Introduction

Ideas applied to life will be a record of my own ideas that I apply to my life as well as musings on others ideas and there applications. I am a housewife and am striving to be a homemaker. I say I am a housewife because I am in the traditional sense a wife who stays at home and does “housewife-ly” things such as cleaning the house, cooking, laundry, etc. I am striving to be a homemaker in that I am still in the process of learning how to best facilitate ways to make my house atmosphere welcoming, inviting and relaxing.

I wanted to title my new blog “Ideas…Applied” because I often have grand ideas, but just as often, I fail to follow through. I want to apply my ideas to my life and actually do them! Not only that, but I also want to analyze the consequences of some ideas. I was introduced to the concept “Ideas have consequences” at Summit Ministries. While Summit Ministries concerns itself with the main topics relevant to worldview (topics like biology, theology, ethics, etc), I find that ideas about parenting or housekeeping do have consequences in my life that directly affect my family and those around me. I want a record of the consequences of my ideas or others ideas I adopt.

I plan to update this blog three times a week on average. Some weeks I will post a little more, and some weeks I will post a little less. Topics I will write about include my exposure to ideas through books, radio or church services, my goals and there outcomes, things I am thankful for as well as just writing about real life. I enjoy the theoretical and the ideal, but real life is not theoretical or ideal all the time! Sometimes we do just need to be real. I may also write an in depth essay about the consequences of an idea in the past, but I do not have a set schedule or even too many ideas about that just yet.

Hopefully, this blog will be enjoyable and maybe even an encouragement to any readers or visitors!

God Bless,
