want to make and the changes I am making. At first I was like…oh yeah, I can start a blog. I mean everyone is doing it so why can’t I? Honestly, after day one I am completely overwhelmed about writing a blog. This computer coding is completely out of my realm. After one day I have realized that this is going to take up a lot of my time, of which I don’t have much. I figure though like most things there will be a steep learning curve. I have saved a document with my ideas for blogs and yesterday this idea using the word prudential seemed to stick. We will see if it is received well and if I can relay my intentions for the blog.

So, what in the world does being a Prudential Woman mean? The definition of prudent is “acting with or showing care and thought for the future.” The Bible also speaks of being prudent. In Proverbs 14:5 it says “The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.” My husband and I have started a new chapter in our life…and I am calling it financial prudence. We have been living paycheck-to-paycheck and have more debt than the Federal Government…well not really but it sure feels like it. I began to think not just about the financial aspect of my life but also other areas like my health, spiritualality, parenting, marriage, friendships, and community/church involvement. So I thought, well being prudent in all areas of my life would do me well (not to mention it will do others well too). I realized I could be prudent in so many areas of my life that I have just been neglecting or just floating along being complacent. Okay, so in this blog I am going to write about a lot of areas in my life. Hopefully, some of you will help me stay accountable and also maybe be encouraged in your own life. So, here it goes….I am jumping into the blogging world!

  1. Tapping the publish button took a lot of courage with purpose. God Bless you and others in this journey of intentional living!

  2. We can all use to be more prudent in our life, especially if we want to “give thought to our steps” as the Bible instructs us to do! Thanks for making us think about it today – :). Now, I have to go be prudent with my time!!

    • I wish it didn’t take me 30+ years to realize this idea of prudence. I have always “planned” for the future but haven’t applied that to all areas of my life. I have taken steps and haven’t always given thought to them…and sometimes I end up in a place I didn’t want to go. I really like the idea of being prudent with our time. I might use that idea for a future post 🙂 Thanks!
