My name is Amy and I am so glad you’ve stopped by. This blog is an extension of me, so, please, come on in…sit down, get comfy, and let’s talk!

What this blog is about:
  • Grief Support – These pages contain a unique and candid look into the life of a grieving mother. On February 10 of 2008, we lost our 5th child, Emily. You’ll read not only of raw emotion, but of the hope we have in Christ. It is our prayer that what you read here will uplift and encourage.
About the name Raising Arrows:
Psalm 127: 3-5 says,
“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one€™s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.”

The Lord views children as an important part of the family unit. They are called a “reward” and a “heritage.” It is our duty as parents to recognize the privilege of raising children whom God has blessed with unique gifts, talents and personalities. No two quivers (families) are exactly alike just as no two arrows are fashioned the same.

Raising Arrows is all about keeping in mind the fact that as Christians, we are raising unique individuals who will someday be let loose to fly with precision and accuracy at the target set before them by the Lord. We shape and sand selflessly with that thought in mind.

Where do you as a reader fit in at Raising Arrows?

This blog is a dialogue…not a monologue. This is a place where we can learn from each other. It won’t take you long to see this blog is full of interaction. I am not an island and I thoroughly enjoy reading the comments left here by others who are willing to engage in the conversation and offer their own insights and opinions.

I do expect everyone to play nice and weigh their words against God’s Word before responding here. However, I do not expect cookie-cutter Christianity and I highly encourage those with differing opinions to be brave and join in!

That said, my main passion here at Raising Arrows is that you would walk away provoked to thought, edified, and refreshed. I pray your time spent here is blessed!
