Yikes!

IMG_0409Oh this is really scary! I’m stepping out on a huge limb and starting my blog. I’ve prayed about this and now I’m stepping through the door that I believe God wants for me.  I have to admit that I’m very nervous.  I’m not a huge talker or writer for that matter, and I usually sit quiet in the background and let my husband do all the talking.  If you know him you’ll know that he likes being front of people. If you don’t, he’s a pastor/music minister, so speaking in public is his thing, and not mine, but here I am nonetheless.

Let me take a minute and introduce myself.  My name, of course, is Deanna.  I’m 48 and I am the proud wife of Monty Bounds, pastor and worship leader of 19th Avenue Baptist Church.  We have been married for 30 years, and we have two beautiful daughters who have grown into wonderful young women, and two bonus daughters, who are their best friends, but I claim them as mine, and let me tell you, I’m equally as proud of them! Last but not least, I have a bonus Granddaughter, and she is the BEST THING EVER! My husband and I live in Hattiesburg, MS, but we’ve lived in Columbus, MS, Albertville, AL, Van Buren, AR, and Denham Springs, LA.

I work full time in banking as a loan processor and now a blogger. YIKES! I am a self-professed gadget girl.  I love trying new techie things, so part of this blog will talk about the new items I am trying or have discovered.  I also LOVE make up and all things beauty related, so I will be reviewing new make up and skincare that I have found, and I want to discuss with you what God is doing in my life.  To be honest with you, I’m guilty of letting life get in the way, and sometimes I forget that my God owns the cattle on a thousand hills.  I like to try and fix things.  What can I say about that, except that I think it’s a mom thing.  We want our nest to be in a neat order, and all our chicks to be in a row.  If things get out of hand, I like to reign them back in.  Over the short 48 years of my life, I’m slowly learning that I can’t always fix things.  That sometimes the problems are too big for me, and I must fully rely on God to fix them for me.  I know it’s in those times that God is molding me and making me into the person that He wants me to be. I want to open up with you about that journey.

In a nutshell, that’s who I am. I so look forward to the adventure, and to see what God has in store for me!

Until Next Week,

Deanna
