Endings and Beginnings

by Becky Porter

One of the great things, for me, about this time of year is the opportunity for self-evaluation and reflection.  I love setting new goals and refocusing my priorities.

Last night as I pondered where I am and where the Lord needs me to be, I received a clear witness that my efforts and focus need to be 100% on my family right now.  I have been involved in many wonderful, worthwhile pursuits lately such as writing for this blog.  I know that Heavenly Father is pleased with my efforts and those things that I have done in the past, but I also know that it is time for me to move on.

I am excited to focus on my children and my home.  There are many voices in the world which try to tell women they can be anything...except content to be "just" a homemaker and stay-at-home mother. Everyone has a different purpose here on earth.  I have always been thrilled that my glorious call is to raise children.  It is a great and awesome work (not to mention crazy hard!) to provide a loving, safe, good environment for children and raise them to be loving, hard-working citizens.  I am grateful for this chance to focus completely on it.

Thank you, readers, for your positive feedback and encouragement.  I hope that all your endings are sweet and your beginnings are positive this new year.



  1. Love you, Becky. Thanks for all your insight and your beautiful spirit!

  2. I have enjoyed your posts, Becky. God bless and good luck.

  3. We've loved having you and will miss you! Thank you for the reminder that it's okay to "just" want to focus on your family.

  4. I will miss you! But I applaud your decision to focus on family. Sometimes we just have to trust in the Lord and follow His path for us. I wish you well- keep in touch! :-)

  5. There is a time and a season for everything. God is calling you to be with your family, and that's an honorable pursuit. Our family is our first responsibility. Thank you for all your work here!
