Welcome to Busy Blessed Women!

I’m glad you’re here! 

My God-given purpose is to bring the hope and encouragement of God’s Word into your everyday busy life. 

I’ve been in that busy place.  Job, family, home, and commitments filled my days and left little (or zero) time or energy to dig into the Bible.

Let me bless you with the hope, encouragement and peace from God’s Word that will be personally relevant to YOUR life.

I publish a blog post every Monday that will take you 4-5” to read and give you extra resources to put them into practice for the rest of the week if you choose.

Do you need:

Encouragement to find time for God in your busy schedule?

Resources for studying the Bible?

To build up your spiritual strength?

Ideas and resources to grow your prayer life?

You will find these and a combination of posts on Christian encouragement, spiritual growth, and general Bible study topics to help you integrate God’s character into your own busy life.

I’d also love to connect with you through my weekly newsletter.  It’s a way to let you know what’s new on the blog and what’s coming up. You can give me feedback, tell me what you’re interested in learning about or struggling with.  I love to hear your thoughts, questions, doubts, fears, and ideas.  As a thank you gift for allowing me into your inbox, I’ll send you a 12 Month Bible Reading Plan that comes with journaling pages for each month.

I’ll be reading right along with you because I’m still busy and in need of God’s encouragement and love, too! Just click on the image below:

A Little Bit about Meprofessional head shot

My whole working career has been as a Registered Nurse.  I was always determined to write children’s books, but a career and family came first. When I was able to attend an in person Bible study a few years ago, I learned that the fastest growing age group in our study were women age 70+.  Where were all the younger women?

Busy doing life.

God immediately put it on my heart and in my mind to start a blog to share His love and encouragement.  God knew I had zero knowledge on how to do this, but He has led me every step of the way.  This blog is HIS, not mine.  I’m just the vessel to share what He has already written.  It is truly amazing to watch Him work!

I love to do anything outside as long as it is warm.  I’m definitely a summer girl (living in the cold!) who loves gardening, hiking, swimming, baking, reading, sewing, and knitting.

My husband and I are now empty nesters after raising 4 children.  We are blessed with 3 adorable (of course!) granddaughters.

Please feel free to email me anytime with questions, suggestions or just to say hi!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,

AnnMarie
