I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together

by Mare Ball @ Adventures in the Ballpark

Almost three and a half three years ago I wrote my first post for Mormon Mommy Writers. I was so honored to be invited to regularly write here. I've read so many sweet/informative/relatable posts here, and I feel connected with many of the contributors.

I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn more about writing, the struggles of motherhood, and share issues of faith. When stumbling along this journey of life, communities of women are the best companions.

My life has changed over the past six months in ways that are demanding more of my attention, and I need to step away from a few things - including my time here. I hate that I can't do everything I want to do, but I don't think anybody gets that in life.  Maybe our expectations are too high, or maybe we just love too many things. Either way, my season here at MMW is closing.

I want to thank Nikki Wilson for inviting me aboard and Kasey Q her encouragement. I appreciate all the writers here who have commented on or enjoyed anything I wrote.  I'm grateful to all of you who shared your story. Writing is such a linking of hearts, isn't it?

I will always be grateful for my time here.  Welcome other writers like you did me. I'll be checking in, so keep up the good work!

I'd love to stay connected:



BLOG Adventures in the Ballpark

much love from my Ballpark,



  1. Sad to see you go Mare. Best of luck!

  2. I'm sad to see you leave the blog but I will stalk you on Facebook! Thank you for being brave enough to write on our blog even if your religion is different from ours. The truth is you helped everyone see that the similarities of our beliefs in God are far greater than the differences! You brought our communities closer together with your heartfelt words and example! Thank you, Mare! I want to be like you when I grow up!

  3. We will miss you! I have so enjoyed reading your work on here, Mare, and I wish you all the best in your other endeavors (which, like Nikki, I will be stalking on Facebook). :-) And I echo Nikki's other sentiments as well. We love to join hands with our sisters from other faiths and we love you!

  4. Mare we were just talking about you in our local ANWA chapter, how much we admired you and loved the sharing of faith that we feel with you. I will miss you on this blog, as I always look forward to reading your thoughts.

    I guess I'm gonna have to take up stalking like my esteemed colleagues, eh?

    Much love,

  5. thanks for all the nice comments! Please follow me wherever I am! I'm checking in here too. :-) I DO love that people of different faiths can worship the same God. We have a BIG God!!
