Today I get to introduce you to a long-term client of mine, and one who has grown dear to my heart. I’ve done several different designs with Lindsey and I always smile when I see her name in my email inbox. I promise that you’ll love her heart too. I’m very honored to get to introduce you to this week’s Blog of the Week.
Lindsey, Let the Light Shine
Explain the meaning behind the name of your blog.
My blog has changed a lot over the last few years. I recently realized that the most important thing in my life - my faith - wasn't standing out as it should be. I heard two songs that made me want to change my blog. The first one was "Live Like That" by the Sidewalk Prophets and my tagline is a verse from that song - "I want to show the world the love you gave for me... I'm longing for the world to know the glory of the King." Then I heard the Kari Jobe song "Let the Light Shine" and knew that is what I wanted my new blog title to be named!
How long have you been blogging? Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging in December 2008. It started as an outlet for me during a particularly difficult time in my life. I love looking back and seeing how God worked in my life and I have reached an amazing place.
What do you love most blogging?
I'm not sure I could pinpoint one thing I love most about blogging. The people are amazing! I have made some of my best friends through blogging. Another thing I love is being able to chronicle my family's life. If I forget something, I can just look back at my blog and smile and remember a great day with my family.
What's the most surprising thing you've discovered since you began blogging?
I was most surprised by the friendships that would develop through blogging. I e-mail, text, and call my blog friends more than anyone else!
What is the one thing you want others to know about yourself, or your blog?
The most important things in my life are faith and family!
